Consider yourself lucky, at least there are some Ada jobs. Over here in the
Netherlands there are simply none. And hardly anything in the rest of the
EU. Or at least, I cannot find them.

Ok, so there are some low paying jobs, which usually amount to either
tweaking a UML design to fit Ada or converting existing Ada83 into C++.

Maybe I'm in a pessimistic mood, but I have given up the idea of ever using
Ada again in a job setting.

Fortunately, thanks to GNAT, I can still use Ada for my own programs.
