When contractors want to build the best in the least amount of time, they have to hire the best. Even if it costs you more on the front end, you make it up in added productivity and by not having to make costly fixes on the back end.
This year, we are celebrating the 86th year that paying the prevailing wage has been the law when federal dollars are used to build dams, freeways, hospitals, bridges, courthouses and the like. This is also the 80th year the law has been on the books in California, for the same types of public infrastructure projects.
Unfortunately, some builders and contractors are fighting to kill the prevailing wage. We know that greed is their reason.
