Sta: This is a report on amendments to the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Floor anid WYall Clay Tile Mlanufacturing Industry,
a hearing on which amiendmnents was conducted in WaTshington on
the ninth of Ma~rcLh, 1934, in accordance with the provisions of the
National Industrial Recovery Act.
Ameli~/ndment~ No. 3.--This amendment provides for a southern wage
different~ial of 25C% in border to give justice to three plants which
are located in the Southi. The minimum wage rates prescribed b~y
the original code are approximately 10070 higher than the milni-
murm wage rates in etfeet in these plants in 1929, and approximately
50C% higher than the minimum wage rates prescribed in approved
codes for closely related industries. This amendment will correct
this ineqruity and permiit the re-employmnent of labor in these plants.
Amendmnen~t No. 11.--This amendment provides for at day of rest
each week for employees.
AmenllrdmeL~nt No. 1:?.--This amendment will prevent the improper
clnssification of emnployees as learners as a subterfuge for wage
Amaendmnent No. 13S.--This amendment will p~revent the improper
classification of employees as "' aged or disabled as a subterfuge
for wage c utting.
The Assistant Deputy Atdministrat~or in his final report to mle on
said amlendmnents to said Code having found as herein set forth and
on the basis of all the proceedings in this matter;
I find that:
(a) The amendments to said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstrue-
tions to thze free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose
of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and mamn-
taining united action of labor anld management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive practices, by: promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
tions of production (except as may be temporarily required), by
increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing pur~chasing power, by redlucing and relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies inr all recrpects with, the perti-
nent pr~ovisions of said Title of said A1~ct, including without limnita-
tion Subsection (a) of Setct lon 3, Subsection (a) of Section '7 andl
Sub~section (b) of Sect~ion 10 thereof.
(c) T~he Code emnpowTerss the Code Aulthority to present the afore-
said amnendmnents onl behalf of the industry as a whlole.
(d) The amendments and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit mlonopo'lies or mlonocpolistic~ practices.
(e) Ther amendments and the Code as :Ilmrtende are not designled
to and will not elimninate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discrimiiinate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic procccss hlave
nroti been1 dleprivred~ of the right to be heard.prior to alpprova: l of salid
amend men t.
For these reasons, therlefor~e, I have alppro~ved these amendmzents.
