PROTECT DAVIS-BACON PREVAILING WAGES
The Davis-Bacon Act requires contractors to pay the wage that prevails in that local labor market. The Act ensures that bottom-feeding contractors must compete for public works contracts on a level playing field with union contractors and can’t win a public construction project by lowering workers’ wages in a never-ending race to the bottom. More importantly, the law supports the quality of life and living standards of members of the IUOE.
Anti-worker politicians in Washington are attempting to slash our wages and benefits by repealing the Davis-Bacon Act, which requires that construction workers get paid the prevailing wage on projects that receive federal support.
Representative Scott Perry (R-PA) has introduced an amendment to the House America COMPETES Act, H.R. 4521, which strips prevailing wage requirements on taxpayer-financed construction of semiconducter facilities. Contact your members of Congress today and urge them to vote against this amendment.
Engineers Action and Response Network
The nation’s infrastructure is in desperate need of repair. The American Society of Civil Engineers reports that there is a water main break every two minutes in the U.S., 43% of our public roadways are in poor or mediocre condition, and over 46,000 of the nation’s bridges are considered structurally deficient, just to name a few major infrastructure issues. Please urge Congress to pass the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act today so we can begin repairing and rebuilding America’s infrastructure.
