I don’t know what the pc term for “barber” is, hair technician probably. Their association once left Billu without a last name. But they, some of them, are at the receiving end of Nevada’s bureaucracy-
Nevada doesn’t allow out-of-state barbers to transfer their licenses here, a procedure known as reciprocity, because it’s usually done along the lines of, “If you trust our barbers, we’ll trust your barbers.”
No trusting here. In Nevada, barbers must provide their records and then apply and take tests for a new license.
“I had a letter saying they had known me to be a barber for 20 years and the board said, no, they only wanted someone who knew me for the last five years,” Williamson said.
We called up … and asked … why Nevada doesn’t offer reciprocity for out-of-state barbers.
“Because we don’t, that’s just why.”
“A government of laws, and not of men,” eh?
