this is Leo Bobby Bob Bob he's been a hardcore software developer since the young age of one after many years of practice he's finally ready to get a job but there's one thing that Leo Bobby Bob Bob is wondering first what place will offer me the most money you see brewski if you were in little Bobby Bob Bob's place then you'd want to go to America more precisely to this part of America and if you didn't do so then you'd most probably have to say goodbye to your hopes and dreams of ever driving a sick Lambo you see Brosky 1/7 of the US economy is based on information and technology but less than one percent of the nation's workforce is actually driving it six of the top ten largest IT companies in the world are located in the US and each one of them earns more than four billion per quarter since there is a lack of qualified people and a lot of work to do these tech giants are competing both with each other as well as with smaller companies by offering bigger salaries than anyone else in order to attract the most competent software developers even if this translates to greater costs but again they can afford it because fuck you small companies so if normal companies would pay between 70 to 90 K for a developer Google Amazon or Apple would be offering between 100 to 200 K because they can easily afford it the u.s. is also the first country in the world in terms of venture capital investments averaging around 80 billion dollars worth of investments as for only the year of 2018 this means that big companies also have to compete with startups for top talent pushing the average salaries even higher considering all of this as well as how outside of the US companies perceive software developers to be just another requirement for daily business operation just like any other job you can begin to see why little Bobby Bob Bob is keen on traveling all the way to the USA for work in order to get his dream Lambo well I guess would you like to buy some drugs you know
