I have no idea what the provenance of Granite Geek is, but a few days back they published Calling all COBOL cowhands!.
On the page is a link to an article on Medium's OneZero entitled IBM Rallies COBOL Engineers to Save Overloaded Unemployment Systems.
That links to an item on IBM's own site, written by Meredith Stowell, Vice President, IBM Z Ecosystem, entitled IBM and Open Mainframe Project Mobilize to Connect States with COBOL Skills.
Finally, that links to IBM and Open Mainframe Project Mobilize to Connect States with COBOL Skills, also written by Meredith Stowell.
So not only is COBOL not going away anytime soon, there's actually serious money to be made knowing and programming in it. You have been told!
