    “In 24 states, hair braiders need more training than emergency medical technicians. Completing the necessary coursework in one of these 24 states can cost upwards of $20,000 and requires up to 2,100 hours of training. By comparison, EMTs need, on average, about 140 hours for their licenses.” https://www.forbes.com/sites/instituteforjustice/2015/01/29/hair-braiding-and-occupational-licensing/
