Michigan's Prevailing Wage

Michigan has had prevailing wage requirements since the Prevailing Wage Act was passed in 1965. There were two oft-mentioned reasons why this act was passed. Number one was to ensure that skilled Michigan workers would be paid a sufficient and competitive wage when working on public construction sites. Second was to ensure that contractors would not have an incentive to import unskilled or low-skilled workers who were willing to work for less than the standard wage (Michigan Prevailing Wage Act Purpose and History).
