Davis Bacon & Related Act: Relevancy in Today's Construction Industry


The Associated General Contractors of New Hampshire (AGC of NH) conducted an in-depth look at the relevancy of the Davis Bacon Wage Law in today's construction industry. The law was enacted in 1931 to ensure fair wages were paid to construction workers, and has been amended only a handful of times since then. The law was necessary when it was enacted, but today's labor market has vastly changed with employees demanding fair pay and benefits. Therefore, if the market demands it, is federal involvement necessary?

AGC of NH has developed a booklet and companion slideshow that highlights reasons why the Act is no longer relevant. Additionally, the Association has compiled a list of useful resources on this topic.
