ARTICLE V--Cmon LABOR

ECONOMIC EFFECT OF THE: CODE

This Code covers a) producing industry in which seasonal peaks
largely have been eliminated so that average figures present an
unusually accurate picture of conditions. Em-ploy~ment fell steadily
from a high of 20,000 in 1919 to 13,500 in 1932 in the face of steady or
even increasing volume of output. Obviously such a condition
reflects a period of mechanization. Basic processes now appear to
be largely machine operations but there still remains a considerable
quantity of light hand labor in wrapping and packaging, which labor
will be replaced but slowly by machinery if labor rates for suchl work
are not too high. This situation warrants thae differential for these
operations contained in the Code, but I wish to call your attention
to the fact that the minimum rates for such work established in the
Code are not unusuall-y low.
With the stability of employment existing in this Industry, together
with early adoption of the Presidenrt's Reemployment Agreement
by its members, total employment in July 1933 was practically that
of 1929, although the average hours of work per week of 86%0 of the
employees was nearly forty-eight. The reduction of hours as provided
in the Code to an average of 40 per week with a penalty overtime
rate for hours over eight per day or 40 per week should increase total
employment to a figure better than that of 1929, which will mean a
reversal of the shrinking trend of the previous thirteen years.
I wish to point out thiat only about 1%j of this industry is in the
South. As the consequence, the total effect of the southern differen-
tial contained in. the Code is negligible, although its importance to
the exiisting factories in the South is tremendous. Certainly the
differential is not sufficient to make p~rofitablle a southern movement
of units of thze Industry.
FINDINGS
The Administrator finds that--
(a) The Code as recommended complies in all respects with the
pertinent, prov-isions of Title I of the Act, including, without limita-
tionl, subsection (a) of Section 7 and subsection (b) of Section 10
thereof ; and that--








(b) The applicalnt, grSoup imposes no inequitable restrictions on ad-
mission to mlemblership therein and is trul representative of the Soap
andt Gly3ceriine. Manufact~uringc Inzdustryg; and that--
(c) The Code as recommendedcc is not designed to promote monop-
olies or to eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not, operate
to discriminate against them~, and will tend to effectuate thes policy
of Tit~le I of the 'Nationil Indust rial Recovery Act.
It is recommended, therefore, that this Code be immediately
adop ted.
