within thirty (30) days after th~e effective date of the Code submit
a list of such operations and occupations in the indlustry.
ECONOMICII EFFECTSI' OF TH-IE CODE:
1. The re-port of the Division of Research and Planning indicates
that the production of the Plate Glass Division (which constitu~tes
approximaltely 5r0'7 of this industry) dleclinlel from 150,5i04-,000
square feet in 1929 to 86,037,000 square feit, in 1933 or about 43P9.
While no figures are given for the production of the Structulral
Glass and Rough Rolled and Wire Glass Divisions, it is assumed
that they suffered the same decline inn much as they, like the Plate
Glass Division, depend largely on construction activity for their
mnrke~~tt. In the Safety Glass Division production in 1933 was
grea~te~r than in 1929 due to the increasing demand for its products
in the Automotive Industry. Sales for the entire industry totaled
$32,57?0,000 in 1933. Sales for the first six months of 1934 were
73.6% of the sales for the entire y-ear 1933 indicating a substantial
upturn in the industry.
2. While complete and accurate statistics on emp~loymnent within
the industry are not available, it is estimated thnt the~ total number
of emnployes in the indurstry inl 1999 was about 16,880, alnd in the
first part of 10353 about 8,000. In the latter part of 1933 the number
of emp>loyees was estimalted to be~ about 11,000 due both to the opera-
tion ~o te~ President's Reemployment Agreement and the upturn
inl business. B3asedl on 1Bureau of Labor Staltistic~s covperingf Trend
of ]Emploryment for all glass ma:nufacturlers, it would appear that;
in this ind-ustry- from June, 19r33 to June, 10,34 emnplo~ymelt, increased
316.Av~erae hours worked dlecltrease from~ 42.1 to 33.5 or 17%o
while average hourly earning increasedl from 44$ to 550 or 19.6%0
within thne net result that average weeklyl ear~ninlgs dccclcniirea fr'om
$18.97i to $18.42Z or 0.8%r.
3. Incr~eased~ employment due to the thirty-six (36) hour general
provrision and the forty-two (42) hour provision for the continuous
processes, on the basis of employment for the last half of 1933 and
the first half of 1934, should restore the industry to the 1929 level,
and in conclusion it may be statedl that, evetn if the operation of the
Code does not greatly increase average wages, the position of th~e
industry wo~ill be reasonably gSood, provided that reductionsll of wReekly
earnings do not result from the shortening of hours.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to us on. said Code
having found as herein set forth and on the basis of all the proceed-
ings in this matter:
We ~find that:
(a) Said Code is well dlesigrned to promote the policies and pur-
poses of Title I of the N~ational I~ndustrial Rlecover~y Act, including
removal of obstructions to the free flow of inlterstate and foreign
commruerce which tend to diminish the amount thereof and will pro-
vide for the general welfare by promoting~ the orgaanization of in-
dustry for the purpose of cooperative action among the trade groups,
by inducing and maintaining united action of labor and mana:lge-
mnent uider adequate governmental sanctions and supervision, by
elimi nating unfair comllpetitive~ p~ractices~, b~y promoting the fullest
possible utilization of the present productive c:n pneit.y of industries,
by avoiding unlue restriction of production (txc~ep't as may be tem-
po"rar~ily required), by increasing the consumption of industrial anld
agricultural products through increasing purchasing p~ower, byg
reducing and relieving unemploymenl t, by improving standards of
labor, and by othleri~s rehabilitating industry.
(b) Said industry norally em~ployes not more than 50,000 em-
p~layees; and is not classified by us as a major ind ust ry.
(c) The Code as approved complies in all respec~lts with the perti-
nent provisions of sn id Title of said Act, including without limitation
Sub~section (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and Subsec-
tion (b) of Sectionl 10 thereof; and that the applicant group is an
industrial group truly repr~esentativecr of the afor~esaid industry and
that said group imposes nzo inequitable restrictions on admission to
(d) The Code is not designed to and will not permit monopolies
or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Codre is not dlesiged to and will not eliminate or oppress
small enterprises and wciill not o~pera~te to discrim~inate against them.
(f) Those. c~l~engag in other steps of the economic process have n~ot
been deprived of the right to be h~eard prior to approval of said Code.
For these reasons, there~for~e, we have approved this Code.
