In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Greg Lawson, a policy analyst with The Buckeye Institute for Public Policy Solutions joins Managing Editor Jesse Hathaway to talk about a bill reforming the state’s occupational licensing rules for cosmetologists.
Occupational licensing is an issue that more and more people across the nation are learning about. Instead of protecting consumer safety, occupational licensing rules often keep people out of the jobs they want to do, and keep established players in a market in business.
Lawson explains the details of the Ohio bill, and how the current system benefits the owners of for-profit cosmetology schools at the expense of low-income individuals seeking to be allowed to advance their careers.
