Generally No. For comparable institutions in terms of worldwide ranking, European universities usually stand at 50% or even lower in terms of yearly costs of study when compared to the US. This is not only due to the significantly lower tuition fee, but also due to the lower cost of living for students in Europe.
Generally yes, European diplomas do not represent an impediment for getting hired in the US. In fact, plenty of American employers have appreciated the international nature and experience that came with some of our graduates' degrees.
There are of course exceptions when it comes to qualifications in some highly specialized fields, such as medicine or accounting, which are not directly transferable due to differing practices and standards. However, even for these there are usually short tracks for those certified abroad in order to get the US equivalent qualifications.
In general, private employers tend to look at the practicality of the degree and the candidate's own interview performance rather than the particular source of the degree, especially when it comes to large, international companies. To date, we have yet to hear of a case where a European graduate, regardless of citiezenship, has failed to create a career in the US with a European degree (from a properly recognized and accredited university).

While the application process itself is not very difficult, the particularities of studying abroad and the research involved in finding proper options usually take weeks for an individual to become fully aware of, and that is when they know for certain what they are looking for. The amount of effort and time consumed searching for options usually scares most students away, and for those that persevere, they usually miss other viable options due to their lack of knowledge regarding the European environment.
Yes. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is usable in order to obtain financing for studying at over 500 European Institutions. In addition, for military personnel or dependents, the GI Bill can offer a distinctly beneficial financing option for studying in Europe.
Yes, with exceptions. While some areas allow complete freedom in this regard, generally, European countries restrict the amount of weekly workhours their students are allowed to take in an employment contract. It is also at the discretion of the university whether they will restrict allowed workhours for their full-time students.

Permitted workhours also vary significantly based on the level of studies. Graduate level students generally have no restrictions regarding their work arrangements.
