COST TO DO BUSINESS INCREASES AS SENATE FINDS YET ANOTHER WAY TO DESTROY SMALL BUSINESS AND KILL JOBSNFIB Calls Upon Lawmakers to Focus on Education and Job Training and Stay Out of Day to Day Operations of Employers
Prevailing Wage MandateFight against legislation to extend the costly prevailing wage mandate to private construction projects. While Connecticut’s prevailing wage law makes public construction bidding more complicated for small contractors, it also makes these projects more costly for taxpayers. Some advocates are trying to expand the state’s prevailing wage law to private projects as well. NFIB will stand opposed to any further expansion of the prevailing wage mandate, but especially against any intrusion into the private sector.
