I thought that French researchers were paid more. Given those miserably low wages, I now understand why my friends who went to École Polytechnique, École Normale Supérieure (and other grand écoles) all left Science. ALL of them. They're in Consulting and Finance now. Those career tracks probably will allow them to pay the rent and have kids before the age of 45.

Interesting data! How does it compare with the situation in other European countries, in particular Switzerland?
