Coralville Courier: Unions prevail, taxpayers are defeated on wage bill

Excerpted from this post at Coralville Courier

Yesterday the Iowa House took up House File 333, which will enact a
prevailing wage in Iowa. The "prevailing wage" is an administrative
wage, set by government officials, based on union wage rates where the
work would be performed. They are, in effect, required by law to spend
more money than necessary. "We're over one-third of the way through
the legislative session and Democrats have yet to move a bill that
puts one Iowan back to work and this prevailing wage bill is nothing
new," said House Republican Leader Kraig Paulsen (R-Hiawatha).
