Prevailing Wage

Prevailing Wage Builds Wisconsin

Prevailing wages are established by the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development by a survey of contractors for each trade, in every county, for five different types of projects.

What projects are covered by Prevailing Wage?

  • All federal projects with a contract value at or above $2,000.00.

  • Wisconsin public works projects where a single trade completes 85% or more of the work and the contract is for $48,000.00 or more.

  • Wisconsin public works that involved multi-trade contracts where the project is $100,000.00 or more.

BEST DEAL FOR TAX PAYERS

Prevailing Wage saves tax payers money by completing projects on time, without costly mistakes and produces a product that lasts longer with less maintenance. (1)

SAFER FOR WORKERS

Prevailing Wage ensures that trained workers are on the job with proper equipment and the safest possible conditions considering the already dangerous nature of major construction projects. (1)

GOOD FOR LOCAL BUSINESS

Workers on Prevailing Wage projects earn 1% more which goes right into the local economy where workers come from and live. (2)
