Title: RE: Lack of Drafters

One solution that has worked well for me is to hire architects as CAD operators.  It's very much like the old joke about lawyers replacing laboratory mice.  Architects make reasonably good candidates for structural CAD operator positions because:

1]      They are plentiful (especially now).

2]      They are inexpensive (because they are plentiful).

AND ....

3]      You are less likely to grow attached to them.

Of course, you might have to put up with some stupid discussions about what color primer to use!
