Labor Standards -- Prevailing wage minimum truck rental rates

Prevailing wages are the wages required to be paid on state-funded construction projects. Truck rental rates are certified once a year for highway construction projects.

Minnesota's prevailing wage law (Minnesota Statutes 177.41 through 177.44) requires employees working on state-funded construction projects or other projects covered by law be paid wage-rates comparable to wages paid for similar work in the area where the project is located.

Minimum truck rental rates are a combination of costs for truck operation and prevailing wage for drivers for "four or more axle straight body trucks," "three axle units," "tractor only" and "tractor trailers."
