Does anyone hire alternate route teachers? If so, in what area and on what planet?
Sure - but you will have to apply for and be accepted into each district's individual alternate route program. Most major cities have such a program, such as NYC Teach.
After you complete the program, you will have that state's credential, and you can work anywhere. During the program, you are usually restricted to that district that is sponsoring the program.
They certainly hire them in California. Locally they seem to be pretty much limited to single subject (middle school, high school) math, science, special ed, English and Spanish. There is a glut of multiple subject (elementary) candidates who are already credentialed. Some other parts of California seem to be hiring multiple subject interns, though.
