Cincinnati Now Has Prevailing Wage Law

Cincinnati City Council yesterday approved a prevailing wage law.The measure requires workers on city-funded construction projects to be paid a union wage of 23-dollars an hour. Supporters say the measure will prevent contractors from exploiting workers. Critics say it'll force the cost of building projects to increase.
