Texas Prevailing Wage Rates on Public Contracts

In regard to contracts for public work awarded by the state or any other "public body," a contractor or sub contractor must pay the "general prevailing rate of per diem wages" for the locality. This includes the rate for overtime work and legal holidays. This minimum rate must be specified by the "public body" as it calls for bids. Maintenance work is excluded from coverage. Any bidder or contractor must, in essence, protect their employees from working at below prevailing local wages.
