It is not about the same qualifications it is about having the experience and having the experience gained from "hands on", doing your time in the "trenches" as the saying goes. Receiving that bit of paper means nothing unless you can back it up by hands on, learing the ropes, what works, what doesn't, being able to perform and achieve results, all gained by experience.

The higher wages are paid to get ppl into the jobs that have the "experience" and the only way to do that is by paying otherwise why would anyone leave an already well paid job with all the perks already included. Expats leave their own country mainly because the wages are tax free, extra job experience and the added purk of travel experience in another country.
