We Shouldn't Have to Ask the State's Permission to Work

Quote:
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a magic bullet that would simultaneously raise wages and employment while also lowering prices for consumers?

In fact, those are just some of the benefits that reforming overly burdensome occupational licensing laws would provide, according to a report published by the White House Council of Economic Advisers, the Department of the Treasury, and the Department of Labor.

Quote:
Licensing laws are appropriate for professions that carry a substantial risk of physical harm. But Nevada’s go far beyond that narrow scope. In fact, nearly 31 percent of the Silver State’s workforce must first obtain government approval in order to work — the second highest rate nationwide. By comparison, the national rate back in the 1950s was only 4 percent.

For many of these professions, licensing is simply inappropriate. Consider the 2011 law that made it a criminal offense to practice music therapy without a license. But even for professions where licensing is appropriate, Nevada is often far too burdensome — with exorbitant fees and prolonged training periods that bear no relationship to the regulation’s alleged purpose of safeguarding “life, health, and property.”

Barbers, for example, must submit to a national-high 890 days of education and apprenticeship, pass four exams and pay $140 in fees. Add to this the fact that Nevada does not offer reciprocity for licenses obtained in other states, including the 33 other states that require, at most, 350 days of education and training.

Yet an emergency medical technician can receive a license after only 26 days of education.

General contractors — such as painters, cabinet makers, and pipe layers — must pay a national-high $1,030 and lose four years to an apprenticeship before the State will permit them to work.

And then there is the most egregious form of industry protection in the country: Nevada’s licensing of interior designers, a profession for which 46 other states rightly require no license at all. Nevada demands payment of a $250 fee and six years of education or experience before one is allowed to dispense such potentially dangerous advice as which sofa or coffee table would go best with the living room décor.

The harm caused by these laws runs deep.

A just-released Arizona State University study finds that states with the heaviest licensing burdens experienced higher levels of recidivism than their counterparts. This validates the common-sense intuition that limiting access to gainful employment only makes it harder on those trying to rebuild their lives.

Great subject, I do not do business in NV but had to get my license for CA while my home state of Colorado does not require one.

NV regulatory agencies make the Mafia blush and cripple productivity. I did go to a trades show in LV and was told that the unions have a huge influence with such restrictive requirements and not to mention the State wants a slice of the pie.

So, a great many times the laws/regulations hindering business are STATE laws and NOT Federal regulations.
Agreed.

We are a nation of states, not people. That is how the county was created. Until the states give up their statehoods, legislatures, governorships, and borders, that is the way it is.

Exactly. You want to see the ultimate scam by the states, just look at their licensing requirements. If Trump wants to put his money where his mouth is, he should sign an executive order that requires the Dept. of Labor to enforce one standard for all 50 states where a trades license is required to work at the journeyman level. Every state should only be allowed to charge a small fee to recognize any worker holding that license from another state. Continuing education should only be a maximum of 8 hours that can be taken on line every 24 months from the issue date of the original license.
