This is a report on the Public Henring on Amendment No. 92 to

The amlendmlentt establishes a lower hourly minimum wage for female
Ilabo: empiloyer d by manuifacturersr subject, to thle jur~isd~iction of the
Pacific \'eneer Sub-D~ivision of the Ciode. The evidence submitted
to, mie at thle Puiblie Heai~rin establishes thle necessity for this reduc-
tioni in order to insulre thatb the employerss affectedl will be able to
comp>et~e with mainufacturers~ of fibr~e conltainers. The minimum wagre
p'rescribed b~y the amendment representsi a substantial increase in the
rantes thaut formllerly prevailed; in the industryg and exceeds the statu-

of cooperative action among trande groups, by inducing anid main-
taining united actio-n of Inbor and management under a equate gov-
er~nmiental sanction anid supervision, by elimmanting unfair competi-
tive practices, bcy promo~tingr the fullest possible utilization of th~e
pr'eiint~ productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
tionsr of pl~-rouction (except as may be temporarily required), by in-
er~easmg thle consumption of indulstrial andi agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-
em~ploymnent, by improv~in standards of labor, andl by otherwPise re-
(b) The C'ode as amendredl comp~lies in all respects w~ith the perti-
nenit pr1ovisions of said Title of said Act, including without limnita-
