Message Subject Holy crap, Machinist in Nevada starting pay $12hr with benefits
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
I'm a fully qualified machinist (CNC/programming & manual machining) in Australia, and I can't believe the rates you mention.
Even taking into account exchange rates at there worst, $12/hr is below minimum wage for a qualified trades person.
When I finished my training in machining, I was put on $30/hr, which is pretty standard around the shops I have worked in.
Now though, with 7 years experience - I won't be getting out of bed for less than $42/hr...
Hope things pick up for the US economy! cool2
