Th~e Wh7ite HiTouse.
SmR: This is a report on the Code of F~air Comnpetition for thne
Stainled' and Leaded Glass Industry, the hearing having been conl-
ducted in Washingrton on June 1, 1934, in accordance with the provi-
sions of Title I of the National I[ndustrial Reecovery Act.

The Code provides that no employee shall be permitted to wtork
in excess of forty (40) hours in any one week, or more than eight
(8) hoursl in any twetnty-four (24) hour period or more than six (16)
days in anly seven ('7) dlay period, except that employees may be
pe~rmittedl to work not in excess of forty-eight (48) hours inl any one
weeki in any six (6) weeks in ainy six (6) months period; provided,
howTever, that any such emplloyees shall be paid at least one and
one-hanlf (11/2) times the Illnorml rate for all hours worked in excess
of eight (8) hours in any one dayT and forty (40) hours in any one
week. Exception:io is made for emplloyees engaging in emergency
Imaintenancee and/or r;pa;ir work, provided they are paid one aind
one-half (~114) times the no~rmal rate for hours worked in rexcess of
forty (40) hours in any one week or eight (8) hours in any one day.
Minimum, wage rates of $1.~00 per hour for wcork: done on the more
expensive type of industry products and 804 an hour for work done.
on the other products of the Industry are etabullishedl, except th~at
employees engagl~ed as helpers shall be paid at the rate of not less
than 40$ an hour and employees enreng~ted as apprentices shall be
paid at the rate of not less than 35g! an hour for the first six (6)
months of apprenticeship with an increase of 50 per hour at the end
of each six (6) months period during apprenticeship. Accounting,
c~lerIicarl or office employees shall be paid at a, rate of not less than.
$15.00 per week. A differential is established between soulthern'l and
northern wage areas, which provides that in the southern area th~e
minimum wnee~t rate shall be not less than ninety (90) percent of
the minimumn wage rate provided for in t'he Codel.


This Industry, belenusei of its conc.llcctio~n with the Coural~ction
Industry, has salfei1~re severely during the depression. T'he number
of employees in the Industry in 1929 was approximately 3,500 but
had fallen to about 1,000 in 1933, the latest year for which figures
are available. The volume of production in 1933 was about one-sixth
of that in 1929, when it was estimaltedc at apprloximaltely $6G.000),000. to the statistical] analysis of the Division of Research


and Planning the stimulation of employmllent i~n th~is Industry will
have to awPait anl increase in, building conrlstrulc.t ion.

The D~eputy Administr~ator in his final report to us on said Code
having found as hlerein set forthl and on the bas~is of all the proceed-
ings in this matter,
We fid that:
(a) Said Code is wYell deignei!id to promo'"te the policies anld pur-
poses of T'itle I of the National Industrial Rcover~~y Act, including
removal of obstructions to the free flow of interstate anrd foreign
comlmerce~ which tend to diminish thne amount thereof and will pro-
vide for the general welfare by promoting the organization of indus-
try for the purpose of cooperative action among trade groups, by
inducinga and maintaining united action of labor and management
under adequate govrnmerr~lr~ nta .csanctions andc sulpervision, byv el~lmnt.-
ing unfair competitive practices, by promoting the fulles~t possible
utilization of the present productivet capacity of indu trflieS, by avoid-
ing undue restriction. of production exceptt as may be temporarily
required), by increasing the consumption of industr1ial and agricul-
tural products through increasing p~urchasingb power by reducing
and relieving u~nemploymernt,:~ by imrov1,ing standards of labor, and~1
byT otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) Said Industry normally employs not more than 50,000 emn-
ployees; anld is nlot classified by us as a major industry.
(c) The Code as approved complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including w-ithou~lt. limitation
Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and Suibsec-

monopolistic practices.
(e) The Code is not designed to and wcFill not eliminate or oppress
small enterprises and will not operate to discrim~inzate against them.z

be delayed, and when made such increases should, so far as possible,
be limited to actual additional increases in tlhe seller's costs.
