Vos says prevailing wage hearing could derail reform

MADISON - Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says efforts to take up prevailing wage repeal could hinder attempts to reform the program.

A Wisconsin state Assembly Labor Committee has scheduled a public hearing and vote Wednesday on a bill to repeal the prevailing wage.

Vos says there isn't enough support in the Republican-controlled Legislature for a full repeal of the law that that requires construction workers on certain government projects be paid wages equivalent to what they would earn working on other projects in the area.
