UK salaries?

current mood: busy

So, in my job hunt, I've poked at some UK jobs. Probably unlikely to get them, since I'm a USian, but there's a couple I think I'd be a quite viable candidate for if you ignore that bit. Anyway, if I wanted to compare salary, cost of living, etc, any advice on where to look? Based on a few other job postings, it looks like these jobs are in a decent range for the area, but whether that's livable and what "livable" means, I have no idea. :)

As I understand it, it's incredibly unlikely you'd get a work visa unless you have (literally) unique skills (because anyone from an EU country has a right to work here so they tend to fill our skills gaps). Cost of living varies enormously from place to place. London is one of the most expensive places in the world. USians tend to get their worst shock from UK petrol/gas prices but on the plus side we tend to have better public transport. Our various sales taxes also effect cost-of-living prices for necessities as well as luxuries so there isn't an easy comparison with the US.
