Occupational Licensing

Licensing Protections for Workers

Over 1,000 occupations require a license to work. But states can remove workers’ occupational licenses if they fall behind in paying their student loans. When these licenses are removed or suspended, it can lead to further loan debt, job loss, and government dependency. Hardworking Americans should not have their jobs or their livelihoods taken from them while they work to pay off their student loans.
