DexEMBE 5, 1933. .1
The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SmR: I have the honor to submit and recommend for yur approval <-
the Code of Fair Competition for the Knitted Outerwear Industry.
This Code was proposed by the National Knitted Outerwear Asso--"
ciation, No. 1 Madison Ave., New York City.
The National Knitted Outerwear Association was founded in 1918 ':
and represents 55%-of the total number of plants in the United
States and 72% of the total volume. This association is organized
on a regional basis, with five separate local associations serving
regions in all parts of the United States. The association impose
no inequitable restrictions on membership.
The hearing was conducted in the Willard Room of the Willard '
Hotel in Washington on October 1S and 17, 1933. Every person who.
filed a request for an appearance was fully heard in accordance with
statutory and regulatory requirements.

EVIDENCE srMfED
The Industry comprises approximately 750 plants with an in-
vested capital of approximately $50,000,000. The annual sales for
the. year 1931 were approximately $112,000,000 as compared to the
sales in 1929 of $147,000,000.
The Industry, since August 1, 1933, has been operating under the
same wage and hour provisions as contained in the Code and pro-
vided under a substitute agreement to the President's Reemploymeat :s
Agreement. The application of these wages and hours increased
the average weekly wage from $13.59 in June and July 1933 to
$15.93 in August 1933, an increase of 17%.

PROVISIONS OF THE a ODE
The Code provides for a minimum wage of 35# per hour in the
Northern section of the Industry and 321/2f per hour in the Southern
section.
Productive machinery may be operated for two 40-hour shifts per 3
week with the provision that any employer may elect to operate one
shift per week and have the privilege of operating 48 hours per wee it
for two periods of 4 consecutive weeks each per year.
Employees may work not more than 40 hours per week nor more -:i
than 8 hours per day, except that when an employer elects to operate "
one shift only, the employees may work not more than 48 hours per ;..
week nor more than 9 hours per day.
Office employees may work an average of 40 hours per week over a
period of any 12 weeks, but may not work more than 48 hours in any .
one week. .A
(200) Q








r;': tJerime aDnove lu ours per weeir is to be paid tor at the rate it
j ntimeand.one third. Provision is made for the maintenance of differ-
tials between wages above the minimum. Provisions are made for
itg. anteeing sufficient pay to contractors to cover their wages plus
i;i:easonable allowance for the contractor's overhead.

HOME WORK

':CHome work is a major problem in this Industry, due to the wide
iiuiet y of woik -done. and- the .wide geographical distribution of
i.workers. Workers are located in both the Metropolitan centers
...id in country districts in all sections of the United States.
:... I.t is necessary to consider also the conflicting aspects of the
r ioblem, as represented by the possibility of low wages, long hours
.ialjd labor, and. unsanitary working conditions on the one hand, and
iippled, needy, widowed mothers and difficulty of obtaining
Iiined workers on the other hand.
p3;: m the evidence submitted and from independent investigations
.4iW::as evident that more time should be allowed for study of the
li lem. Accordingly a home-work committee has been provided
o ir in the Code to set equitable piece rates and to study the prac-
kticability of elimination of home work, insofar as possible.
i:: ..... INFANT'S AND,CHILDREN'S WEAR

-i-': eIJnfant's and Children's Wear Industry have submitted a Code
rit Cbompetition in which-they seek to include Infant's and Chil-
I E3t~ s knitted outerwear. As the Knitted Outerwear Code also
ib;ludes Infant's and Children's Knitted Outerwear, a stay is recom-
iii!::: ided for all manufacturers of Infant's and Children's Knitted
t"'ifirwear until a final determination can be made.


FINDINGS
I .fnd that-
r:'= -' ( ) This Code complies in all respects with the pertinent pro-
:;iiii: .Si0ns of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery Act, including
withofit limitation subsection (a) of Section 7 and subsection (b) of
:iA Section 10 thereof.
:.... (b. : The, National Knitted Outerwear Association is truly repre-
':'- titative of the Knitted Outerwear Industry and the Bylaws of this
I asciation provide no inequitable restrictions to membership.
'::() cThe Code.is not designed to promote monopolies or to elimi-
: at Aor oppress small enterprises and will not operate to discriminate
::::: ilst them, and will tend to effectuate the policy of Title I of the
I:::* Ft linail Industrial Recovery Act.
: rI rmcoml end that the Code be approved.
spi::ectfully,
: HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
