It took me 40yrs to get to $30 an hour. Nobody wants to earn it anymore.
I don't think OP was looking for a kid out of school. It sounds like he's after an experienced machinist. I just know that if you told me it would take 40-years to make $30/hr I would definitely not be interested in mastering that craft; hard work or not (no offense). So if you want the cream of the crop young men/women to consider your field, the income needs to be higher. Otherwise, you get what you pay for...
