Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for your question. I am sorry to see you are experiencing this. Davis-Bacon Act and Related Act contractors and subcontractors must pay their laborers and mechanics employed under the contract no less than the locally prevailing wages and fringe benefits for corresponding work on similar projects in the area. Based upon what you told me. this employer practice appears illegal and you may complain via a phone call to your local office of the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor. Please rate me well after reading this or the service will not pay me for my work. Thank you and good luck.
