RE: COVID-19 Virus

At this early stage of the pandemic in North America every segment of our economy is faced with balancing how to conduct business while also preserving the health and safety of our workers.

Take Action

Why are Oregon building trades workers paid the area prevailing wage when the state spends money on construction, but not when the state funds construction via tax subsidies?  HB 2194  and SB 291 would expand the prevailing rate requirement to include public works funded via tax credits or tax abatements.
