Virginia Should Take Its Boot Off These Blue-Collar Necks

4th December 2017

Read it.

Five years ago, in its first report on the subject, IJ ranked Virginia eighth worst. Relatively speaking, the commonwealth is moving backward, not forward.

Of the 102 occupations IJ studied, Virginia licenses 68. That’s up from 46 a few years ago. And the state not only has erected more hurdles, it has raised their height as well.

Since IJ’s last report, average licensing fees have climbed from $153 to $291, and the amount of time an applicant must put in before earning a license has risen from 462 days to 620.
