Stand up for our veterans by protecting prevailing wage
By Al Bond, Executive Secretary-Treasurer, Carpenters Regional Council and Brian Murphy, President of BAM Construction
In the construction industry, we get to work with many remarkable veterans who come home to Missouri and literally build up their communities. People like Danny Burlison and Eric Phillippe, who are veterans, construction workers, and fathers.
Danny served our country in the US Navy, then came home to Springfield where he’s worked as a carpenter on public building projects in his community. One of the buildings he worked on was the high school his three kids attended. You can bet that he made sure that those buildings were well built and safe.
Eric is an Army veteran, and father of two who is now back in northwest Missouri. He’s worked on public buildings in his community, including schools as well. He’s also in the volunteer fire department.
Both Danny and Eric and their families rely on Prevailing Wage laws. READ MORE HERE.
