'.I 0. dL I
TS--Artlcle IV, section 1, of the Code
r' competition tot the bedding manu-
bg industry provides 'in part: "No
'Yee shall receive a lesser rate than is
ed to' provide the same earnings for
burs of labor per week as was received
Pt-class of work for the longer work
Prevailing prior to June 1, 1933; pro-
"however, that no factory employee,
dro' remuneration Is based upon an
..or piecework, or incentive plan, shall
.e less than a minimum of 30 cents per
i.l.the South and 35 cents per hour in
Mo.lh; and further providing that all
4inenployees whose remuneration Is
P upon a weekly or monthly rate shall
bnot less than a minimum of $15 per
1 .*:, -

QUESTION.-Does the above provision
apply to pieceorkers and, if so, what is the
,method to be foUllowed in computing the
wages to be paid such workers -under said
section of said Code ruling?
RULING.-It is ruled that article IV,
section 1, applies to pieceworkers. The
method of.computing the wages of piecework-
ers in each individual plant is to multiply the
piece rate paid prior to June 1, 1933, by the
prevailing longer number of hours worked by
each class of pieceworkers in that individual
plant prior to June 1, 1933, and divide the
total thereof by 40. The result will be the
minimum piece rate required to be paid under
said section of the Code. Provided, however,
that no employee receive less than a mini-
mum of 30 cents per hour in the South nor
less than 35 cents per hour in the North.

committee on apprentice training only if the
employer enters into a written contract with'
the apprentice and agrees to the following:
1. The apprentice shall receive training for
a stated number of years, not less than 1 nor
more than 5.
2. The apprentice shall receive instruction
in general, and technical subjects for at least
144 hours per year.
3. The apprentice's hours of work'sand in-
struction, combined,, shall not exceed 44 hours
per week or the maximum hours fixed by
the Code for the industry.
4. The processes which apprentices are to
learn and the actual wage scale must be
stipulated in the apprentice's contract and
approved by the State committee. Advisory '
committees, composed of employers and em-
ployees in the different trades and occupa-
tions, may be consulted by the State com-
mittee-before these rules and regulations are
put into effect.
State committees on apprentice training'in-
delude 1 member each from the State Depart-
'ment -of Labor, the State Department of Vo-
cational .Education, the United States 'Em-
ployment Service, and the National Recovery
Administration; 1 or more representatives
of employers and a corresponding number of
members of the State Federation of Labor,
representing employees.
Regulations provide that all State commit-
tees on apprentice training must 'work in
complete cooperation 'with other existing
State agencies, and must also consult with
advisory committees to be established in
trades and industries where there is -a. de-
mand for apprentice training. These include
the following general classifications: Auto-
motive, aviation, building, ceramics, electri-
cal, foupdry, glass, chemniffal" Iron andj steel,
jewelry, machine, navy and shipyard work,
needle trades, power plants, pulp and paper,
printing, radio, railroad shops, service trades
and industries, sheet metal,"EhB9bWmaking and
repairing, sporting goods, textile, woodwork-
ing, and also miscellaneous classifications
.ranging all' the way from bacteriology, taxi-
dermy, and dental prosthetics to sausage
making, landscaping, and embalming.
The objectives of the program may be un-
derstood from the following statement of the
Federal committee:
"There is today a, great body of unem-
ployed youth clamoring for opportunity.
Apprenticeships cannot take care of all nor
would all of these boys and girls be willing
to bind themselves to the rigorous course of
training implied by' an apprenticeship. It
is, however, the purpose of this program to
provide opportunities for boys and girls, 16
years of age and over, to learn trades and
enter skilled occupations.
Th d"-program is of great significance both
to youth and to industry. It is the task of
those administering the program to see that
the apprentices are trained where they are
most needed and where future employment
possibilities are niost certain. Toe broader.
the apprentice's training, the greater is his
chance for continuous employment in his oc-
cupation nnd the more. readily can he adapt
himself to related lines of work, If this Is
made necessary by industrial changes."

"'the 20 percent decline in the cost of living, laborers in this industry are enjoy-
mng a purchasing power roughly: 25 percent above the level of 1931 and only
.10 percent below that of 1929. Hourly wage rates and average weekly wages
i:. have 'been comparatively constant.
i Scanning the chart in detail, we find in the upper section three curves
i'.based on data obtained for the most part through the courtesy of the Bureau
f. Labor Statistics. .In the case of employment and payrolls adjusted to the
83 ce:si&totais-rby NRA;the figures before the-year 1932, however, were
,i obtained after some minor adjustments to assure continuity from the National
.:: Industrial Conference Board. The curve of average hourly wages reached its
l..ow point in June of 1933. In the third quarter of 1933, at the time of the
p assage of the National Industrial Recovery Act, the curve shows a distinct
j, jump. At present average hourly wages are only, about 5 cents below the
fi figure for 1929.. The curve of average hours worked per week, on the other
hand shows a distinct rise in the spring of 1933, rising from about 37 in
|;:,-M'arch to 47 in June. In the third quarter of that year the number of hours
1..i .drropped to 38 per week. It is noteworthy that the increase in production in
the spring of 1934 was not accompanied by an increase in the average hours
!:.worked per week, but increase in employment.
Average weekly wages have not shown a very substantial increase since
: 1933. The average weekly wage is now 28 percent below the 1929 level or
f'' about $20.50, but it must be remembered that this represents an average pur-
",- chasing power of employed workers which is only about 8 percent lower than
in 1929.

': Accompanying the increase in sales which began in March of 1933, total
pay rolls increased more rapidly than employment until about June of that
-.. :year, since which time the movement of the two curves has been parallel.

S following period indicates a small increase in average weeldy wages.

of the physical volumeof production over short periods of time, and reflects.
activity oi goods in process, and on finished products. The sudden jlump' this index in the spring of 1933 was almost entirely the result of ai
sharp increase in the working week, accompanying the rapid rise in sales"
during the spring of 1933. .
The sales series was constructed from data reported to the Bureau of the'o
Census, and published in the Survey of Current Business. It covers the dod.
lar volume of 639 identical establishments. It is a combination of the sales,i
on the one hand, of paint, varnish, and lacquer by 586, identical firms .estiif
mated to represent 80 percent pf the. total sales of such products in'.th
industry, and on the other haji, of plastic paints, cold-water paints, :an'.
calcimine by 53 identical concerns estimated torepresent about 85 percent..,
the total. Total sales for the first 9 months of 1934 were about 16 percent
higher than in the corresponding period of 1933 and over 20 percent higher
than in the same months in 1932. In September of this year the dollar volumide
of sales, though still 40 percent below that of 1929, was higher than for anri
September since 1930. Inasmuch as paint, varnish, and lacquer prices are 156
percent lower than in 1929 the comparison in terms of physical volume is.
considerably less unfavorable, showing only a 25 percent decline. -
The combined index of wholesale prices of 23 paint materials and.. "
prepared paints as compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics is shown :A..
the bottom of the chart. The index fell steadily from 1929 until July 193 2 ;
when it reached the depression low of 30 percent below 1929. SubstantilV
recovery began to occur in the spring of 1933, continuing into 1934. In recent
months prices have been moving sidewise at a level still 16 percent beloi6
that of 1929. '.
Notwithstanding the substantial gains already made, the paint, varni"sh'.
and lacquer manufacturing ind stry is still operating (judging by n
hours) at a rate about one-third below the 1929 average. Although "be
demand for its products is in large part dependent upon new construction', t.I
part played by maintenance, repair, and preservation work is considerablkl
A more normal level of general business activity would stimulate the demand
for the industry's products from a number of sources, and might ree- ig
surprising amount of delayed maintenance and repair work.
