Don't think they'll be able to replace ageing machinists or fill in any gap with skilled foreigners as they're a dying breed worldwide...unless Co's are happy to hire mere button pushers with no particular manual and math skills, which I think, is going to be the future of the industry.
What's going to happen is: they'll realise it's a lost battle - no way they're going to get enough youth to pursue this career as things get even worse in workshops, with all the retirements pending.
However, wages have gone up 15-30% in the last years. Yes, they have! But only for the very skilled ones and piss takers like Click Bond aside. But so they have in China where I saw ads for up to $450 on equal positions for locals, compared to $200 of 10 years ago.
The few skilled remaining will set up and program the machines and as someone here mentioned, the job will become sort of a Burger King type job. Retrain job-seekers will result non cost effective on the long run.
