Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

Not less than the general prevailing rate of hourly wages for
work of a similar character on public works in the locality in which the
work is performed, and not less than the general prevailing rate of
hourly wages for legal holiday and overtime work, shall be paid to all
laborers, workers and mechanics employed by or on behalf of any public
body engaged in the construction or demolition of public works.
This includes any maintenance, repair, assembly, or disassembly work performed on equipment whether owned, leased, or rented. Only such laborers, workers and mechanics as are
directly employed by contractors or subcontractors in actual
construction work on the site of the building or construction job, and
laborers, workers and mechanics engaged in the transportation of
materials and equipment to or from the site, but not including the
