So how do you expect teachers or whoever to get raises? Should... maybe cops advocate for teacher raises, while teachers advocate for cop raises? Or should just nobody become either of those professions because society has decided they need to make barely livable wages and never any more?

My sister-in-law is a teacher here in Canada and she makes ~$80k/year with her A-levels. Teaching in Canada is a competitive profession because it offers good wages and the summer months off. Maybe not coincidentally, our education performance is better than American kids (although our universities obviously aren't as good as American ones).
