Increase in fees for social work licenses

Increasing the fees for license renewal by 65% is a huge burden on professionals who are practicing in one of the most poorly compensated professions. I strongly disagree with this increase. Our reimbursement rates are being cut, salaries are stagnant, and the board is going to increase our fees by 65%? This is unfair and out of step with the real world in which practicing LCSWs are trying to make a living.
