Bleeding Heartland: House votes down prevailing wage bill: now what?

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

The "prevailing wage" bill fiasco finally ended on Monday. ... As Iowa
Politics reported, McCarthy's vote-switch will allow the leadership to
bring this bill up later in the session, if they can find 51
supporters. The logical thing would be for one of the holdout
Democrats who represents a safe district to switch his or her vote,
but Geri Huser and Brian Quirk have made clear that they are not team
players and for whatever reason don't see the benefit to helping local
workers earn an extra dollar or two an hour.
