Prevailing Wage

Prevailing wage laws require that non-union workers on publicly-funded projects get the same fair pay as union workers. These laws help ensure that taxpayer dollars spent on these projects put money back in the pockets of middle class families and local communities—not corporate CEOs. That’s good for union members and non-union members alike, and for the economy. Corporate interests and their advocates oppose prevailing wage policies because they want to cut workers’ paychecks and pocket the pay-cuts as profits. In fact, when corporations block prevailing wage laws they destroy jobs and cost taxpayers millions of dollars. Studies of the prevailing wage laws in Wisconsin and Missouri show that the loss of income to communities far outweighs any potential savings from wage cuts.
