This local business is not paying scale wages for scale jobs.They have done this now and in the past, one of them including the Memorial building. If it is a federal funded job then how are they getting out of paying their employees federal wages?

So your a friend to the owner and you used to work for them? And they may pay federal wages on some of the jobs but not all of them. And at the rate they are going you will probably be the only friend they have. My opinion is if you really worked for them in the first place you wouldn't be their "friend."

To be honest with you I work for a company that deals with "prevailing wage" payments throughout our orders of business. There are many factors that contribute to you getting paid prevailing wage, so I would hold off on making any type of complaint, cause chances are you would look like an idiot. I can explain scenarios in which you would not receive the full amount of prevailing "scale wage" whatever you want to call it, but you would probably just come back at me with no thats not how it was. So, I will take the time to watch this post and if you want more information I will give it to you, but be prepared, I am not going to waste my time with someone that is going to argue when the truth is staring them in the face.

Also, for the record I am against prevailing wage, just for the shear fact of how is it fair..... I could go more into that, but yet another thing that you would probably argue with until you are blue in the face.

I have no affiliation with Main St, nor will I ever, but I know the guys that are over the operation, and I must admit I would be super surprised if they were doing anything in an illegal way.

In my opinion, a lot of the things taht you are saying are probably slander. If someone reads this message and they have indeed stuck to code, you my friend are screwed, because they could claim this hurts business, due to bad publicity. So be cautious.

As I said I will be watching.

if u dont know this, theres a good chance u have either used one of there businesses...the carwash, the jiff lube, half of the rental property in town, or maybe enjoyed a ball game at hunicutt field or the devils ray stadium that they financed to have the turf put down on, or watched a show in the chuck mathena center when they gave money to finish it being built. its not a tax break either. its a foundation there grandfather started in order to help the town. to u really think they accomplished all this by cheating a worker out of 10 dollars on wages. come on, get real.

Why would a company invest so much money on something if they get nothing in return? My answer is. They would not.
Duh huh

You don't deserve prevailing wage if you are coming on Topix whining and crying trying to damage someone's reputation.

Be a man, get a job, work hard and for fucksake grow up and stop the whining.
