REPORT TO THE: PRESIDENCY
T~he White House.
Sm: This is a report on Chapter XX~III, the Construction Niews
Service Chapter of the Code of Fair Competition for the Cornstruc-
tion I~ndustr~y, which waI~s approved by y~ou on January 31, 1934, and
which is d~escr~ibed as Chapter I.
This Chapter is a revision after public hearings conducted in
W~ashtington onl Mayr 8, 1_934, ini accordance with the provisions of the
National Inldustr~ial Recovery Act. This Chapter amplifies Chapter I
but applies specifically to the Cons~trulction News Service Division
of the Construction Industry.
PROVISIONS FOR HOTJRS AND WAGES
The hIours set forth in Chapter I of the Construction Code as
approved by you on January 31, 1934, are applicable to this Code.
The proposed minimuil~m wages of Chapter XXIII, although slightly
lowert1 than the wage provPisions of Chapter I, the Code of Fair Comn-
petition for the Construction Industry, will, according to the' statis-
tical analysis of the Division of Research and 1Planningr, increase the
w-eekly earnings of 105 out of 5'73 employees, or slightly over 1870 of
the total number of employees in this industry.
ECONOMIC EFFECT OF THEE CODE
According to the statistical analysis of the Di~vision of Research.
and Planning, the proponents of the code estimated that there were
in 1929 tenr establishments engaged~ in this industry, with an estimatedl
capital investment of about $8il0,000l. For the year 1933 it has been
estimanted that there were eighteen firms engaged inl the industry with
a enpital investment, approximately the same as in 1929. The esti-
mlatedl business volume for this year was $2,679,000.
Although this indullstryS is smalnl it is reasnabnlle to predict that thre
establishment of uniform. rates of pay, uniform hours of work, im-
pr~o-ed~ condtitions of employment and the prohibition of unfair trade
practices will be benleficial to both the employers and employees of
The D3epnlty Acdministrator in his final report to the Naltio-nal

be temporarily required), by increasing the~ consumption of Industrial
and agriulturall Prod~ucts through increasing purchasing po~werb
reducing and rehierin g unemp1 loyment, byT Improving stand ards o
