WHAT IS PREVAILING WAGE?
- Prevailing Wage is the wage and benefit rate created in a given geographic area that must be met on publicly funded construction projects. It is based on reports filed by contractors on real work performed on private-sector projects.
- It serves as a wage floor to ensure a level playing field so local contractors can provide a highly skilled, well-trained workforce and can compete fairly against each other for publicly funded projects. In turn, projects are on budget, on time, and the best value for taxpayers.
WHY SHOULD WE CARE?
- Repealing or gutting prevailing wage law will drive down your wage regardless of whether you work on publicly or privately funded construction projects.
- Adverse changes or repeal of prevailing wage hurts our contractors and their ability to compete and win bids on public work; current law requires projects to be awarded to the lowest bidder. If our contractors can no longer win bids, we won’t have jobs.
It is imperative that we let our legislators know that their constituents are opposed to any changes or Repeal to this law.
Let your Legislators know why Repealing Prevailing wage or making any changes to the current law is bad for your family and our economy.
