In Georgia, barbers are among the professionals that need licenses from state-approved boards in order to ply their trade — but they can be denied credentials due to past criminal convictions, even those that have nothing to do with the job. There's a growing movement to dismantle this barrier to employment through fair chance licensing reforms. (Photo of an Atlanta barbershop by B.C. Lorio via Flickr.)
