ODOT over saw the work, as it was a State Highway bridge job. We did not work for ODOT
Im glad you got that job. Oregon has beautiful bridges. Thats the one on the coast right ? You mean they only finished half of it ? Last time I went by they were just past the roadway shoulder.

The guy that designed the bridges along the coast has a decent reputation. Its worth the effort to keep them up as they are so beautiful.

This pic brings back memories of the coast.

IF ODOT has people doing those jobs as well, their pay would be used to figure prevailing wage as well.   This includes PERS and the whole package.  If they go to a prevailing wage job they would get paid their normal rate because PERS and their regular package would all count against the 41-47$ total.  Another thing- if ODOT is the largest and most steady employer from those jobs it is quite possible that they are setting the average prevailing wage rate themselves.
  The reason I learned all of this is because I went to a prevailing wage job myself and was wondering why I didn't get 45$ an hour but Joe off the street did.

Long story short. My parents have lived on the coast for 34 years. ( retired here ) I lived in Sparks,Nevada, we had lost our jobs with little notice ( recession ) and were going to lose our home. I took that job in hopes of saving our home. It was a 2 year job, and the plan failed. The pay was good, the job was the worst I had ever had in my life. ( I am 47, worked full time since 17 ). If it were run by decent people, it would have been a god job.
We are still here, although it has been and still is a ruff ride.

The coast is nice, I have all ways loved the Salmon fishing. I miss my grand kids, and my son, and the home we thought we would live our lives out in. We are just in survival mode really.

The amount of welfare payments given to single parents raising children is "high" because it costs alot to raise a child, and the more children the single parent has, the higher the amount of welfare should be to cover the cost of child-rearing without an earning job. I read somewhere the average cost of raising a child in 18 years has risen and the total rounds atover $2 million! That's alot of money, but divide the number of years the average annual costs sums up at over $111,111. Parents do their hardest to cut down the costs of raising children by financial thrift and sacrifice to be able to afford the mortgage and utility bills.
