Same here. Funny, when I was interviewing, I was always happy about the lack of talent. Now that I need to find people (data scientists), it's the other way round. For example, we go to the graduation days of those Bootcamps, and there is not a single person whom we can consider. Recently we've rejected a guy who was willing to work 3 months for the minimum wage, because we've concluded there is no way in hell he can learn quickly enough to bring value.I understand how someone who has never hired engineers/developers may believe what you believe, because it seems like there's so many new developers out there. But the way you describe it is not in line with reality.
Btw if you need a solid recommendation for outsourcing (I am not making any money off of that), consider Ivan Lagunov
I just know the guy, he went to the same school as I did back in Russia, and he knows what he's doing. I don't think he'll agree to $60/hour, maybe for his junior developers, but he'll be definitely better than most people on Upwork.
