Thinking about working/living in Greece?

From an American struggling to survive in Greece for ten years through thick and mostly thin:

I have a university education and 10 years professional experience in my field in the U.S. and Europe, which supposedly helps me beat out hundreds of other qualified workers of all nationalities and hundreds of other applicants whose CVs didn’t make the cut, according to my employers.

Ironically, I usually work alongside people who have no university education, no experience, no language proficiency, no skills and no work ethic for the same salary or higher than mine. (Greece was surveyed as working more hours than the EU average, but productivity is quite another issue).

She goes on with detailed information. Its very interesting. I wonder if every expat has these issues. Would love to hear from the ‘americaninparis’…
