In a labor dispute involving the scope of Section 1771 of the State's prevailing wage law (PWL), Lab. Code section 1720 et seq., judgment of the trial court granting a petition for a writ of mandate is reversed where: 1) a hotel construction project on land that the defendant leases to a private party qualifies as public work within the meaning of the PWL; 2) construction was done under a contract that was paid for in whole or in part out of public funds; and 3) the lease specifies that the defendant will provide a rent credit during the first 11 years of the lease.
