License required by 25 states
91st most burdensome licensing requirements
73rd most widely and onerously licensed occupation
Twenty-five states require a license of those who weigh bulk commodities for a living. Licensing requirements are somewhat consistent across states, with no states requiring any education or experience. In addition, most states (21) require fees of $75 or less, though Texas requires $500. On average, aspiring weighers must pay a fee of $62—the 91st most burdensome requirements of the 102 occupations studied here. However, because half of states license it, the occupation ranks as the 73rd most widely and onerously licensed.
