10 Jobs You Didn't Know Need Licenses
Makeup Artist– "Makeup artists are licensed in 36 states which consistently require three to nine months of education and experience, two exams and an average of $116 in fees to get a license," Erickson said. "In several states, an exception is made for make-up artists working in theaters, while those in salons, spas or making house calls are required to be licensed."

Auctioneers– "Auctioneers are licensed in 33 states, with requirements varying from just a $15 fee in Hawaii to $650 in fees, two exams and over two years lost to education and an apprenticeship in Tennessee. Auctioneers are another occupation Michigan is considering deregulating," said Erickson.

Funeral Attendant– "Funeral attendants place caskets in the parlor, arrange the flowers around it and direct mourners, among other simple duties. They are only licensed in nine states, which on average require two days of training and $167 in fees," she said.

Interior Designer– "The four states that license interior designers require six years of education and apprenticeship," she said.

Travel Agent– "Despite the ease of booking travel over the Internet, eight states license travel agents who are charged fees ranging from $15 to $375 in order to obtain a license," said Erickson.

Shampooer– "Five states license shampooers who only shampoo and rinse customers’ hair in salons," Erickson said. "Tennessee has the most onerous requirements at 70 days of training, two exams and $140 in fees."

Florist– "Florists are only licensed in Louisiana, which requires them to pay $225 and pass an exam."

My chosen profession, which I have done for most of my life, was recently declared illegal to do in my home state without a license. Now if I am caught doing my job without a state issued licensed, I will be subject to fines and possibly jail.

America, land of the fee and home of the slave.


Yes, as through this world I've wandered
I've seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.

And as through your life you travel,
Yes, as through your life you roam,
You won't never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home.

It's disgusting. They simply must get their greasy fingers in every single little pot.

So sick of this country I can hardly take it anymore.

I wish I had the money to leave.

New Jersey won't let its residents pump their own gas, so I assume the gas station attendant has to go to gas pumping college or some bullshit and get a license.

I am a licensed firearm holder. I will, under protection of law, use lethal force if attacked.

Re: 10 Jobs You Didn't Know Need Licenses
I had the same problem. I tried to apply for a license only to be told they had raised the cost to over $500.

My solution? Keep working and don't tell them. Trying to make work illegal.

Cops should be licensed.

Re: 10 Jobs You Didn't Know Need Licenses
Yeah and in Tennessee contractors have to have a license in most places and also workers comp.

My dad started his contracting business with a hammer and a saw and a Toyota Celica.

He became a fairly popular home builder and got licensed when they started requiring it, but he couldn't have started that way.

I don't believe in licensing for everything. It's just a money racket.

Seventy days of training to shampoo hair? LOL I think agencies just want to bilk all the fees they can from people.

Re: 10 Jobs You Didn't Know Need Licenses
Yes there are abuses in licensing fees. But a lot of things need to be licensed to protect people. Licensing fees are not consistent and in a lot of cases what's required to be licensed isn't consistently applied or updated.

I know someone with is own business. If someone files a complaint, this man has to pay for a state inspector to come out to investigate. If found compliant, the business owner still has to pay for the investigation. Gas stations are inspected all the time. The gas station has to pay for every inspector visit in most states.

I live in Delaware and it is illegal to beg for money unless you have a business license. I think the license is $150 a year. I don't know why business licenses are even necessary for anything. You can loose the license if you don't pay income taxes.

How about not making licenses mandatory, and letting the customer decide whether they want a licensed person to do the job or not.

I mean hey, isn't the Government for "the right to choose"?

Yeah,

certifications and licensing is a scam

a big money scam

states rake in millions every year from these entities

Most jobs that were in existence 40 to 50 years ago did not require any of this and everything worked fine

it is all about $$$$$$$$$$


They are making now, nurse case managers have a certificate to do their jobs in most states....it is becoming more of a requirement to get a job as a case manager

The test is over 300 dollars in my state , the books are 80 dollars on average to buy

it is a money 'laundering' racket ;with money scam written all over it

I have done this job for years

why do I need a piece of expensive paper?? to justify it?


because some lawyer groups decided it needs a certificate

this country allowed the lawyers in

and now they are everywhere

they follow you into the toilet if they could!!
