If this were a union, or a shared-opportunity collective of
workers-helping-workers, the idea could go really far!

I will pay *anyone* who can guarentee me a job 200$ per paycheck as long
as they keep me represented, plugged for new jobs (taken with them),
mentored, etc.

Changing to 200$ per paycheck 'royalties' for the poor man's agent or
recruiter one could make a killing. It would motivate agencies to help as
many people as fast as possible as frequently as possible. It would
motivate the industry to move forward on alot of backlogged projects.

I think it's time we as a group started defending ourselves like a group.
