I have to say though, I didn't think there were very many COBOL programmers
around. I have noticed that their salary levels have gotten pretty high as
the demand has remained constant for a few years with no new supply.

Now, I could understand someone looking for a language besides RPG if they
felt they were going to find a larger base of trained programmers to hire,
but I wouldn't think that would be COBOL.

How often can you afford to be unexpectedly out of business?
Get an AS/400.
