Labor Day News: Could California Prevailing Wage Law Hurt Nonprofits?

In a story that is appropriate for the Labor Day Weekend, KHTS, a radio station in Canyon County, California, reports a state legislator is making a last ditch attempt to extend an exception to California's prevailing wage law for nonprofit volunteers before this Sunday's deadline for passing legislation this year.  An entry on the Governor's California Volunteers website states that the current exception protects nonprofits from having to pay the prevailing wage to volunteers who work on community projects that could be classified as public works.  The exception expires, however, at the end of 2008, and the KHTS story states that previous legislative attempts to extend the extension have failed.
