HB244 – More Prevailing Wage Repeal Laws

Delaware Republicans have one demand in exchange for their votes on a budget bill that will increase taxes. They want to make working families poorer by ending prevailing wage. This bill is a piece in that effort. HB244 would create a 3-year exemption for DelDOT road construction from prevailing wage requirements.

  1. Surprised they didn’t team it up with the hated “Right To Work” game. Reminder 209B that as bad, pathetic and corrupt as the Dems are the Republicans lead the charge when it comes to serving the chamber of commerce and screwing the average Delawarean.

    This bill should be called — Letting Owners Steal Wages from Workers Bill. All this does is let owners bid on projects using any wage number they want and then pay their workers well less than that. So that the difference is what gets pocketed by the owner. Delaware’s economy is not going to recover if you insist on paying its workers less.
