Why do you think there’s such a large divide between US and Europe salaries?

Some of the US comp packages are 3x its counterparts in Europe. Why do you think this is? Do you think salaries will rise in Europe as talent becomes global? As someone living in Europe, what can we do to make sure we don't get the short end of the stick?

One thing to consider is how much an employee cost for the company not just the salary itself, also the risk of employment in the US versus Europe. Employment "at-will" does not exist in Europe, and consider how hard it is to fire an employee in Europe.

Unfortunately it is a complex answer and more than just money is considered.
