Mission License: Press Release
February 19, 2019
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MissionLICENSE Launches to Reduce Barriers to Individual Employment and Change the Conversation about Occupational Licensing
MissionLICENSE (missionlicense.com) launches today to encourage freedom to work, reduce barriers to employment, and reform occupational licensing laws. More than 25 percent of U.S. workers now require a license to practice their professions, compared with only 5 percent who needed a license in the 1950s.
As military spouses and licensed professionals, our mobile lives mean we have experienced the personal and financial disruption caused by overly burdensome licensing requirements. Subject to relocations every two to three years, we have moved across state lines more times than we can count, invested thousands of dollars in relicensing and job hunting, and struggled to navigate complex and repetitive licensing schemes.
Through our own experiences, we developed a passion for supporting others dealing with licensing frustrations. We saw first-hand how licensing schemes lacked clarity or common sense, and primarily serve those already licensed, not the greater public good.
We put our passion to work, advising other professionals, building non-profit programs, and campaigning for regulatory changes. With decades of experience between us, we are committed to advocating for common sense occupational licensing reform and helping other professionals overcome licensing hurdles.
Our services include:
Individual counseling on licensing applications or transfers;
Legislative and regulatory affairs; and
Workforce solutions for businesses.
MissionLICENSE offers affordable, individualized support for working professionals while also working with employers and governing bodies to modernize our country’s licensing guidelines. Visit missionlicense.com to learn more and sign up for updates.
