Occupational licensure roundup

One Comment

  • I’ve read several articles here about licensing. Right now there’s something going on that, in my opinion, is destroying the argument in favor of licensing.

    I’m not sure about other States, but, the one I live in (Pennsylvania) requires training in infection prevention. This makes hair salons and barber shops one of the few businesses that should be open, because they are qualified to be open. I’ve also seen recommendations that shortening hair length and the removal of facial hair would help stop the spread because there would be less places for the virus to stay and it would be easier to keep clean.

    The majority of the arguments is that the required training for licensing helps keep the public safe. Well by ordering the closure of hair salons and barbershops that kind of blows that one.
