+$1K (2%) more than national average Machinist salary ($37K)
Equal to average Surface Manufacturing salary ($38K) "At this company I feel it was a little low at the time and I probably would have done fantastic if I could of still been there. But having to move around so much didn't help me there. I feel like I have lost so much. I feel like I could of been making what I'm worth but never got the right opportunity. Moving around helped with the knowledge but not the pay. I feel all jobs are temporary now and I'll never have a chance to make a good living again. There's just so much I wanted to do and with immigrants taking all our jobs now I will not have opportunities ever again. The immigrants have taken our jobs along with the good pay and benefits to crappy pay with no benefits to no jobs. Nowadays we can't live in our own hoods. We can't live in our own homes they have taken from us. We can't afford to drive hours to work. We have no jobs to go to. It's a lose-lose situation. I'm hoping for a huge crash to hopefully clean out what has made our towns go bad. Bringing back good life, good jobs, good benefits, good people. That's what I'm hoping for. A good living, good home, good money, good people. Get these immigrants out of our business. I want to see parents making good money, not college kids coming out of college taking over our pay we so long have worked for. It's killing my self esteem. We can't live on 11 bucks an hour, that's how much they should be paying our kids that have no experience. What's happening to our economy is depressing for us American parents that have worked so many years learning these jobs and trades, that for them to give to immigrants and kids coming out of college is so wrong and discreetly discriminatory, that this government should be fired for what they are doing to our great nation and they should be on the unemployment lines, not us who have worked hard to get where we have gone. I just hope something can pull us back into our own jobs where we can exceed, instead of starve to death on unemployment. It's awful."
