Occupational Licensing

Helping workers start new careers and earn promotions without being forced to seek costly, time-consuming permission from the government.

Buckeye’s Priorities:

  • Remove barriers to job opportunities and career advancement when there is no threat to public safety.
  • Fight crony capitalism that erects rules and regulations to block workers from starting new careers. 
  • Analyze the impact of licensing on income growth, job creation, and economic growth.
