LANSING – Please join the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research (IPPSR) for an informed discussion on Michigan’s Prevailing Wage planned for October 17, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., in downtown Lansing’s Anderson House Office Building, 124 N. Capitol Avenue and N. Ottawa Street. There is no charge to attend, but registration is necessary. A light lunch will be provided at no charge on a first-come, first-serve basis. Register here now.

Among the panelists will be Dale Belman, Professor in the School of Human Resources & Labor Relations at Michigan State University and President of the Institute for Construction Economics Research (ICERES) and Neil Parish, Assistant Manager at the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA).

Earlier this fall the Michigan Legislature voted into law three proposals originally destined for the November ballot, including proposals to repeal Michigan’s prevailing wage, set a new higher minimum wage and set a minimum sick leave benefit for workers. So now what? This forum will explore Michigan’s Prevailing Wage and looks to human resources and labor relations experts to layout the current law and its impact on employers, skilled trades, and working families. It will observe variations of the law, as held by 32 other States, and generate next step scenarios given the repeal and a newly-formed lawsuit against the repeal.

More about the panelists and further IPPSR activity may be found on the IPPSR website.
