Fringe benefits: Are the mandatory rates for overtime and holidays based only upon the hourly rate or on the total hourly wage including fringe?

The overtime and holiday rates are based on the total amount of wages and fringe benefits combined.  The rate of pay for overtime is one and a half times the amount of the prevailing hourly rate of wages or the public works contracting minimum wage (whichever is applicable). The rate for holidays is twice the applicable rate.
