Family-supporting jobs with good wages are under attack in Wisconsin. Republicans have introduced a bill to repeal Wisconsin’s long-standing Prevailing Wage laws. After publicly saying they didn’t have the votes to repeal Wisconsin’s Prevailing Wage and would instead slip changes into the budget – the Senate Committee on Labor and Government Reform has scheduled a public hearing for Prevailing Wage this Tuesday, May 5, from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in room 411 South.
We need you there! Come testify in support of prevailing wage.
Prevailing wage is the wage set for workers on publicly-funded construction projects. Prevailing wage serves as a wage floor and ensures a level playing field for workers and Wisconsin contractors alike.
Prevailing wage works for Wisconsin; it makes sure construction projects are top-quality by using highly-skilled, well-trained workers to complete projects on time and on budget. Prevailing wage creates value through good wages for workers, stability for contractors and safe buildings for citizens. Protecting prevailing wage laws are essential for safe communities and strong families.
Then, make your voice heard; testify at the public hearing Tuesday, May 5, at the Capitol in room 411 South.
Meddling with Wisconsin’s prevailing wage is bad news for Wisconsinites. Wisconsin workers are the backbone of the economy. We all deserve safe jobs with family-supporting wages.
