    George Mason University: Prevailing Wage Legislation and the Continuing Significance of Race

    A study released in June 2018 by the George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School found that prevailing wage laws discriminate against minority construction workers who have been traditionally underrepresented in labor unions. By examining the Davis-Bacon Act and the original intent of the law to exclude African-American construction workers from working on federal projects, to looking at the continuing effects of prevailing wage laws and the lack of minority participation in labor unions, the authors conclude  that prevailing wage legislation has been a disaster for minority construction workers.

    Minnesota Center for Fiscal Excellence Finds Flawed and Outdated Prevailing Wage Calculation Process

    A study released by the Minnesota Center for Fiscal Excellence found that the
    prevailing wage determination process utilized by the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry leads to inaccurate wage rates on construction projects. A disproportionate 75 percent of prevailing wages reflected union rates in the period analyzed in the study, even though just 32 percent of private construction workers in Minnesota belong to a union. The authors also discovered that 72 percent of all prevailing wage rates were set using old rates, imported rates or a combination of both.
