A buddy and I went out last night for a beer and met up with some of his friends at the bar. One of his friends is a licensed general contractor who I have met many times before and at one point he even offered me a job as a site supervisor. Well we all got to talking about work etc when this guy tells me that I shouldn't have gone and gotten my own license because I could have just used his. Evidently he "leases" his number out to guys for anywhere between $500 and a $1000 depending on how big the job is. This is so they can do jobs/pull permits for more than the $500 limit CA has in place and he makes a nice little chunk of $. I guess this is how his "site supervisors" work. I'm curious to know how legal or illegal this is and how the hell it would work???
