Abolish Occupational Licensing

Occupational licensing laws target and oppress poor and middle class entrepreneurs, but this case, from my home state no less, is the most ridiculous thing I’ve read in a long time.
Take the case of a certain teacher at my daughter’s daycare.  She is a struggling single mother, she has no car and walks or rides the bus everywhere. She’s knowledgeable, experienced and great with the kids, despite any lack of formal training or college education.
She was recently forced to spend dozens of hours and hundreds of dollars in order to get a certificate to prove to the state she is capable of the job she’s already doing. This is the height of foolishness.
It’s time to abolish occupational licenses.
