Help Rebuild the Middle Class: Support Prevailing Wage!

    1. Sponsored by

      Smart Cities Prevail

When employers pay prevailing wages, local construction workers get paid fairly and can support their families. This is good for our communities because it builds the middle class, improves the economy and strengthens neighborhoods. When prevailing wage standards aren’t required, it allows out-of-state companies to drive down wages to poverty levels, hurting everyone who works for a living.

Sign the petition today to ask local governments to support honest pay for honest work by upholding prevailing wage standards.

      Everyone has the right to have job that pays them enough to provide for themselves and families. That is the American Way of Life, until government officials decided to allow industries to leave the country and expoit people from third world countries. How great we are, exploiting others. Really!
