In Romania, apparently.

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — Romania has changed its labor laws to officially recognize witchcraft as a profession, prompting one self-described witch to threaten retaliation.

The move, which went into effect Saturday, is part of the government’s drive to crack down on widespread tax evasion in a country that is in recession.

In addition to witches, astrologists, embalmers, valets and driving instructors are now considered by labor law to be working real jobs, making it harder for them to avoid income tax.

For months the measure had been debated, protested by witches and mocked by the media.

On Saturday, a witch called Bratara told Realitate.net, the website of a top TV station, that she plans to cast a spell using black pepper and yeast to create discord in the government.

Silly Romanian witches.  They should know that black pepper and yeast are ineffective to create governmental discord.

Sea salt and Grey Poupon mustard is the ticket.

Seriously, I think there should be a Guild of Romanian Witches, Astrologists, Embalmers, Valets and Driving Instructors.™  People working real jobs have to stick together.

From Ace’s place.
