Calif. High Court's Wage Ruling May Spur More Charter Cities

This article discusses the California Supreme Court’s recent ruling that charter cities don’t have to follow state prevailing wage requirements for their own public works projects, which upholds charter cities’ autonomy. Littler attorney Van Goodwin is quoted throughout, and says of the ruling, “it opens the door for a lot of opportunities and a lot of avenues for cities, some of which are on the verge or have been in the throes of bankruptcy. They have precious dollars to spend, and now they can spend those dollars in a more cost-effective way.”
