Jim Crow was a series of “anti-Black laws” after the Civl War. Another term used was “Black Codes”.
The Davis-Bacon Act, which required that federal construction contractors pay their workers “prevailing wages,” was passed by Congress in 1931 with the intent of favoring white workers who belonged to white-only unions over non-unionized black workers.
It was and remains a Black Code. A Jim Crow in the 21st Century.
The act continues to have discriminatory effects today by favoring disproportionately white, skilled and unionized construction workers over disproportionately black, unskilled and non-unionized construction workers. Because Davis-Bacon was passed with discriminatory intent and continues to have discriminatory effects, its enforcement violates the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection of the law.
