Prevailing Wage Talking Points

Posted Date: Friday, June 19, 2015



     * * Topline Message - Construction is a tough and dangerous job and prevailing wage provides a fair wage for workers like 1ne.  Prevailing wages help to attract     qualified workers who get the job done well.

     * * Prevailing wage laws give me fair wages so I can provide for my family.

     * * Construction jobs  can be hard work.  Our season is short and that 1neans I need to work enough for my family from March through October so we can live the entire year.  The job is hard, physical labor - so 1nost of us only can work until we are 50 or 55.


     * I work in extreme weather conditions like rain, wind - and in the spring in Michigan, sometimes snow - to get the job done right.


  • * I'm proud to be a part of the middle class and think prevailing wages make sure construction workers can buy a home, a car and be part of their community.


  • * Construction jobs are hazardous and experienced workers contribute to safe job sites. Through extensive training programs, I know how to stay safe on work sites.
