MITA Success – “Flag Person” Wages Corrected

After months of discussion, MITA has been successful in convincing the U.S. Department of Labor that the “Flag Person” rate they have been publishing in the Michigan “MI1, Highway” wage determination was without basis and published in apparent error.


Effective with the October 2, 2015 publication of the Michigan “MI1, Highway” wage determination, the “Flag Person” rate is established at $10.10 in wage and $0.00 in fringe.


This newly published Flag Person wage is the federal minimum hourly wage established by Executive Order 13658.
