Why is California Jailing Landscapers? Don't Cops Have Better Things to Do?!



California suffers from one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation and the state is under court order to release 10,000 inmates, yet state agents are jailing people who manage to find home-improvement work. After placing ads on Craigslist, California State License Board investigators go undercover posing as homeowners, when landscapers, painters, and other contractors show up, the agents give them the "To Catch a Predator" treatment.

CSLB recently announced that agents from the Statewide Investigative Fraud Team (otherwise known by the tough-sounding acronym SWIFT) had completed operation "California Blitz." SWIFTers busted 79 perps for contracting without a license, and if convicted, they could face $5,000 in fines and up to six months in jail. Fifty-two face additional fines for illegal advertising, and thirteen may be charged with requesting an excessive down payment, which can result in 60 days in jail and/or up to $10,000 in fines. SWIFT routinely conducts large-scale sting operations and proudly posts footage of the busts online. And since California is the nation's second-most extensively and onerously licensed state (as noted by an Institute for Justice report), agents always have plenty of targets.

"CSLB and its partners in law enforcement are serious about enforcing California's consumer protection laws," says says CSLB Registrar Steve Sands. "Unlicensed, illegal activity that puts homeowners at risk and legitimate contractors at a competitive disadvantage will not be tolerated."

97119 If the question is 'don't they have better things to do?' then the answer is 'of course not'. Cops do not think like normal people. Cops love authority and any excuse to use it is all the excuse they need.

208102 absolutely ridiculous. We need a free market economy. For these type of jobs, casual labor, let the "buyer beware", no need for government intervention. The costs of policing this are more than any potential harm. No wonder the under employment is so high! Free the economy and see it prosper!

SWIFT = Statewide Investigative Fraud Team.... If you audit the acronym / words, objectively, you'll find that the con is in plain view.

A $5,000 fine for working? Or, pay the state for licensing? Oh look, the state wins in either case.

Also, the acronym: SWIFT, has various meanings; which I would consider, while reading this article.
