IV. Davis-Bacon Wage Surveys

I have a large number of workers, can I average my wage rates?

WHD may not accept average wage rates as these would skew the results of the wage survey calculations. You should report the individual wage rate and fringe benefit for each of your workers. (See example below)


1 @ $10.00

1 @ $10.50 plus $26.00 weekly Health Insurance

2 @ $ 9.50

1 @ $10.30
