This site is for informational purposes only. This wage rate site is provided as a Guideline. It is the Contractor's, NOT ABC SoCal's, responsibility to ensure that every apprentice is paid the correct pay and benefit package required by the applicable laws and regulations, including pay upgrades. Pay Periods/Levels can/will vary from County to County and/or from Project to Project. The Contractor should review, among other documents, the State prevailing wage determinations and the attached Footnotes; Holiday; Scope; Travel; and `Pre-Determined increases issued by the State Director of Industrial Relations and the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE) for the specific project in question, as well as the Federal wage rates, before deciding whether to use the wage rates provided for pay and benefit package purposes.

Read the 'Notice of Understanding' before continuing to the wage rate pages for important information.
