Prevailing Wage/Davis-Bacon

The Davis-Bacon Act (DBA), passed into law in 1931, requires that contractors must pay no less than the prevailing wage on publicly funded construction projects. The DBA also: encourages fair market competition by ensuring that law-abiding contractors, union and non-union alike, can bid competitively for work; increases worker productivity by encouraging investment in training; protects communities and workers from allowing out-of-area contractors to underbid local wage levels, or the “prevailing wage; and helps to build a healthy middle class.
