Do some companies pay a lot more for this position than others? What does a top earner make in this field?

What skills should you learn to increase your salary?

Hmmmm maybe it's because he has his own business but my dad makes a ton of money as a tool
and die maker. I wish I could take over the business but I'm dyslexic and have a hard time with auxiliary views and such. People come to him because no one knows how to do the trade anymore, at least where I live. I was kind of shocked to see so much negative feedback regarding the trade.

In San Diego top dollar is 35 per hour. I know this because I have actually gotten 3 jobs and at this wage in the last year. LOL I did move around to find the right job but I have it now. I made 73K last year and will make over 80K this year. I have 30 years experience though and I am advanced in programming CNCs. It takes at least 20 years to be confident like am. I would not do this unless your in for the long haul. I started at 11 per hour and slowly moved up and rightly so, this trade is not easy.
