    Prevailing Wage, are pay rates required by all government entities, for example (I'm in the Landscape Industry)a landscape laborer doing work for private industry make $10 per hour or less, the same landscape laborer working on a Clark County Park (or any government job) is required to be paid prevailing wage approx. $40 per hour. This happens with all the trades. My understanding for the reason government require prevailing wage is to allow union contractor to be competitive with non-union for government work. However the construction Costs for government projects would be cut by at least 30% if prevailing wage rates were not in effect.

    Ms. Titus, My husband is active duty military and we are finding ourselves in a situation that you just described - we will be leaving Las Vegas soon and are stuck owning a home worth half what we paid for it. We did not have an exotic mortgage or buy a home outside of what we could afford. Could you please go more in depth and discuss the program you are sponsoring to help those in our situation?
