do Technicians favor mandatory technician licensing?

VehicleServicePros  has invited their readers (mostly technicians) to weigh in on mandatory technician licensing and/or government-administered certification. Readers can cast their vote online.

The poll is located at the bottom right of the main Vehicle Service Pros website. Vehicle Service Pros  reports the results of this reader poll dynamically.

The current numbers speak for themselves, but is the statement being made by technicians the best one for the industry or the profession?
