Companies that contract with the government on public works projects are required to pay their employees what is called the prevailing wage. The prevailing wage is more than the minimum wage and varies depending on the type of work involved and where the work takes place. When contractors, subcontractors or other companies engaged in public works projects fail to pay the prevailing wage, they must be held accountable.
