Feedback at 5:00: Construction Worker Wage Law Repeal
The Republican controlled Senate in Lansing voted to repeal a 50-year-old state law today.
The law requires better pay and benefits for construction workers on state financed building projects.
It now goes to the House.
But it has a lot of people divided.
Those in favor say Michigan is one of six states to base prevailing wages on local collective bargaining agreements, and repealing the law would save a lot of money.
Those against it say workers on government projects deserve fair pay.
And lower pay could mean less-quality work.
Tonight, we want to know what you think.
