The prevailing wage law should not have the amount raised. It should like more and more states kill it completely. I believe Governor Ridge tried but several Republicans voted with the labor unions because they put themselves to protect their job ahead of the state's needs.
This is one of the four reasons why Pennsylvania is in the bottom five of all 50 states for employment progress. Don't modify a major negative law in Pennsylvania to make it slightly less bad. Kill it completely and work on improving the three other points that Williamsport's former mayor spoke about when he was in state government.
