In 16 weeks they learned how to place the raw stock in a vise or fixture, push the green button, do secondary ops while machine is running, then take out the part and start all over. They were also taught what the big red "Oh Shit" button is for that stops the machine after the loud crunch sound is heard. They were not taught how to program or set up the machines, and probably have to get a superior to make offsets for them when the parts get out of spec.

I was there when I first started, low pay button pusher, but now have my own shop. If they have the mechanical smarts, drive and will to succeed they will quickly climb the ladder, and depending on the shop should be around $20hr. Still not great by historical standards, but competing with China is a bitch and they are keeping wages low.
