nail salon The New York State Assembly has passed a bill  clamping down on the exploitation of unlicensed nail salon workers.

According to Time Magazine, the bill will lower the cost of a qualifying nail salon exam and allow workers to legally continue to work in a salon while preparing for a final licensing exam.

“This critical legislation removes barriers to obtaining licenses for thousands of nail salon workers in New York, many of whom are Asian American immigrant women,”said Miriam Yeung, Executive Director of the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum.
