I am working on a federal job with federal wages and fringes. What are fringes?
My company is only paying me my hourly rate which is less than the federal wage. I brought this up and they said that I have a company vehicle. Does having a company vehicle mean I dont get the federal wage? I think my company is getting over on me, I need to figure out what these fringes are? Not minimum wage. I install low voltage wiring and I am the lead tech on the job. I make an hourly rate of 20 an hour, however the federal wage at my level is 22.05 with fringes @ 7.93. I have a list of the wages for this job but I dont understand the fringes, should I receive this also? Yes I do get to bring my truck home.
