Prevailing Wage

Prevailing wage is a local-market minimum wage for skilled construction work on publicly-funded projects – including roads, bridges, public transit, utilities, water lines, pipelines, schools, libraries, and public buildings. Prevailing wage standards promote a level playing field, reflect local labor markets, support training programs, and encourage safe and productive workers. ILEPI’s research focuses on the impact of prevailing wage laws on the overall economy, businesses, workers, and taxpayers.
