LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – It’s a discussion that has been ongoing for months, deals with the state’s 50-year-old Prevailing Wage Law.

On Monday Construction Association members will be holding an event to discuss why repealing the Prevailing Wage Law would be bad for the state.

The current law requires workers on state financed construction projects to be paid prevailing union-scale wages.

Opponents to the law have been gaining momentum.

Earlier this month, organizers of a drive to repeal the Prevailing Wage Law have turned in more than 390,000 signatures to send a petition to the state legislature.
