The word "locals" can mean many things. For instance if you Google the word locals you won't find a reference to unions until the 12 or 13th listing. Not everyone would think of unions when you just throw out the word locals at them Iceman, but whatever. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
And, "prevailing wages" simply means the general prevailing rate of pay for regular, holiday and overtime wages to be paid to each craftsmen, mechanic, teamster, laborer or other type of worker performing work on public works projects when state or municipal funds are used in a given area, which by the way Iceman are set by the federal government that you so despise but yet reap the benefits from. (You really don't believe that if not for unions, you would have made/or are making anything close to the pay you would get otherwise working for the fossil fuels industry, do you? ..... Anyhow, from what i've been able to find on this, its been only lately that the term prevailing wages has become synonymous with union wages, somewhat erroneously, since it includes at times, .. non-union work. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Maybe your the one that should brush up on your own lingo, Iceman. While you fantasize about your empty suit Romney being president of Utah! ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Robert, This is just one more in the long list of her lies! Recently she informed us all "her" employees were being paid prevailing wages yet didn't even know what locals were in her jurisdiction...PREMIUM WAGES, but they just don't know doodly squat. as she knows so much more than me about the oil and gas industry ( bet she is not even smart enough to know how to run a self service gas pump) Please refer all pertinent questions about the industry to a dufus that mows lawns!!
Prevailing wage is the Union wage in the area, so that made you a liar, you made it up so deal with your fantasy!
