Requirement to Pay Prevailing Wages
Where a prevailing rate of wages has been determined and prescribed, the contract executed between a public authority and the successful bidder or contractor shall contain a provision requiring the successful bidder and all of his subcontractors to pay not less than the rate of wages so established.  The successful bidder or contractor and all subcontractors shall strictly comply with these provisions of the contract.
All contractors and subcontractors required by KRS 337.505 to 337.550 and by contracts with any public authority to pay not less than the prevailing rate of wages, shall pay such wages in legal tender without any deductions.
