IJ Stirkes Again: Texas Eyebrow Threaders File Lawsuit Against State Board

December 8th, 2009

The Institute for Justice has filed yet another suit challenging occupational licensing schemes:

Should Texas entrepreneurs have to pay $20,000 to obtain up to 1,500 hours of instruction in a school that does not even teach their trade?

That is the question the Institute for Justice seeks to answer in a lawsuit filed today on behalf of eight Texas eyebrow-threading entrepreneurs.  The suit challenges Texas’ threading-licensing scheme as a violation of the constitutional right to earn an honest living.
