Prevailing Wage Workers Play Vital Role after Irma and Harvey

Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey have caused the activation of volunteers and responders to help Florida recover. Aside from the National Guardsmen and military in active duty, government contractors also play a big role in this painstaking process. They serve as a vital connection between federal, state, and local relief operations. An example of a company doing so is Engility.

Relief operations are more effective with government contractors

Enlisting the help of prevailing wage workers doesn’t mean that the government isn’t capable of doing their job. Government contractors just possess the right technology and logistics that will fill in the gap where government agencies fall short.
