Event Details

Michigan’s Prevailing Wage Law covers construction workers employed on state-financed or sponsored construction projects. Under this act, the Wage and Hour Division establishes wage and fringe benefit rates to be paid to construction workers on state projects12.

Here are the key points about Michigan’s prevailing wage law:

  1. Coverage: The law applies to construction workers working on projects financed or sponsored by the state of Michigan.
  2. Rate Determination: The prevailing wage rates are determined based on the region’s collective bargaining agreements. Essentially, this means that the state must pay union wages to workers currently employed on state-sponsored projects2.
  3. Repeal and Reinstatement:
