Brothers and Sisters,
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 exploit workers and cut corners on quality and safety. It lets construction companies and temporary labor agencies misclassify their workers as doing off-site work, even on the job site. It’s a free pass to exploit workers and underpay their worker’s comp taxes.
Legislators can stop this unfair loophole 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.
Pipefitters Local 537 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.
