MA Prevailing Wage Law - A Guide for Awarding Authorities

The law provides that works by “the commonwealth, or by a county, town, or district” require the payment of prevailing wages. In general, this means all public agencies and their subdivisions, including state agencies, counties, authorities, cities, towns, school departments, highway or public works departments, water departments, housing authorities, and other municipal departments
are covered by the prevailing wage law.
