Creating Jobs to Restore Our Families

West Virginia is Great Place to Live

West Virginia offers us many reasons to stay: a great quality of life in one of the most beautiful places on earth, low cost of living, low crime, affordable housing, quality schools, unrivaled recreational opportunities and warm and welcoming communities.

Why Would Anyone Want to  Leave?

West Virginia has much to offer, but none of this matters much if you can’t make a decent living. When our residents leave, it is only because they have little choice.

Retaining and Returning Our Best

We can we retain our best and brightest and help those who are longing to return home through the creation of good-paying, private sector jobs. We can guarantee that West Virginia workers receive a wage that is fair to employers and workers alike. Many states have a Prevailing Wage Law which does all of these things.

Restore West Virginia Opportunity

By restoring West Virginia’s Prevailing Wage Law. we can bring home our native sons and daughters and create new opportunities and good-paying jobs for our young people. We can generate increased tax revenue to improve our roads and bridges, restore our rural hospitals and reunite our families.

Join With Us to Restore West Virginia

States that have adopted prevailing wage laws are prospering and West Virginians are watching, asking questions and raising their voices to support the restoration of our own Prevailing Wage Law. You can join with them by adding your name to our petition. Please get on board and help us to restore Prevailing Wage Law to Restore West Virginia!
