    Back in 1980 I entered a year-long government program (CETA) where I received paid training in machine technology in preparation to take a job as a machinist or tool and die maker. When I completed the program, the only job I could find was working as a sheet metal mechanic at just above minimum wage.

    At that point I went back to graduate school in mathematics, and I am glad that I did. Working in a machine shop was dirty and dangerous, and I doubt that I could still do it at my current age.

    I do remember what a knurl, chamfer and sine bar are, as well as orthographic projections and numerical control machines. I still have my tools, including the lead hammer that I made.

You have to do what you have to do out here to survive!

    I think these question misses the point. Any body will relocate for better prospects!
