REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The If h~ite Howse.
Sm~: This is a report of the hearirm on the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Transparent Materials Converters Industry, con-
ducted in Washington on January 30, 1934, in accordance with the
provisions of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery Act.
HOURS AND WAGCES

This Code provides a 40 hour week for factory workers with a,
weekly tolerance of eight hours to be paid for as overtime, and limited
to 12 weeks per year. The usual exceptions are made in regard to
nonproductive employees. Office employees are limited to an average
of 40 hours per week over an eight week period.
Thle minimum wage rate for hourly paid employees is 384 per
hour for males and 33C per hour for females. Office employees will
receive a minimum wage of $15.00 per week in cities of over 500,000
population, $14.50 per week in cities between 250,000 and 500,000
population, $14.00 per week in cities between 2,500 and 250,000 popu-
lation and $12.00 per w~eek in towns less than 2,500 population.
OPEN PRICE PLAN

An open price plan of selling is provided, and selling below cost,
except to meet competition, is prohibited.
OTHEER PROYTSIONS

Provision is made for furnishing the Administrator with such
statistical data as he may require.
ECONOMIC EFFECT OF THE CODE

In 1929, with 10 manufacturers, the Industry employed about
200 persons. Inl 1933 the number of manufacturers had increased
to 56, employing ovrer 2,000 persons. The effect of the Code will be to
employ approximately 400 additional workers.
The increase in payrolls as a result of the Code will be about 10%o.
FINDING

The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said Code
having found as herein set forth, and on the basis of all the proceed-
ings in this matter
I find that:
(a) Said Code is well designed to promote the policies and pur-
poses of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery Act, including
(104)






105


removal of obstructions to the free flow of interstate andl foreign
commerce which tend to diminish the amount thereof andl will pr~o-
v-ide for the general welfare by prom'oting the organization of indlus-
try for the purpose of cooperative action among the trande grocups~
by inducing and miaintaining united action of labor and~ ma~nagemellnt
under adequate governmental sanction and superv-ision, by~ elimi-
nating unfair competitive practices, by promnoting the fullest possible
utilization of the present prorductive capacity of industries, by avouid-
ing undue restriction of production (except as mayS be tempilorarily
requiired), by increasing the consumption of industrial and: agrlicul-
tuiral products through increasing purchasing power, by redulcing
and relievingr unemployment, bty improving~ standards of labor, andl
by~ otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) Said Industry normally employs not mor~e thann 50!,000 em-
ployees and is not classified by mie as a major industry.
(c) The Code as approved complies in all respects with t~he per~ti-
nent p~rovisions of said Title of said Act, including without limiita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof; a nd that the applicant Associa-
tion is an industrial Association truly representative of the aforesaaid
Industry; and that said Association imploses no inequitable restric-
tions on admission to membership therein.
(d) The Code is not designed to and will not p~ermit monop"olies
or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Code is not designed to and~ will not eliminate or oppr'ess
small enterprises and will not operate to discrimiinate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economiic process have
not been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
Code.
For these reasons this Code has been approved.
Respectfully,
Hocu S~. JOHNSON,
A dm12in istr~t o r.
APRIL 4, 1931.
