SIR: The Code of Fair Comipetition for the Wa.shing and Ironing
Machiinc Manufacturing Industry, as approved by the President on
November 4, 1033, provide, in Article IV, Subsection F. as follows:
"Not later than February 1, 1934, the Adminiii.trator shall deter-
mine what rate of overtime pay shall be paid in this Industry on
the basis of .-titil.s on overtime hours worked in the Industry to
be furnished by the Industry to the Administrator not later than
Jana111 ry 15, 1!:1.-"
The Deputy Administrator has recommended that the provisions
of Article IV, Section F of the above Code, be stricken tlherefroim,
and the following provisi,,o., substituted thenrfor:
"Employees permitted to work in excess of forty (40) 1holii per
week and eight (8) hours per day under the provisions of Section
B, paragraphs 1 and 3, of Article III shall be paid not less than
one and one-half times their normal rate for all hours in exclr- of
forty (40) hours per week and eight (8) hours per day."
The purpose of this aiiunli.diiv.nt is based on the funldaimlental
principles of the Act, and ,.iencourages the employment by employers
of additional personnel rather than such ti1mployt.rs prolol gingi the
daily or weekly working hours of those now employed by them.
The Deputy Administrator in his report to me on said aillendlllllcit
to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the bisis
of the proceedingsi in this matter:
I find that:
(a) The amendment to said Code and the Code as aulended are
well designed to promote the policies and purp,.se-, of Title I of the
Nationl;l Industrial Recovery Act and will provide for the general
welfare by promotling the org-nuizat ion of industry for the puirpo-c of
cooperative n;ition among trade groups, by inducingi and imaintaining
united action of labor and management un11dr adequate gv\'ern-
iim i ta sanction and supervision, by eliwi iiltii,.ng" unfair competitive
pr ntices, by promoting the fullest po,-sible uitili::ation of the present
productive capacity of the Indu-triei, by avoiding undue restrictions
of production (except as may be temporarily required), by increa.'siig
the consumption of indiistrial and agricultural products through in-
,'rcaing punlri.i-hing power, by reducing and reli\eing unemploy-
I,.ent, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rchaibiliitat-
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
inent pIrovisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation
Sulsect.ion (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and Subsec-
tion (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Amiendmnent. and the Code s aineimende are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(d) The Amendmerll nt, and the Code as ameiillndd are. not designed
to and will not elimin;ltr or opprel .-niall eterlpri.-e and will not
operate to discriminate against tlheil.
(e) Those engagi.ed in other steps of the economic pro''ess have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reias-in.-, therefore, I have approved the Aitrendlclent.
