03/03/15 - If you are a cook or a cleaner, move overseas. Jobs for which you do not necessarily need a college degree are often better paid in Europe, but if you are highly specialized or educated, you might want to stay in the U.S. For example I.T. consultants, journalists and medical specialists have a better salary in the U.S. compared to other countries. That is the outcome of Washington Post research, based on WageIndicator/Paywizard data. See also: Salaries Overseas and our Salary Calculator.
