Proposed Amendment Requires Hiring of Local Workers

June 22, 2015

The proposed Charter Amendment 3 to the Tennessee Lawful Employment Act would require construction companies doing business with the city of Nashville, Tenn., to hire more local workers, reports Nashville NPR

If the amendment passes, 40 percent of  “worker hours” on all large publically funded projects would have to go to Davidson County, Tenn., residents – and 10 percent specifically to low-income residents.
