Government contractors may, from time to time, work on jobs that are covered by Living or Responsible Wage Ordinances. Approximately 125 municipalities and local governments have these ordinances. There is no standardization among living wage ordinances, and requirements can vary drastically regarding what types of benefits can be provided with the fringe portion of the wage.
When you work with The Contractors Plan, we assist you with complying with any Living or Responsible Wage Ordinance that may apply to your project. We often work in a collaborative manner with the Living Wage officers to clarify issues and offer suggestions that will work for all parties involved.
