Prevailing Wages for FY2019

The Illinois statute (820 ILCS 130/1 et. seq) requires all public bodies every year during the month of June to establish prevailing wage rates for “laborers, mechanics, and other workers” under contract for public works projects. All contractors on MTD public works projects are required to pay at least this wage to employees utilized on those projects. The prevailing wage schedule for Champaign County is published on the official Illinois Department of Labor website here.
