the gdp per capita of England is $35,000, whereas Turkey`s gdp per capita is just $12,000. That means England is almost 3 times richer than Turkey. Thus it has more and better job opportunities for imigrants.

 

If that`s not the case, why do you get immigration. do people come england because they love the nature and climate there?

 

 Sorry Tami, but industry is shedding jobs, retail is shedding jobs!  Woolworths is closing losing 30,000 jobs, MFI had closed, Focus stores have closed, banking, or much of it had been nationalised and many jobs have been lost and I don´t how many jobs have been lost.  In the New Year, it is expected that 10 major high street retailers will go bust.  House prices have fallen something like 25% in a year.  Construction is in decline. No one can get a mortgage. England is not the bed of roses it was just a year ago.

 

Do you know what is keeping the UK going?  Government spending, government contracts.  Not a lot else I am afraid.  Recession is hitting hard and deep and people still want to come here.  For pity´s who the hell knows why.

 

GDP is always out of date.  But we have freedom, well sort of {#lang_emotions_unsure}

 

I forgot to mention, the car industry is also on the verge of colapse and they are talking about bailing it out.

 

Now does England /UK sound quite so appealing?

Is the cost of living calculated in this? I hear UK being referred to as "Rip-off Britain", my guess is due to the high cost of living.  How does it compare to Turkey? I don´t know what the actual numbers would be for either country, but my guess is it´s not as high in Turkey. So what if you make $35k a year if you have to spend $1,200+ a month for mortgage?

 

Opps, you´re talking GDP ... never mind.

Maybe GDP but that means didly squat when you are out of a job and USA will know what that is like too!  Unemployment is rising like the tide from a Tsunami in both countries.

Good..

The rule of the thumb is that you have to know your own history before trying to critisize the others..

Otherwise, you will embarres yourself and your own country..

I know there are illegal Mexican immigrants in America who work for $800 a month in very bad conditions.

 

the cost of living in Turkey might not be as high as that in England, but the rate of average income over average living costs is still way higher in England.

 Tami, why are you always trying to compare England with Turkey?  Turkey is beautiful a wonderful place.  But England is where I was born.  The cost of living here is much more than that of Turkey.  Maybe we get paid more, but it is relative.  I dispute that your cost of living is higher than ours, but I do not have proof.  When we come to Turkey every thing is so much cheaper, jeans for instance, you can buy in Turkey for about £20 (but I bet a Turk would pay less) in the UK the same jeans are about £60 or £70  maybe as much as £120.00.  You can get a meal for about £7.00 - you can hardly get a McDonalds shitty burger for that here.

 

It is not a competition you know, we all have our good points and our bad points, and it is accepting those good and bad points that count.
