Labor Wins ‘Prevailing Wages’ in Stimulus

Though stymied on the Employee Free Choice Act, which would make it easier for workers to form unions, organized labor is about to claim a big consolation prize: the massive application of a law guaranteeing “prevailing wages” for hundreds of thousands of construction workers hired under President Obama’s economic stimulus program.

Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood is now preparing guidelines that will expand the scope of the 1931 Davis-Bacon Act, according to a department spokesperson.

“In some cases, the Davis-Bacon prevailing wage provisions will apply to federal construction contracts in the same manner as they currently apply,” said spokesperson Dolline Hatchett in an email. “In other instances, the prevailing wage provisions will apply to certain projects that may not have been subject to the Davis-Bacon provisions in the past.”

LaHood’s action will put a floor under wages paid for the more than 678,000 construction jobs (pdf) that the White House estimates will be created by the end of 2010. It also marks a sharp reversal of U.S. policy on public works projects under President Bush, who in September 2005 suspended Davis-Bacon in the Gulf States after Hurricane Katrina.

“This is good news for American workers,” said Tom Owens, director of communications for the Building Construction Trades Department of the AFL-CIO . “Everything in the stimulus program is covered. Congress was very clear about prevailing wages.”

Marc Freedman, director of labor law policy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, calls the Davis-Bacon standards “complicated and counterproductive” but conceded opponents have limited means to fight the measure because the stimulus legislation is so explicit.

The legislation, approved by Congress and signed by President Obama last month, mandates that all “laborers and mechanics” on projects “funded directly by or assisted in whole or in part” by the stimulus program have to be paid at least as much workers on similar projects in the same area, as determined by the Department of Labor. (pdf)

With $49.3 billion for transportation construction, $5 billion for home weatherization projects, and billions for other building projects, the application of Davis-Bacon standards will have rare historical impact.

“This is huge,” said Ross Eisenbray, vice president of the Economic Policy Institute, a pro-labor think tank in Washington. “The only uses of Davis-Bacon comparable to the stimulus bill are the Defense Highway Act of 1956 which created the interstate highway system and the New Deal programs of the 1930s.”

The stimulus “is the perfect example of why you need Davis-Bacon,” Eisenbray said. “If you didn’t have it, the contractors bidding for all this federal money could undercut prevailing wages in any given area by 20-30 percent, and they could get the contract and bring down wages in that area.”

The 1931 law, written by Sen. James Davis (R-Pa.), who had served as secretary of labor in the 1920s, and Rep. Robert Bacon (R-N.Y.), guaranteed “prevailing wages” as a way of protecting workers in a time of rapidly growing unemployment and government involvement in the economy. It was signed into law by President Herbert Hoover and has rankled free-market conservatives ever since.

Davis-Bacon relies on government-issued tables (available here) that tells employers in each of the 50 states, plus Washington, exactly what they must pay workers in four categories of federally funded construction–“building,” “heavy,” “highway” and “residential”—that are also carefully defined. The Wage and Hour Division of the Labor Department, determines who gets what.

The standards also include benefits in its definition of “prevailing wages,” giving local unions indirect influence over non-union pay. In Washington, for example, residential electricians on federal projects must be paid at least $16.10 per hour plus $3.10 an hour in benefits, according to the law. In Los Angeles, a residential electrician need only be paid $7.73 an hour under Davis-Bacon, and no benefits.

Contrary to popular belief, and a recent Fox News report, Davis-Bacon does not require the payment of union wages.

Conservative critics say the law will hinder the goals of the stimulus program.

“By inflating the cost of labor, Davis-Bacon means that less work will get done and less energy gets saveed” says James Sherk, a labor analyst at the conservative think tank, Heritage Foundation.

Despite efforts to repeal the law over the years through legislation introduced by Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) or lawsuits brought by conservative-leaning groups, the law has remained politically popular. In November 2005 pro-labor Republicans, including LaHood, pressured President Bush into reinstating Davis-Bacon wages for Katrina reconstruction projects.

The Davis-Bacon standards are not controversial in the transportation construction business, according to Jack Basso, director of program finance management for the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials. “It has been pretty much factored into the cost of doing business,” he said. Basso said the law’s provisions will cover virtually all workers paid by the $49.3 billion stimulus money allocated to highway, aviation and public transportation projects.

More novel is the expected application of Davis-Bacon to the the Department of Energy’s Weatherization Assistance Program, which pays non-profits and local government to implement energy efficiency measures in low-income households. The $5 billion for weatherization stimulus spending is expected to create 87,000 jobs nationwide, according to the energy department.

In 2004, the Bush administration rejected the idea of paying Davis-Bacon wages for work done under the weatherization program. In a Powerpoint presentation found on the agency’s Web site, two Bush officials declared the weatherization program was “exempt from all provisions ” of Davis-Bacon. Earlier this month, director of the weatherization program, Gil Sperling, reversed that decision with a provisional memo that is subject to LaHood’s guidance.

“The last thing we want to see is weatherization jobs turning into a dead-end occupation where somebody caulks windows for nine bucks an hour and then is out of work,” said the AFL-CIO’s Owens. “We want green jobs to be good jobs, and prevailing wages help.”

Freedman of the Chamber of Commerce predicts administrative waste, saying the administration is “expecting organizations that have never administered Davis-Bacon to enforce it.”

One issue that LaHood will have to clarify, said EPI’s Eisenbray, is how the law applies to educational spending in the stimulus bill.

“There is stimulus money going to local education agencies that doesn’t really have any strings attached to it,” he said. “If those agencies use that money for school repairs or school construction, Davis-Bacon will be an issue. I would expect the secretary to say if the money comes from the Recovery and Reinvestment Act, you have to pay prevailing wages.”

In an interview with Roll Call last month, LaHood spoke positively of the law, saying “These are very skilled people that are going to be building roads and bridges, and Davis-Bacon provides an opportunity for them to be compensated in a way that reflects the kind of professionalism they bring to the job.”

Critics of Davis-Bacon have low expectations of LaHood. “[LaHood's] not a conservative on labor issues,” Sherk said.

Freedman said, “If the department issues a proposed regulation, not just a guidance, then we will be involved in commenting. But the law is pretty clear about ‘This is what thou shalt do.’ It remains to be seen if there’s any flexibility.”

The only consolation for labor’s opponents is that LaHood has delayed his decision. Last week, a spokesperson said he would issue the guidance within the week. On Thursday his office withdrew that schedule in favor of a statement that said he is still preparing the guidance.

How long did it take to find that cheap of rate??? Now if you want to talk about what Fox was talking about try looking up places like Lake County Illinois where and electrician under Davis Bacon gets paid almost triple what a non-union electrician does!
LAKE COUNTY

Rates Fringes

ELECTRICIAN
Building & Residential……$ 36.68 23.27 Yup thats almost $60 per hour than add 10% overhead and 10% profit.

Thats $75 per hour! hmm wonder what the Union scale is?

You could employ 2 non-union electricians for the same, that helps twice as many people! Just another thanks for the vote pay=off IMHO That doesn't even include the paper work and time sheets and questionares. I am just trying to make sure my tax dollar are not used to pay overcharging union bloodsuckers and can help as many people as possible. Was that the cheapest county you guys could find???

You won't let a man use a piece of paper to say I want to join a union. You don't have the courage to say I am voting in favor of the employer who doesn't want unions. You hide behind the most worm holed tiny fig leaf saying you are protecting the secret ballot. What a bunch of hypocrites. You are fortunate that the public has a short memory. You are fortunate that the news industry continually bombards us with new and more outrageous problems.

Unions made the middle class after WWII. Without them all you hammer swinging macho types would be living in an economic ghetto. It doesn't matter whether you or your father was not union you benefited from the unions that either raised the wages and conditions in your industry, or in other areas such as lobbying for a higher minimum wage.

Next, not having learned your lesson you will want a “War on labor”. Sheesh. Greedy. Selfish. Limbaughish. Shame.

While the Davis-Bacon Act may not require the use of union rates, those are the wages applied in more than 80% of all worker classifications. In Pennsylvania, prevailing wages are more than 37% higher than market rates. This adds over 16% to the total cost of every public construction project in the state. Nonunion labor is responsible for the vast majority of residential and commercial construction projects. The reason is because the supposed better quality of union labor is not worth the added cost. If nonunion labor can be trusted to build the homes in which children live, then they can be trusted to build their schools, too.

Labor unions are collective bargaining agents who assure that everyone doing the same job gets the same pay, and therefore they prevent lower pay for women. I support “Hawaiian style” altogether — and I'll add that I;'m very tired of the attacks on teachers' unions by people who taught to read and write by women in schools. It's un-American. Thanks, Jefferson Morley, for tracking important legislation that doesn't get the immediate media soundbite.

Too bad teachers not fortunate enough to work in Right-to-Work states are forced to be members of unions whether they want to or not. My high school economics teacher (best teacher I ever had) hated unions and wished she didn't have to be in one.

But, don't mind that…it's not like teachers lobby the government like Big Oil or other special interest groups, right?

Actually….the two largest teachers unions spent more money lobbying the government last year than the top 5 oil companies combined.

2 non-union electricians and neither one of them with the proper training to insure that the wiring in your home is installed in a safe manner. Union apprentice training for building trades in the United States is the best in the world. Would you go to a Doctor that didnt have the proper education, or use a lawyer that did not attend law school? Probably not. Why would you want to use an untrained non-union tradesworker? Cheaper isnt always better.

Does this also mean that these projects that are funded by stimulus money and require the payment of “prevailing wages” also require the contractors to submit certified payroll reports as part of compliance with Davis-Bacon laws?

Don't assume all union workers are well trained and all non-union workers are not. Construction codes, licensing, permiting, and inspections are put in place to protect the consumer. A union card is NOT a license nor does it prove competance. Non-union construction workers account for 80 to 85% of all construction work completed. Many union contractors only survive on prevailing wage work because they simply aren't competetive in the private market place…..So all this money getting pumped into the economy, at the expense of the taxpayer (most of which are not union members) will be spent in a very inefficient way.

How are you helping people by suggesting they work for less than the area standard for their craft. These rates are based on highly qualififed electricians who are together in their demand for compensation in return for their skills. Also, with their fringe benefits, they and their families are not a burden on society, which I am sure you bitch about somewhere else on the internet.
You idiots can't have it both ways. By the way, not only am I am Union Electrician, but I am an fully trained Apprenticeship Instructor, and Union Organizer. I am fully open, what do you do? How much do you make? Where are you coming from?
