I'm in. I have been bitching about this for years. I've been inderbid on jobs and had them taken away by unlicensed mopes and I've turned them in via the "hotline". NOTHING has ever happened as a result. The CSLB takes NO action regarding this problem. Occasionally they will, as you know, set up a sting operation where they advertise a job and then bust the unlicensed guys who come and submit proposals. Wasting the time of licensed contractors in the bargain when they also show up to bid.Competing against the hordes of unlicensed hacks in advertising is OUT OF
The CSLB has NO idea how to deal with the problem due to the sheer number of
operators in every California city. Day labor fills Home Depot parking lots,
specialized posters create professional ads for these thieves and fill
electronic and print media with illegal postings.
ENOUGH! We intend to put CSLB on notice. Tackle this problem NOW, before it
becomes irreversible and our license is worth nothing. If we go out of
business, they will.
