Prevailing wages are required on this Contract. The Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations determines the general prevailing wage rates. Obtain the wage rates at the DIR Web site, http://www.dir.ca.gov/DLSR/PWD, or from the City’s Engineering Division.

The federal minimum wage rates for this Contract as determined by the United States Secretary of Labor are included in the Bid Book Section 14 and are available at http://www.wdol.gov/dba.aspx.

If the minimum wage rates as determined by the United States Secretary of Labor differs from the general prevailing wage rates determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations for similar classifications of labor, you and your subcontractors must not pay less than the higher wage rate. The City does not accept lower State wage rates not specifically included in the federal wage determinations. This includes helper, or other classifications based on hours of experience, or any other classification not appearing in the federal wage determinations. Where Federal wage determinations do not contain the State wage rate determination otherwise available for use by you and your subcontractors, you and your subcontractors must pay not less than the Federal minimum wage rate that most closely approximates the duties of the employees in question.
