pr~ovi ions- of the National Industrliall Recovery ~Act.
110[88l( AND WAGES

The Codle pr~ovidles that the tsuployeecr eng~aged~I on continulous
process op~eration-l may work more than eight (8) hours 1,(r day,
btnot to exceed forty (40) hours per wceek in normal peri~ods and
the hours in one day in excess of eight (8) hours shall be, paid for
at the r~ate of one and one-haltlf tim~tes the normaal rate. DUr~1ine a
peak period~, not to exscee~d tw~elve (12) weeks~l; in any one c-nlendac~ir
year, emplloyees may work forty-four (44) hours11' per' wee.~ck but the
hours in excess of ~forty (40) hours per w~eekr shall be paid for at
the rate of one and one-half times(' the normal ralte. Except iolnc to
these hours are! provided for watchmlen, who are permnitted to w1or'k
a maximum of forty-eight (48) hoursI' per weekc~l, averaged over a conl-
secutive 2-weeks~li' period. Also, excepttions are madel~ for ou~tcside
sale~lllnen and oultsid'e service employees, ex~cutive, chemists. and
research wror~kers earning more than thirty-five~ (35) dollars per
TIhe limitations of hours sha~ll not apply in c_;resc of emergenc't'iLy
but in such special cases, the waget rate for thle hours workedt in
excess~ of the nusiximumi hours shall be one and one-half timesi the
normal rate.
Ai minimum rate of pay of forty (40) I~ltc; nts pr hour is estab-
livlhed with the pr1ovisionsI1 that office boys or girls shall not be paIid
less than eighty (80) per cent of th-e mninimumn rate.
S~tandards- for sanitattion and safety, as r~c;(nunendedllt'c byT the
United States Public Health Service, shalnl be submitted b~y the Code
Authority to the Administrator. No home work is to be allowed.
No person under sixteen (16) years of age shall be emplloyed and under eigh~ltreen (18) years of agce in occupations detrimental
to hea~lth.
Employees shall not be reclassified so as to d~feat the purposes of
the Act, and labor agr~~ileemet., nowi in force shall be affected only by
provisions thatl prescribe higher ra~tes of pay" and shorter hours of

Thec Inducll-try is not large as there were only about 2,300 peirsons
em~ploy-ed during~ the month~ of August 1933.,and less~ than. for~ty firms


were engaged~ in the businesses. The capital invecsted in 1932 was esti-
mated at twelve million dollars ($12,000,000) and the annual sales
at t wenlty-five million dollars ($25,000,000). Of the thir~ty-eighlt
firms who replied to questionnaires, tw~enty-four of them, wh-o are
members of the Association, employed 1,900 persons.
The statistic-s on. wages that were compiled are quite meagre but
theyS show that very low wages were paid, in reveral instances, not
more thlan fifteen (15) cents per hour, and the average mninimumn
wage for the entire Industry was twPlenty-nline cents (29t#) per hour
in Augrust, 1933. Ilt is estimated that undcer the Code employment
will be increa1:sedi ten per cent, ancd the amount paid out in wagerts will
be inlcreasedc~ substantially. The Industry indicated that thle peak
of emp~loymentll comres inr the spring and early urllnuneor moths.

T~he Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said Code
having found as herein set forth and on thne basis of all the proceed-
ings in this matter:
I, find thazt:
(a) Said Code is well designled~ to p~romorl:te the policies and pur-
poses of Title I of the National Industrial Rtecovery Act, including
remnovtal of obstructions to the free flow of inters~itat, and foreign
commner~ce which tend to diminish the amount thereof and will p~ro-
vide for the general welfare byr promoting the organization of indus-
try for the purpose of cooperative action among the trade groups,
by inducing anld mnintainingr united action of labor and ma~nage-
ment under adequate governmental sanctions and supervision, by
eliminlatingr unfair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest
possible utiilizationl of the present productive capacity of industries,
byV avoiding undue restriction of production (except as may be tem-
porarily required), by increasing the consumptionol of industrial and
agriculturlln products through increasing ~purchasing power, by re-
dueing and relieving unemployment, by Im~proving standards of
labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating .industr~y.
(b) Eraid Industry normally employs not more than. 50,000 em~-
ployees; and is not classified by me as a major indul~str~y.
(c) The Code as approved complies in. all respe~t c~ts with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including w-ithout limita-
tionl Sutbsection (a) of Sec~tion 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof; and that the applicant groups)
is an ind'ustrial group, truly repr~esentative of the aforesaid Ibndus-
try; and that said group imp~oses no inequitable r~estrictionsl on3 admllis-
sionl to mlembershlip therein.
(d)' The? Codejp is: Tnot. deig~nedl to and will not permit monopolies
or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Code is not. designredl to and will not eliminate or oppress
small enterprises and will not operate to discriminate against them.
(f) TIhose engaged in other steps of the economic process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to app~rova"l of said
For these r~easons, therefore, I have ap~pr~oved this Code; provided,
however, that the provisions of Section 3 (c) of Article VI, insofar


as they precscr~ibe a waiting period between the filing with the Code
Authority and thne effective date of revised price lists or revised terms
and conditions of sale be and they are hereby stayled pending my
further Order either within a period of sixty days forom the effective
date of said Code or after the completion of a study of open price
associations no-w being condlcuc.tedl by the National ]Recovery Admin-
