About Us

There has been a flurry of activity in the state's Capital City on the issue of prevailing wage and initiatives to repeal the state's prevailing wage law. Under current law, contracts for construction projects that are financially supported by the state must require the contractor to pay construction workers wages and benefits that are not less than the wages and benefits common in the locality where the work is to be performed.
