Assemblyman Brent Jones, R-Las Vegas, said the measure “opens up the free market. It gets the most bang for our buck.”
Nevada law now requires the prevailing wage be paid on government projects. The prevailing wage for construction workers ranges from $40 to $50 an hour. http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2015/mar/05/bill-suspending-prevailing-wage-passes-assembly/
There should be no reason why there should be a prevailing wage should be law in the first place. The prevailing wage should be the wage the employer and employee can work out. The more experienced and valuable worker will still see higher wages as someone who does not have the experience.
All the prevailing wage does is give gifts to the unions and it sucks for the taxpayer who have to foot the bill.
