Holy crap, Machinist in Nevada starting pay $12hr with benefits

Just saw the story on 60 mins about the jobs situation in the USA

3 million job openings, WOW!...the problem is the companies say that today's average applicant does not have the technical skills needed for the job(s)

2 guys went thru 16 weeks of school and were offered machinist jobs at $12hr

I thought a job of this technical skill would at least start at $16 an hour

your thoughts?

I worked in an aircraft factory in a small maryland city way back in 1978-83 and was making $12-$13/hour back then! And that was relatively unskilled....trained on the job.

And a fairly nice house cost around $50-$60,000.

You couldn't afford much of a house today off of $12/hour...devalued currency.
