Prevailing Wage Doesn't Make it to the House Floor

February 14, 2012 J

Prevailing wage, the archaic law of the land in Pennsylvania, nearly had a chance of reform today as Republicans scrambled to ensure they had the votes necessary to pass two common sense bills. Much to the dismay of businesses and opponents of prevailing wage the Republican House majority was unable to move the union bought Republicans into the fold.

Sadly, many conservatives believed that because Pennsylvania elected a Republican Governor, Republican Senate and Republican House that would indeed see much needed reforms in the Commonwealth. Today was a prime example of why this is not going to happen when some of these “Republicans” are bought and paid for by the unions.

We certainly hope these reform bills will see the light of day sometime soon. In the meantime you may want to contact the Republicans in the Southeast and some of your Democrat representatives.
