If I wasn't so interested in Asia (since I'm Asian American), I would've seriously considered Germany as one of the countries to expatriate to... It's a lovely place to live and work-in, although quite expensive, but think of all the benefits you get that you would normally not receive in the United States such as: free healthcare, free college education, paid-apprenticeship training, and month-long vacations, etc...German women are a bit better than their American counterparts--but still very snobbish and feminist for the most part. I would prefer to date Easter Europeans if I had to chance to live in Germany...
Why is it a myth? As I understand it, its a scheme to get skilled workers but pay them less than native Germans. The same thing America has been doing since WWII.
Thanks for the information djfourmoney, Germany is one country I am seriously interested in relocating to. It has the strongest economy in Europe and it is a far better place to live if your a single man than the US is.
Workers in Germany get 6 weeks paid vacation a year and 12 paid holidays! That alone makes me want to move to Germany right now!
Another thing I love about Germany is that prostitution is legal and cheap, the average price is only 60 euros (which is $ 72 American dollars).
I watch House Hunters International all the time and have seen several episodes of people buying homes and condo's in Germany. Berlin Germany from the research I have done is the least expensive big city to live in, in all of Europe.
One episode of House Hunters International, had a guy buy a one bedroom condo in downtown Berlin for the equivalent of only $99,000 American dollars. Compare that to Chicago where I live, a one bedroom condo downtown costs a minimum of $ 200,000!
I can't wait to check out Berlin, Germany is looking better and better to me every day!
