Prevailing Wage

Indiana GOP Leader Admits Repealing Prevailing Wage 'Hasn't Saved a Penny'

A video has surfaced from a forum April 24 in Milwaukee, WI where Republican Indiana House Assistant Majority Leader Ed Soliday angrily reveals that similar legislation passed in Indiana which went into effect in 2015 "hasn't saved a penny."

"We got rid of prevailing wage and so far it hasn't saved a penny," Soliday says during the question and answer session last week hosted by the Wisconsin Transportation Development Association in Milwaukee. "Probably the people most upset with us repealing [prevailing] wage were the locals. Because the locals, quite frankly, like to pay local contractors and they like local contractors to go to the dentist in their own town."

In the video obtained by One Wisconsin Now, Republican Soliday also mocks the outrageous claims about savings made by right-wing organizations like Americans for Prosperity. In Indiana, anti-worker groups claimed prevailing wage repeal would save taxpayers 22 percent on construction costs.

"The exaggerations in those hearings that we were going save 22 percent," Soliday says. "Well, total labor costs right now in road construction is about 22 percent, and I haven't noticed anyone who's going to work for free. [They claim] there's some magic state out there that's going to send all these workers into work for $10 an hour and it's just not going to happen. There's not 22 percent savings out there when the total cost of labor is 22 percent. It's rhetoric."

Soliday adds, "So far, I haven't seen a dime of savings out of it."

Thomas J. Sweeney Scholarship Fund
Thomas J. Sweeney

The EBCF-Thomas J. Sweeney Scholarship Fund was established to honor the memory and contributions of a great labor leader of the IBEW Local 595.  Tom Sweeney was the Business Manager/Financial Secretary of Local 595 for 28 years, and under his leadership Local 595 established pension programs and health and welfare benefit programs that are the model for many labor unions today.  Tom’s lifelong work for the IBEW and Local 595 left a legacy of accomplishment that is deeply appreciated by all who knew him.

For 2017 there will be 20 grants awarded to successful applicants.  Ten of these grants for $2,000 will be for graduating high school students who have been accepted at a college or university.  An additional ten grants for $1,000 will be for students currently enrolled in a secondary educational institution, including a California state-approved apprenticeship program. 

Letters have been mailed to all members who have dependents matching the requirements.  If you did not receive a letter and information, please contact Local 595. The deadline for applications is May 31, 2017.
