Every day, Minnesota’s highly-skilled construction workers roll up their sleeves and get to work building our great state. Thanks to Minnesota’s prevailing wage law, these men and women are able work hard for their pay at construction sites that are safe. Our prevailing wage law ensures that all blue-collar workers building our roads, bridges and infrastructure can earn good pay for a hard day’s work. But some out-of-state organizations want to lower the wages for construction workers.
Don’t let them rig Minnesota’s economy.
In neighboring states, out-of-state special interest groups have already convinced lawmakers to repeal the prevailing wage in Indiana and Wisconsin. Now these groups want to rig the system against Minnesota’s blue-collar construction workers. Repealing prevailing wage means contractors can hire cheap, out-of-state workers to take our construction jobs. It means fewer opportunities for apprenticeships and on-site training. It means fewer construction jobs for veterans who return home from active duty.
The threat is real, Minnesota.
In Minnesota, we build it right the first time. We train our workers and pay them well. We hire local ensuring our workers complete their jobs on-budget and on-time. We are being responsible with taxpayer dollars by ensuring these projects will last a lifetime while providing financial security for families across the state. That’s why prevailing wage is good for Minnesota and great for all construction workers.
Support all construction workers. Support prevailing wage in Minnesota.
