Revisions to the Illinois Prevailing Wage Rates|
The Prevailing Wage Act (820 ILCS 130/1 et seq.) provides in part that the contractor, subcontractors, etc. shall pay to all labors, workers and mechanics performing work under the contract, not less than the prevailing rate of wages as determined by the Illinois Department of Labor. Illinois Department of Labor publishes the rates on the internet at www.state.il.us/agency/idol/. The contractor shall prominently post the current Schedule of Prevailing Wages at the project site and shall require all of its subcontractors to be aware of and pay the prevailing rate of wages.
