Executive Order (EO) 13658 establishes an hourly minimum wage of $10.35 for 2018 that applies to all contracts subject to the Service Contract Act for which the solicitation is issued on or after January 1, 2015. If the EO covers the contract for which your agency is requesting an SCA wage determination, the contractor must pay all workers in any classification listed on the wage determination at least $10.35 (or the applicable wage rate listed on the wage determination, if it is higher) for all hours spent performing on the contract. The EO minimum wage rate will be adjusted annually. Additional information on contractor requirements and worker protections under the EO is available at www.dol.gov/whd/govcontracts.
