Prevailing Wage Update

prevailing wageOn September 30, 2015, WorkForce WV released new prevailing wage rates to the Secretary of State. The new rates are the result of an impressively high response to a survey that was conducted earlier this year to find out what contractors are paying for construction labor.  The rates are in effect immediately with no need for approval from anyone, although there is a 3-step appeal process available for anyone that wishes to file within a 15-day period from the date the rates were released.  The new rates, which can be found on the Secretary of State’s website, will be in effect for the remainder of this year, as well as all of 2016, barring any intervention from the 2016 WV Legislative process.
