SmR: A Public H~earing on the Code of Fiiair Com~petit~ion for t~he
Candle Manufacturing Industry and the Beeswax~ Bleachers and
Refiner~s Industry, submitted by the Candle Ma~nufactureris' Asso-
ciation, and the Anlrican BeeswaxJ Bleachecrs and Refiners Associa-
tion, located at 19 West 44th. Street, New Y~ork, N.YI., was conducted
in Washington on the 22nd of N~ovem~ber, 103~3, in. accordance with
the provisions of the Nationaal In-dustrial Recovery Act. These
Associations claim, to represent 90 per cent of th~e Industries.
The~ maximum hours perm~itte~d under this Code are fort y (4l0)
hours per week; excepted, however, are watchmelcn who shall be per-
mitted to work an average of forty two (42) hocur~s per week. Ex-
cepted also from, this provisions are persons emlployecd in, a mnag~erial
or executive capacityT who receive not less than thfirty fiveC~ ($:35.00)
dollars per week, commrcial travetling salesmlen, employees engaged
in emergency maintenance or emergency repair wrorkr, but it is p~ro-
vided that all such, employees engfaged in emergency workr shall be
comnpenlsated at the rate of time and one third their normal rate of
pay for all hours worked in excess of fortyv (40) hours per week or
eight (8) hours in any twenty four (24) hour period.
The minimum wage is forty cents (4~04) per hour; ecl~eptedl, how-
ever, are employees engaged m light and non-hazzrrdouls occupations
of the wicking, finishing and packaging departmnents wBho shall not
be paid less than at the rate of thirty cents (300s) per hourll. I~t is also
provided that there shall be Ino dliscr~imination1 in rates of p~ay by
reason of sex.
Wage earner em~ploymelnt declined 8.7 per cent from 19;'9 to 1931.
The Inge~st decrline. occurred during t~he months of Januar an D
comlber. For example, wage earner employment dulringa th mnt
o-f Jan lua y was 13.0 per cent below the sa me month in 1929, while
De1~cember was 13.6 per cent lower. The decline wpas quite irregular
thlrougrhout the year, ranging from~ a decline, of 2.1 per cent in June
to 13.6 per cent in December under the respective months of 1929.

The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said Code
havinga found as herein set forth and on the basis; of all the prc~l-eedl-
ings in this mnatter;
I find that---
(a) Said Code is well designled to p'romnote the policies and pur-
poses of Title -I of the Nat~ionlal Industrial Recover~ly Act, including
removal of obstructions to the free flow of interstate and foreign
commerce which. tend to dimin~ish~ the amount thereof and will pro-
vide for the general welfare by prompt ilgr the organization of in-
duls~try for the purprose of cooperative action among the trade gr'oups,'
by inducing and maintaining united nation of labor and ma!nage-
mlent under adequate gove~Irlnmentn] sanctions and supervision, by
eliminatinga unfair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest
possible utilization of the present productive capaceityr of industries,
by avoiding undue restriction of production (except as may be tem-
por~arily required), by increasing the consumption of industrial and
agricultural products through increasing purchasing power, byJJ re-
ducing and relieving unemployment, by improvinga standards of
Inbor, and by otherwise rehabilitatilgr Industry.
(b) Said Industries normally emlplov? not more than 50,000 emu-
ployees; and are not classified by me as major industries.
(c) The Code as approved complies in all resipec~ts with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including w~ith~olt~ limita,-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, S-ubsection (a) of Sc~ction 7, and
Scubsect~ion (b) of Section 10 thereof; and that the applicant asso-
ciations are indlustrial associations truly recpr~esenl~tate of the afore-
said Industries; and that said Associaitlonls impose no inequitable re-
strictions on admiission to mem~bershiip therein.
(d) T'he Code is not designed to and will not permit monopolies
or m~ono~polist~ic practices.
(e) The Code is not designed to andl will not eliminate or oppress
small enterprises and will not operate to discriminate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economicc process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to app~r~oval1 of said Code.
These ]Industries have cooperanted2 in a most satisfactory manner
with the Aidministrator in the preparation of this Code. From evi-
dence adduced during this hearing and fr~oml recommendations and
reports of the various Advisory Boards it is believed that this Code
as now proposed and revised represents an effective, practical, equi-
table solution for these Industries and for these reasons this Code has
