Prevailing Rate of Wage


As per RCW 39.12.015, 39.12.020 and WAC 296-127-011 and as was published on the internet on February 2, 2009, and were effective March 4, 2009, the industrial statistician has determined the statewide prevailing rates of wage. These prevailing rates of wage are effective for public works projects bid on or after March 4, 2009. On March 25, 2009, the industrial statistician made a correction to these rates. The corrected rate will be effective on April 24, 2009, thirty days from the date of correction.

Every contractor and subcontractor on every public works project must file a statement of intent to pay prevailing wages and an affidavit of wages paid. Both forms must be filed on every project. The filing of the affidavit of wages paid does not set aside the requirement to also file the statement of intent to pay prevailing wages. The department may fine contractors $500 for failure to file these forms.

For more information on prevailing wage or a copy of the rates please visit our web site at www.lni.wa.gov/TradesLicensing/PrevailingWage/ or call (360) 902-5335.
