Prevailing definition

Prevailing. The prevailing wage means the most outstanding or commonly paid rate for the largest number of workers enjoyed in similar work in a locality. The model rate has generally been recog- nized as that prevailing where less than a majority, but as many as 40% of the workers in similar work are paid at the same rate. Therefore, when there is a single rate at which at least 40% of the workers in similar work are employed, that rate is prevailing. In the event there is no 40% mode, the prevailing rate may be determined by using the average or median wage as the standard for comparison, based on the best information available. The prevailing starting rate should be obtained in the same manner as the prevailing rate. The mode, must of necessity, be used in determining the prevailing conditions of work when fringe benefits are involved, since fringe benefits cannot be measured in numbers and cannot be averaged.
