Yes, there is a mechanic shortage. I was one for 42 years and now I’m in fabricating and sales. I talk to operators every day and 99”% tell me they are busy and need mechanics. A while back I had 4 different shops actually call me to see if I knew or could recommend someone. 

The shortage I read about for my entire career is here and it’s going to get worse. Pay still needs to increase but from where I sit I believe it is coming. 

If you are willing to travel the money is there. i never thought so many companies would be willing to pay travel, lodging and create flexible schedules.

Unfortunately I was born too early and dumb to take advantage of today‘s job market.  On the other hand sales are fantastic.

Hang in there because it’s only going to get better.
