ACTIVIST ALERT: Today, June 28, 2013 two prevailing wage bills HB 655 and HB 796 are scheduled to be considered. While these bills don’t go far enough, they are a step in the right direction of allowing public works dollars to go to the public works projects they were designed to and not to artificially bloated salaries.
Unfortunately, some of the Southeast members of the Republican caucus are listening to the union bosses who would prefer the prevailing wage laws stay stuck in the 1960s and are undecided about how they will vote. Please call all Republican members of the Berks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Bucks delegation and ask them to SUPPORT HB 655 and 796. Then pass this information on to your friends and ask them to do the same.
