I am a Framing contractor in Ca.
One of my Builder clients needs a Prevailing Wage bid on a job
coming up.
I understand P.W.jobs, but what I am needing is a way to convert
my Piece Pricing to Hrly.Wage.
Has anyone (that usually bids there work using piece pricing) come up with a formula to convert it into Prevailing Wage Rates?

We typically (for example)would pay a Framing crew 26 cents a sq.ft.
to frame and stand the walls. The lead guy might make $200 a day and
5 other guys maybe $100 a day and 2 labors $70 a day.
P.W. says that all those guys must make at least $45.50 an hr.
Has anyone figured out the conversion?
Man your guya work cheap. $100 a day? You really get people to work for that?:eek:

Living Wage Calculation for California
The living wage shown is the hourly rate that an individual must earn to support their family, if they are the sole provider and are working full-time (2080 hours per year). The state minimum wage is the same for all individuals, regardless of how many dependents they may have. The poverty rate is typically quoted as gross annual income. We have converted it to an hourly wage for the sake of comparison. Wages that are less than the living wage are shown in red.

Ask why he needs the prevailing wage first. Is it a union job? government job? Your employees will love it considering what you usually pay them. Going from $100 a day to about $350 a day.
