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?

Yes, but...

Take the starting job, build experience. When the economy turns around, those with experience will command a higher salary. One has to invest in oneself, and in the skills one brings to the job. Think of it like this: They are paying you to go to school.
