Americans: If you are/were unemployed, would you look for work overseas?

Only if I'd exhausted every single option here, which is pretty much impossible.

The reason I'd look for work overseas is because I want to travel and living in Europe would make it cheaper to see a lof of what I want to see.

I worked overseas before I was married or had kids. I don't think that I would consider it now unless I had no other way of supporting us.

Sure, I'd love to go someplace new. If there's a good job in an interesting place, I'd go for it.

Oh yes; we have a terrible influx of Western Europeans looking for jobs in the US.
But in all seriousness, the US is not a particularly nice place to work in comparison to many other places.
For example: when I worked in IKEA in Oslo, I was paid 106 Kroner per hour, which according to Google is $18.58.

And this is the below-eighteen pay.

why can't the rest of us discuss this?

I have worked overseas and it was great. I'd do it again.
