Government makes it harder to work for a living

The Insanity of Liberalism  -  Mountains of Government Regulations.
The stupidity of big government liberalism has full control of both political parties.

Bi-Partisan Stupidity  -  Both parties at every level of government put in place more and more Big Government regulations just to go to work
  • Government requires you to beg them (and pay money) to get a license for the right to work for a living.
  • No matter which party is in power these insane laws are never repealed.  They only grow bigger. 

Getting a License to Just to Work.  
A National Study of Burdens from Occupational Licensing is the first national study to measure how burdensome occupational licensing laws are for lower-income workers and aspiring entrepreneurs.
The report documents the license requirements for 102 low- and moderate-income occupations—such as barber, massage therapist and preschool teacher—across all 50 states and the District of Columbia. It finds that occupational licensing is not only widespread, but also overly burdensome and frequently irrational.

On average, these licenses force aspiring workers to spend nine months in education or training, pass one exam and pay more than $200 in fees. One third of the licenses take more than a year to earn. At least one exam is required for 79 of the occupations.
Barriers like these make it harder for people to find jobs and build new businesses that create jobs, particularly minorities, those of lesser means and those with less education.
I am waiting for the day for a politician to run for office on a platform to repeal laws.  But I am a dreamer.


You cannot even cut hair without getting government permission.  You must also take government approved hair cutting education classes and pay fees to the government for the right to work in your own profession.
