Editorial: From Sheet Metal Workers Local 19
In an attempt to increase the prevailing wage threshold, which could open the door to a further break down and even dismantlement of the prevailing wage laws in PA that protect working families, the PA House Labor and Industry Committee will be holding 3 public hearing on the House Bill in question.
All Union Members, Families and Supporters are encouraged to attend these meetings and call your State Rep and demand that they oppose House Bill 796 and ANY increase in the Prevailing Wage Threshold!!!
