Letter to the editor: Fed up with wage reporting
To the editor:
The onus of providing proof of prevailing wages paid by nonunion contractors is verging on ridiculous.
We currently fill out form WH-347 to show that prevailing wages are paid, as well as the affidavit of compliance with prevailing wage on form ERD-5724. Now we are required to duplicate all of this information yet again and provide this to the state in a 50 field spreadsheet.
Does the word redundant pop in your head? Does the idea that the duplication of data is an inefficient way to spend your workday?
It is becoming increasingly difficult to run a small business in this state, and it makes me wonder why anyone would choose to do business here. It is evident that our government is out of touch with the realities of running a small business in Wisconsin with the burdens they continue to place on us.
