Prevailing Wage Commission

The Prevailing Wage Commission provides a service to both the citizens and businesses of the State of Tennessee. The commission has the duty of determining the prevailing wage rate for state highway (i.e. highways, roads and bridges) construction projects. Within Tennessee, prevailing wage is used for government work to regulate fair pay at wages equivalent to the general workforce, so as to attract reputable contractors who will deal ethically with their workers and the government.
