    The Service Contract Act sets prevailing wages for employees of federal contractors in a host of occupations.  Now, the prevailing wage under the SCA doesn't nearly as often mirror the applicable contract rate as it does under Davis-Bacon, in part because of the the heavier union density in construction.  But there is, in fact, a federal prevailing wage for a lot of work outside of the building trades. And there's a good reason for that -- government oughtn't be using it's buying power to drive down wage markets.
