How does a 50 percent pay cut feel?
For construction workers that’s a very real threat, as the U.S. Department of Labor considers changing how it formulates Davis-Bacon prevailing wages.
For background, the 1931 Davis-Bacon Act requires that any federally funded construction projects pay the “prevailing wage” for that county.
As Labor Day comes, many will enjoy firing up the grills, a cold one and perhaps a day of fishing or the kids enjoying the pool. Enjoy it – it is well deserved.
It is well deserved because we Americans are a hard-working people. Many don’t take their full vacation allocation and thanks to cell phones, sometimes we never escape work.
