Absolutely right on your rant concerning the discretion and experience needed to make a decent program, and that doesn't even begin to delve into fixturing and other make-or-break issues....

CNC isn't always the end-all answer, especially when you are prototyping or fabing a one-off piece. Writing the program would take as long and getting out there and turning the screws....

I work with a bunch of button-pushers who probably could not tram a head to save their lives...

That all said, $12/ hr. is piss-poor pay for what they are expecting.
