I'm sure there are plenty of people who would jump at the opportunity. However relocating is a huge expense and for people already on the brink of financial disaster, taking this risk without guarantee is like spending your last 5 bucks on a lottery ticket when the kids are starving...
I'm a manual machinist by training and have operated, setup and repaired CNC equipment in the past. I know how to program and take a piece from art to part. Does that make me qualified? There isn't alot of CNC work around here, and what little there is doesn't pay nearly as well as manual machining.

I have golden ops for people! 80k, 60k and a single machinist job for up to 25$ an hour. Tell your friends, enemies and neighbors!
Tough finding good people in Ohio too. I think that the smart ones packed up and decided to move on to other careers. They keep extending unemployment benefits which means I have a stack of resumes with no one who really wants to work. They'd rather get paid to sit at home watching TV. When the benefits finally run out, do I really want that kind of person working for me? Not really.
I have way more work than I can handle at the moment and I too have days when I wonder if it's time to move on. Slim margins and even the smallest of customers are LLCs that can close down shop at any moment and stick you with unpaid invoices. Strange times man. Strange times.
