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.
