Guam - U.S. Department of Labor Wage & Hour Division Regional Administrator George Friday, Jr. is on island to talk about the importance of prevailing wage information under the Davis-Bacon Act. That act established the requirement for paying prevailing wages on construction projects.
Friday will also discuss the upcoming prevailing wage survey to ensure the most accurate wage rates. A conference is being held this week at the Marriott Hotel for local and federal contractors to help them understand the new requirements.
