It has been a dieing trade in Michigan. In the past 5 years we have lost hundreds of shops and thousands of machinists to China, Mexico, and other countries. Anything related to, or in support of the auto industry has taken a
nasty beating. at least around these parts. I hear the demand is high in oilfield type work, and aerospace is doing pretty good too. Southwest and
Northwest parts of the country.
It is a rewarding trade tho, I find it very nice to be able to take a hunk of metal and make something from it.
And if you can get some side work to do in your garage, as I have been able to do just recently, you can make some pretty good bucks.
