2011 Prevailing Wage Legislation

Prevailing wage legislation was introduced in 27 states during the 2011 legislative session and enacted in 11 of those states.  Federal law requires payment of prevailing wages on public works projects. The Federal Davis-Bacon Act requires that prevailing wages be paid on federally-funded public works projects, such as construction, repair or alteration of public buildings, or construction of public roads or bridges.  The federal law sets a minimum threshold of $2,000, meaning if a public works contract is for an amount in excess of $2,000, then prevailing wages must be paid.  The law covers only construction workers in specific types of occupations.  The prevailing wage is determined by the U.S. Dept. of Labor through surveys of wages paid in those occupations in surrounding areas.

In addition, some states have adopted their own versions of prevailing wages, often called “Little Davis-Bacon” laws, to set threshold requirements for payment of prevailing wages on state-funded public works projects.  Again, the laws apply only to publicly-funded construction projects, such as roads or public buildings and would only apply to construction workers, and only if the contract was in excess of the state’s established threshold.
