BILL Education Benefits to Supplement Your Income NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED – Earn While You Learn BENEFITS PACKAGE – Medical, Retirement and Pension Taxpayer money should support skilled workers, not greedy contractors. The Davis-Bacon Act requires that workers on government funded projects be paid equal to local prevailing wages for similar work so tax dollars aren’t used to undercut workers’ pay. Repealing Davis-Bacon means more workplace injuries and fatalities. Untrained, low-paid workers mean unsafe working conditions, which lead to more injuries and fatalities. epi.org/publication/bp215 The federal government sets prevailing wage rates, not unions. The prevailing wage rate is determined by a survey of all local construction wages conducted by the US Department of Labor. Prevailing wage does not raise the cost of construction. Workers paid a decent wage are more productive. Studies show that cuts in wages can actually raise the cost of construction projects. faircontracting.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Wage differential-method-critique-Duncan-2016-1.pdf 24 INTERNATIONAL OPERATING ENGINEER Serve Your Country Secure Your Future www.helmetstohardhats.org Tell your Members of Congress to oppose any efforts to weaken the Davis-Bacon Act.
