My questions are: Would they be paid? If so, by whom? All Volunteer? Perhaps some would opt for just having the Medical/Obamacare paid for.
If one of these were to be hurt/injured on the job, who is liable?
I know there are many who would just do it for FREE, that is noble, but job injury is a matter to be considered by all.
I don't think the Government will ever allow a VOLUNTEER to do this. Only Unions need apply.
Unfortunately, history, read TSA (must federalize to professionalize), shows you are likely correct in this point.
