HOW DOES THE CALIFORNIA PREVAILING WAGE AFFECT ME?

How does the California Prevailing Wage Affect me

In California, the prevailing wage rate is the basic hourly rate paid on public works projects to a majority of workers engaged in a particular job, classification or type of work within the locality and in the nearest labor market area. Keep in mind that is only applicable if a majority of such workers are paid at a single rate.

If there is no single rate paid to a majority, then the single or modal rate being paid to the greater number of workers is prevailing.

California’s prevailing wage laws makes sure that the ability to get a public works contract is not based on paying lower wage rates than a competitor. All bidders are required to use the same wage rates when bidding on a public works project.

California law requires that not less than the general prevailing rate of per diem wages be paid to all workers employed on a public works project.
