The White HElouse.
SmR: A Public Hearing on the Code of Fair Competition for the
~American Glassware Industry, submitted by the American Glass-
ware Association, located at 19 West 44th Street, New York, N.Y.,
wvas conducted in W~ashingtonJ on the 3rd of Novem~ber 1933 inr ac-
cordance with the provisions of the National Inldustrial Rtecovery
A1Sct. TIhe ALssociationr claims to represent 80 percent of the Industry.
This Industry is intimately related to thie Glass Container lIndus-
trry and a number of plants have their production divided between
these two Codes. For that reason the hour and wage provisions of
this Code have been made to conform with the hour and wage pro-
visions of the G~lass Container Code.
The maximum hours permitted under this Code are forty (40)
hours per week, as averaged over a period of thirteen (13) weeks,
provided, however, that in no case shall any employee be permitted
to wCork in excess of forty-eight (48) hours during any one week.
For clerical and office employees a maximum is permitted of forty
(40) hours per week averaged over each four (4) weeks' period and
not in. excess of forty-eight (48) hours in, any one week.
The minimum wage is forty cents (404)r per hour, unless the
hourly rate for the same class of work onz July 15, 1929, wsas less
than forty cents (400) per hour, in which case the minimum wage
shall be not less than the wages paid in July 1929, and in no case less
thran thirty cents (304) per hour.
The outlets for the products of this Industry are wholesalers, job-
bers, retailers, and various manufacturers of other products who use
glass in the fabrication of their commodities, including the manu-
facture of storage batteries, signal devices, artificial illuminating
equipment, etc. The exports to foreign maarkrets are small coml-
pared with the total volume of business.
The demand for glass products is fairly uniform throughout the
year, due to the wide uses to which glass has been put. Due to the
fct that the American Glassware Industry is so interwoven withn
other industries throughout the country, an upturn in general busi-
ness conditions should be reflected favorably in this Industry.
On. the basis of the 40-hour week, 3,104 wage earners should benefit.
through. reemploy~ment. This increase represents 15.08i70 which will.
bring the total number of employees up to 23,797.
The value of commodities produced by the 8American Glassware
Industry aggregated during 1929, $90,865,936. During 1_931 product
value declined 32.2 per cent under the 1929 total, or to $631,633,709.

The D~eputyr Administrator in his final report to me on said Code
having found as herein set forth and on the basis of all the! pro-
ceedlingrs in this matter;


I find that--
(a) Said Code is well designed to promote thle policies and pur-
poses of Title I of the National Industriall Recovely Act, includlingr
removal of obstructions to the free flow of intrltalte and foreign
commerce which tend to diminish thne amount thetre~of anrd w-pill pro-
vide for the general wtel fare by pr~nromtin g the orran izationl of inrdus-
try. for thle purpose of cooperantive action among the trande groups,
by inducin~g alnd malintainingr unitedl action of In~labo and management
under adequate governmental sanctions and supervision, by elim-
in ating uin fa ir competitive pract ices, by promioting the fullest possible
utilization of the present productive capa>cityS of indu~stries, by avoicd-
mng undue restriction of production (exccept as may be tem~poralrily
required), by increasingr the consumption of' industrial andlc agrienlI-
tural products through incre~asing purc'ha1sing power, by redlucingr
and relieving unemnploymntn by imnprovingr standards of labor, andi
by otherwise rehabilitation industry.
(b) Said. Industry normally emplloys not more than 50.000 emp-
ployees;; and is not classified by me as a major industry.
(c) The Code as approved complies in all respects withl the p~erti-
:nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without, limnitation
Subsection (a) of Section 3, Surbsection (a) of Section 7, and Sub-
section (b) of Section 10 thereof; and that the applicant association
is an industrial associntion truly r~eprlesentativet3 of the aforesidi~ In-
dustry; and that said Association imnposers no inequitable restrictions
on admiission to memlbershipp therein.
(d) T'he Code is not de~signedl to and will not permit mnonop~lie~s
or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Code is not designed to and will not e~limninate or oppress
small enterprises a~nd will not operate to discriminate Igalinlst them.
(f) Those engagred in other steps of thert economic process hav~\e not
been dep~rived of the right to be heard prior to appr~oval of said Code.
This I~ndustry has cooperated in a most Satisfactory mannI1Ier within
the Adminristra~tor inl the preparation of this Code. From evidence
adduced during thisz hea~ring and from recommendarl~tiolns andJ Ireports
of the various Advisory Boards it is believed that this Code as nowFl
proposed and revised represents an effective, practical1, equitable solu-
tion for this IndustryT and for these reasons this Code has been
