To repeal section 290.305, RSMo, and to enact in lieu thereof one new section relating to prevailing wages on public works.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Section 290.305, RSMo, is repealed and one new section enacted in lieu thereof, to be known as section 290.305, to read as follows:
290.305. No person, firm or corporation shall violate the wage provisions of any contract contemplated in sections 290.210 to 290.340 or suffer or require any employee to work for less than the rate of wages so fixed, or violate any of the provisions contained in sections 290.210 to 290.340. Where workmen are employed and their rate of wages has been determined as provided in sections 290.210 to 290.340, no person, either for himself or any other person, shall request, demand or receive, either before or after such workman is engaged, that such workman pay back, return, donate, contribute, or give any part or all of said workman's wages, salary, or thing of value, to any person, upon the statement, representation, or understanding that failure to comply with such request or demand will prevent such workman from procuring or retaining employment, and no person shall, directly or indirectly, pay, request or authorize any other person to violate this section. This section does not apply to any agent or representative of a duly constituted labor organization acting in the collection of dues or assessments of such organization. Assessments permitted under this section by a duly appointed labor organization shall not include deductions from workman's wages for the purpose of funding union job targeting programs (JTP), market recovery programs, or any other form of deduction from workman's wages which may revert back to the benefit of the employer.
