LABOR ‑- CONTRACTS ‑- PUBLIC WORKS ‑- STANDARDS FOR DETERMINING WAGE ‑- FRINGE BENEFITS The requirement of chapter 39.12 RCW that the "prevailing rate of wage" be paid to laborers, workmen or mechanics upon all public works of the state, or any county, municipality, or political subdivision, does not necessitate that such persons employed subject to its provisions be provided with actual "bona fide fringe benefit programs" so long as wages are paid in an amount which includes the prevailing costs of such programs as are identified in RCW 39.12.010.
