Let’s Remove Occupational Barriers
Ask any business owner what 10 things keep them up at night, and they’ll tell you that nine of them are talent. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, our businesses have made a herculean effort to keep the public safe and keep people on payroll while following emergency orders to reduce capacity or even temporarily stop operating. Now is not the time to keep barriers in between businesses who need talent and Floridians who need jobs with family-supporting wages. Floridians should be free to pursue trades such as painting, flooring, remodeling and more without unnecessary licensing requirements, and businesses should be free to hire them without barriers.
