Website offers resource for prevailing wage support
Posted by on

In California, the ABC has been pushing cities to drop prevailing wage requirements on municipally funded jobs. In response to this push, a web-based resource was created for elected officials, UBC members and the public, illustrating the benefits of prevailing wage. The website - SmartCitiesPrevail.org - educates the public, news media and decision makers within city governments about how prevailing wages paid on public projects benefit Californians by preserving quality local jobs for working families.

The site contains some great resources including statistics, facts/myths about prevailing wage, and links to research and case studies collected from cities and states that have kept or eliminated prevailing wage. The site also offers useful tools and downloads, including a prevailing wage fact sheet.
