Occupational Titles: How does the new law impact the ratio of journeymen to "apprentice" and "entry-level" workers and their rate of pay?

Rate of pay – As of August 28, 2018 each apprentice and entry-level worker will be paid half of the rate of a journeyman (including fringe) working in their same occupational title classification in the county where the public project is located.  

Example:(Basic + Fringe) X .50% = Wage for Entry Level/Apprentice Workers
               ($30 + $10) X .50% = $20 Wage for Entry Level/Apprentice Workers

Ratio of apprentice/entry-level workers – The new law mandates no more than a 1:1 ratio of journeymen to apprentices/entry-level workers based on their chosen occupational title for a particular project.
