I bet not, too, however, the exchange rate makes even a poor $US salary seem good.  Look at all the nurses looking south!  And that's what drives the influx of "import" professionals.  Japan has the same problem.  For all their "we are number one", and their "pure race" rhetoric, since the late 80's they have had to bend and get foreign labour to do the jobs the local boys now frown on.  Is that the case in the US too?  And Canada is facing a similar problem.  With NAFTA all the big American companies are being tempted to buy the local ones etc.  I'll bet it's one of those 90's syndromes.  One day we'll all be "brown".

Will Canadian engineers work for a box of "CoaCoa Puffs" an hour?  I bet
not.
