Prevailing Wage

Enacted by the U.S. Congress in 1931, the Davis-Bacon Act has been vital in protecting prevailing wages on federal projects in local areas and promoting high standards for the good of construction workers and their communities.
State prevailing wage laws (also known as “little Davis-Bacon acts) provide similar protections on state funded projects.
