Prevailing Wage

On June 6, 2018, Michigan's Prevailing Wages on State Projects law, Act 166 of 1965 was repealed as the result of a legislative initiative; the repeal was given immediate effect. Wage and Hour, therefore,  will no longer issue prevailing wage rates, and updates to surveys will not be made.  Any survey or other prevailing wage information filed with Wage and Hour in the future will be returned to the sender.


The Department is reviewing its responsibilities and obligations subsequent to the repeal. Please peruse our web-site at for updated information.  Thank you.
