Prevailing wage is the hourly wage paid to the majority of workers, laborers, and mechanics in the largest city in each county. AB 199 will ensure that workers on construction projects that use public money would be paid the prevailing wage. This provides equity and helps the many construction workers who contribute to California’s rapid development be compensated fairly for their labor. (This bill is now law.)
