“Let the people decide” is the theme – the building trades want Michigan voters, not the state Legislature – to ultimately decide on whether the Michigan Prevailing Wage Act is retained. If a petition drive completed this year has enough valid signatures, prevailing wage repeal legislation will be sent to the state Legislature in January for a vote. If there are a majority of yes votes in the state House and Senate, the prevailing wage law is repealed. If there are a majority of no votes in either chamber, it means the prevailing wage repeal question goes before Michigan voters next November – and polls show the law is supported by the public.
