    Interesting point of view. What do you think? Is having a job a right?

    Adding the poll right now. Answers will be yes, no and I don't know.
    Sounds like that bit in Atlas Shrugged part II, where no company was allowed to fire workers...

    All kinds of work? Should healthcare professionals not require a license?

    Part of requiring licensure is to ensure that standards are met for people wanting to work in certain professions.

    Licensing makes sense in certain areas, yours for example. For cutting hair though? Not so much. It has gotten ridiculous.

    My brother's girlfriend goes to beauty school. There are reasons behind it, mainly reasons concerning hygiene.

    Personally though, I'm fine with licenses but I think they shouldn't charge a fee. I don't think someone should be charged to keep the credentials necessary to work in their field. In some areas licensing is crazy expensive, I know for me it will probably cost over $1000 to get my first license after graduating and over $500 yearly thereafter. That's just not reasonable in my opinion.

    Every employee would then be dependent under your definition.
    ...If they are not making enough to feed and house their family and are on food stamps and have subsidized housing are they not still dependent?...

    I am starting to realize that people like to bait me into extremes only to use it as ridicule. Yes, this applies to healthcare as well, but of you think it through them you will realize that the lack of government licensure does not mean a lack of certification. An absence of government mandated licensure will mean the market will provide more robust third party certifications for healthcare professionals. It would not be the chaos you envision, the market will provide.

    Adding the poll right now. Answers will be yes, no and I don't know.

    Look at it like this...

    If Joe can't get a job and doesn't have the means to start his own business... what is he going to do? What's his wife and kids gonna do?

    They're not going away. They're not going to lay down in some quiet corner and politely die so the rest of society doesn't have to bother with them.


    So...

    Do you want Joe working a job, drawing Welfare, or stealing for a living? Pick one.

    I dunno, call him and see if he owns a lawnmower. If not, he's gonna have a hard time buying one without a job, considering that the mowers used by commercial landscapers these days cost thousands of dollars.
