Prevailing Wage Laws in MInnesota

The National Alliance for Fair Contracting (NAFC) has been providing a forum in the construction industry for those interested in fair, competitive contracting. NAFC is a labor-management organization that promotes a “level playing field” through compliance with all applicable laws in public construction. When responsible contractors bid and perform public construction projects, the taxpayer gets a high quality project performed by contractors who comply with the laws of the land.

The NAFC has also has complied a very thorough list of Prevailing Wage rules for the states which have such standards. The list below has a number of fairly common questions about the Prevailing Wage Law in Minnesota. These include the definition of public works or related projects, what is included in the calculation of wage rates and provisions which discuss apprentices. Here is the NAFO list.
