Apprenticeship law for state ferries is unnecessary
Eliminate Washington state ferry monopoly
An editorial opposes anti-competitive laws, like the law requiring 15 percent of the work done on ferries be by apprentices [“Ferry system should scrap apprenticeship law,” Opinion, March 12], but fails to see the larger problem, the state ferry monopoly itself.
Why support repealing anti-competitive laws in the construction of ferries, without also opposing the anti-competitive laws granting the state a monopoly in running the ferries?
Let the state have some real competition by cracking open its legal monopoly on ferry service.
