There is an amendment in the Massachusetts House of Representatives RIGHT NOW that would close the prevailing wage loophole and ensure equal pay for equal work.
The prevailing wage loophole allows companies to pay some workers much less for the exact same work depending on where they do the job, though the work is often complex and dangerous. This loophole creates opportunities for worker exploitation and wage theft and needs to be addressed.
Legislators can fix this and protect hardworking families. Please take a few minutes to tell your legislators to close the prevailing wage loophole now and ask them to sign on and actively support Amendment #231 to H. 5007.
The SMART Northeast Regional Council has been standing up against this injustice, advocating for equal pay for equal work. Join us in our efforts to close the prevailing wage loophole and provide better working conditions for all.
