March 28, at 8:00 AM in Ways & Means, Room 200 MN State Office Building

MN State CapitolRep. Scott’s bill (HF 1476) changing the Mode to the Mean and allowing overtime only after 40 hours total in any 7-day period will be heard.

This is the bad Associated Building Contractors bill.

Business Managers and organizers are trying to get as many people as possible to attend. 49ers need to show our opposition to this yet again by turning out as many members as we possibly can on Wednesday morning.

Yes, it’s short notice – the sponsors would prefer we stay home and let them work without expressing our outrage about cutting our wages.

Background on Prevailing Wage changes is informative, but if you want to argue against it this discussion of why the changes limit the outcomes without saving money is probably the best quick read around.
