Kicked Out Of Framing Job For A While, Loooong While


Post for two days with routine wobbling about my glory at CL -

https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/a...486441694.html

Well instead of customers begging me work for them for more money than I look for I get this sh

"The Department of Labor and Industry has again taken notice of your ads on Craigslist. Our Department, which is the state agency responsible for the licensing and regulation of residential building contractors in the State of Minnesota, has no record of a residential contractor license for you.

State law forbids unlicensed residential contractors from offering (or advertising) services for which a state license is required, as noted in Minn. Stat. 326B.802. In addition Minn. Stat. 326B.805 notes requirements for residential contractors and defines who is required to be licensed.

Chapter 326B of Minnesota Statutes contains the building contractor laws and may be found on the web at < www.revisor.mn.gov >. The Department of Labor & Industry also has licensing information on our web site at; <www.dli.mn.gov >

Your ad claims that you can do framing also. This is a violation of law! Our Department has NOT told you to put that information in your ad. This is your last warning."

This situation remind me of my remodeling of old big houses where I always expect some diamonds will fall at my head and only dead mouses fall at my head in 15 years or so.
So I guess out of framing for long time. I go try real estate licence for a while and it will be long while. Can be ready for retirement until come back to framing. My complain is - they allow me do framing or trim. For me framing and trim are two parts of same process. It is far easier for me to trim something that I frame. It is not two trades, it is one trade.

So you've been working without a License, in a State that has mandatory Contractor Licensing, you've been warned REPEATEDLY by the State, and you're surprised that they're FINALLY taking action?

And still you refuse to get Licensed?

Sorry, no pity here.

Warned just once, and this is second. 80% of my work is for 2 guys that have GC licence both plus 100% of my work checked by city inspectors. Never did framing without permit in my life.

Wonder what they learn in that 8 hours. I'm educated mathematician with 20 years of framing experience, minimum 8 at high end projects, and guy jump out of 8 hours school and is right away better than me in framing.

How can you afford to start your truck at those rates?

Get licensed, get insured, get a better wage.

Re: Kicked Out Of Framing Job For A While, Loooong While


Are you positive it is actually from the department of labor? Seems odd they would an exclamation point. "This is a violation of the law"
Perhaps a competitor effing with you.
Just a thought.
Why not get your license and avoid any trouble.

You obviously spent some time writing that advertisement. One thing: you say several times "references eligible". That should be "references available".

That is one wordy ad. Sounds like a compilation of all of his threads here on CT.

I gotta ask Tipi:

Why the different rates?

Different rates for different risks perhaps?

I pay (licensed, insured, bonded) helpers more than that. License gives legitimacy. Not ability or skill, but legality.

I don't have to look over my shoulder, worrying about a surprise visit from the CCB.

C'mon Tipi, get legitimate so you can raise your rates.

I read it too. At least I understood the words themselves.

Collectively, however,...... they don't make sentences.
