Today in Labor History – May 31st     

1997 – Rose Will Monroe, who became known as “Rosie the Riveter” died at the age of 77. Rose worked at an aircraft parts factory during World War II, and was “discovered” by filmmakers producing a film promoting war bonds. The song and the iconic poster were already well known and a real-life Rosie who was a riveter “proved too good for the film’s producers to resist,” said Monroe’s daughter.

Davis Bacon Info

This act mandates that on federally-funded construction projects, contractors have to pay the wage and fringe benefits (i.e., health insurance, retirement) paid to the majority of workers in an area–these being the “prevailing” wage and fringes. Wage Determinations On Line provides a Davis-Bacon User’s Guide, and the Iron worker Management Progressive Action Cooperative Trust (IMPACT) has a Davis-Bacon Compliance Officer to answer your questions about the Davis-Bacon and related acts. You have a right to be paid the prevailing wage and full fringe benefits.
