I am working County Jail that has a Contract with the

I am working for a County Jail that has a Contract with the Federal Marshals Service; we board Federal Inmates and transport them to and from Court, etc., and we are not being paid an hourly wage that is defined by the Wage Determination of the McNamara-O'Hara Service Contract Act. The fringed benefits are equitable, however, we are concerned about the amount of wages and the end result of that being felt immediately and for retirement purposes. Does the McNamara-O'Hara Service Contract Act apply? The Contracting Officer that procured the Contract did not apply the Federal Wage Determination to the Contract.

I am a contractor on a certified payroll project. The guys

I am a contractor on a certified payroll project. The guys onsite are trying to tell me that they are due "per diem" according to the law. The prevailing wage rate is $23.10 with $10.54 in fringe benefits. They are asking me to now pay their housing and daily meals. Does the fringe benefits part of that $34 an hour rate not include food travel all of that? There are ton of people standing in line for $34 an hour that are in the same city and would appreciate it. I am not about to put up with someone ignorantly trying to extort money out of me. From what I understand - the only people who are owed per diem according to the law are federal employees- correct? And as far as hosing and meals are concerned - no laws anywhere state that I am supposed to pay this. Right?
