No special education or experience is required, but one must pay $25 per year for the license. Mary was not aware of this, so she did not obtain a license. When her boss found out about this, he refused to pay Mary for the two weeks of work that she had done. Mary sues. what results?
a. because this type of licensing is unconstitutional, Mary can collect her wages
b. because this is an illegal contract, the ocurts will enforce it
c. because Mary violated a regulatory statue, the contract is illegal
d. because thisis a revenue raising stature, Mary can collect her wages
