A prevailing wage is the median wage paid to workers in a specified locality. Prevailing wage may include both wages and benefits. It encompasses the compensation for a worker given for performed labor.....

Does that makes sense or should I draw you a picture.

Glad to hear you're back on your feet too. Must have been an interesting month there.

Don't feel bad Jr. I was going to ask the same thing about the prevailing wage. I was not exactly sure what that meant either.

While not a requirement on private work, pretty much all Governmental work requires that prevailing wage be paid to workers directly involved in a project.
