We have seen this one here before, I think

I doubt the "Dublin" side, last time I checked it was low or very low salaries!

Hmmm. Can'se seem to edit original post.

If you can't be bothered to click the link..

[FONT='Arial','sans-serif']LONDON - Like the feeling of a hefty wage packet? Move to Switzerland . That's where you'll find the two cities with the highest-paid workers in Europe , according to a new survey of wages that was released on Wednesday. Residents of Zurich, in the German-speaking part of the country , earn an average $22.60 an hour after taxes , while Geneva 's French-speaking citizens earn an average $20.40 (£12.36) an hour.[/FONT]

High wages in countries like Switzerland and Copenhagen have their drawbacks; they put off international companies from pitching their tents. It's almost certainly why Google set up an office in Wroclaw, Poland about three years ago.
It should be noted that Google also has a prominent office in Zurich, albeit an engineering centre and not a sales office.
