A job draft, similar to the NFL draft
The National Football League has an annual college draft. The draft is to get the best of the best college players into the NFL.
The format for the draft is simple, the NFL team with the worst record gets the first draft pick, second worse team, the second draft pick, and on from there. There are undrated players that make it to the pros, however
are few and far between.
Now imagine, teachers having a draft? You would have the principal or the college deans going to universities and scouting out the teachers who had the best grades and the best student teacher performances. Personality and charisma would also play an integral part. Those would be the first to be drafted and demand a big pay day.
There would be a large number of teachers that would never get drafted, they would come at a much lower price tag.
We could take into account other professions as well. Imagine the same scenario with EMT's, police, firemen, plumbers, electricians, doctors, nurses, CEO's, and yes, even lawyers!
Did you know, that even the NFL third string players make a minimum of $295,000 a year and will most likely not see any actually playing time. Guys on the practice squad and not even officially on any NFL team make a minimum of $6,600 a week-- and if other teams are looking at those practice squad players, their salary can go up considerably.

Maybe it's time that other professions take the ranks of the NFL and make some real money!
