the basis of all the proceedings in this Matter:
I find that:
(a) The amendments to said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of

obstructions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce
which tend to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for
the general welfare by promoting the organization of Industry
for the purpose of cooperative action of labor and management
under adequate governmental sanction and supervision, by elimi-
nating unfair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possi-
ble utilization of the present productive capacity of industries,
by avoiding undue restriction of production (except as may be
temporarily required), by increasing the consumption of industrial
and agricultural products through increasing purchasing power,
by reducing and relieving unemployment, by improving standards
of Inbor, and by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation

.section (b) of Section 10 thereof.

been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons, these amend!lnents have been approved.

rate than is required to provide the same earnings for the hourly work
week herein established, than was received for that class of work by
such employee for the longer full time work week prevailing as of
July 1, 1933. All piecework rates shall be increased above the rates of
July 1, 1933, so that earnings based upon piecework rate for the

for such work shall be arrived at on an equitable basis with the rates
prevailing in that factory.
Any member of this Industry may change an employee's method of
compensation from a piece rate to a time rate, or from a time rate to
a piece rate, but in no case shall any employee be deprived of any of
the benefits received under the provisions of this Code, nor shall his
full time weekly compensation be reduced by such change. No mem-
ber of the Industry shall reclassify the duties or occupation of an
employee so as to defeat the purposes of the Act or of this Code.
Article V is hereby amended by adding thereto a paragraph num-
bered 8, to read as follows:
8. Any member of the Industry, either an individual owner, mem-
ber of a partnership or corporation, performing the duties of an

the twenty-fifth of a month may be billed as of the 1st of the follow-
