"The Constitution protects the right to earn an honest living without arbitrary and unreasonable government interference.But if you want to braid hair for a living in Utah, you must submit yourself to a completely irrational licensing scheme to get permission from the government before you are allowed to work. No one should have to hire a lawyer or lobbyist just to braid hair. The right to earn an honest living is an essential part of our nation’s promise of opportunity."
Note: The Institute for Justice has successfully challenged state cosmetology regulations in 7 states on behalf of hairbraiders, and has never lost a case. Hopefully, the state of Utah will be victory #8 for IJ.
