Create Second Tier Less Expensive Occupations

Explore "second tier" concepts as a much lower cost alternative to extremely costly services and professions. Just as a security guard fulfills a valid function at 20% of the cost of a police officer, so can many functions be fulfilled similarly. Pharmacists can fill out Rx's under some circumstances, bookeepers often due a better job than CPA's, lower priced peace officers can handle noise complaints instead of sending the swat team; traffic specialists can direct traffic instead of highly paid police officers. I am sure there are many other very pricey functions that could be just as effectively fulfilled at a lower cost and be a jobs creator as well. Another example is the Physician Assistant. There can be MANY ASSISTANT type occupations a a second tier lower cost and sensible alternative to many activities.
