Prevailing Wage Ban All Gain No Pain — President Trump minutes ago signed significant reforms that he points out will significantly improve our health care system while costing the taxpayer nothing.
Sort of like what would happen if Pennsylvania repealed its prevailing wage law.
The 1961 law requires labor cost to be be paid at a rate set by the state for most public construction projects.
It is estimated to increase the cost of these projects by 20 percent.
In other words, a new high school costing $150 million under the prevailing wage law would cost $120 million without it. In other words all gain and no pain just by crossing out some words on a piece of paper.
Are you listening Springfield residents? Alex Charlton? Tom McGarrigle?
