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.
