And you pay your W2 employees government scale wages? And you think all the nationals pay all their W2 employees government scale?
In Michigan (Calhoun Co) it's:
01011 - Accounting Clerk I 13.30
01012 - Accounting Clerk II 14.93
01013 - Accounting Clerk III 17.42
01020 - Administrative Assistant 19.59
11090 - Gardener 15.98
11150 - Janitor 12.95
11210 - Laborer, Grounds Maintenance 13.86
23130 - Carpenter, Maintenance 20.92
And the list goes on. Now that's Calhoun County. Other Counties may have different wage requirements. And, add to the wage per hour, PTO for all 10 National Holidays, plus earned PTO for each year of service.
Like I said, I don't know how far this may go. I don't. But, I can see where it might cost the nationals, and everybody else working under the HUD contracts. You need to be very aware of this development and not take it lightly until we know for sure where it will go.
