president Approves

|. Code for Retail

SMeat Trade
-Agreement Affects Firms Whose
]Bttcher Branches Do More Than
50 Percent of Total Sales

^* The President has approved a Code for
the retail meat trade. It is binding on es-
%tablishments in which sales of meats account
:tor &ore than 50 percent of the total sales,
he National Industrial Recovery Board an-
)aounced. The Code became effective Decem-
'lber 31, 1934.
'."A separate schedule, amounting to a sup-
-plementary Code, was approved,for Kosher
ieat retailers.
Labor provisions of the Retail Meat Code
follow very closely those of the Retail Food
.and Grocery Code. Maximum working hours
re set at 48 hours a week, at minljnium
wages of $10 to $15 a week, depending on
population, with a $1 differential in the
5Oouth. Managers are exempt from themaxi-
mum hours provisions provided they receive
.eretain minimum salaries, also graded by
Population and region. Overtime allowance
.IJs made for holiday periods. The schedule
Mfor the Kosher trade establishes minimum
'wages of $25 in cities over 1,000,000 and $20
,elsewhere for employees engaged in cutting
.or preparing meats for sale, or assisting in
such work. Messenger boys and delivery
boys in the South are jot subject to the
!minimum wage provisions, but must receive
9at least 20 percent more than, the rate pre-
Avaling June 15, 1933.
:, The Code contains provisions making it
an unfair trade practice to misrepresent
.meat as that for which a definition of iden-
tity has been prescribed by the Department
of Agriculture, and which simulates such a
*product or fails to conform to such definition,
.and to sell meats which have been kept in
V 'storage below freezing longer than 30 days
exceptt as cold-storage meat. It also con-
'.tains the standard destructive price cutting
i provisions and perrisslon for the National
A.'ndustrial Recovery Board to establish mini-
,mum prices during any emergency found to
Exist. These rules, however, were stayed
::by the President's order of approval until
:the same provisions can be incorporated in
;a.odes governing the retailing of meat not
;.covered by this Code.
2.vThe letter transmitting 'the Code to the
,-President says: Provisions governing the
-advertising and selling methods for the deal-
.ers who will be governed by this Code should
b.e incorporated in the- Code -of fair compe-
hbtion for the retail food and grocery trade."
-..Other trade practice rules, which are not
',stayed, prohibit defamation of competitors,
commercial bribery, inaccurate advertising,
k.false invoicing, enticing employees, and sell-
'Ing except by net weight of 16-ounce pounds.
-..iThe President's order 'approving the Code
7,prescribes the constitution of the Code Au-
4thority to administer the Code. It is to
. consist of 11 industry members, 7 to be
.selected by the board of directors of the
..National Association of Retail Meat Dealers,
Inc.; 1 by the Federation of Kosher Butchers
pbf Greater New York, Inc.; 1 by the National
.,Association of Meat,-Poultry, and Game Pur-
V-.Veyors, and 2 by the National Industrial Re-
[.covery Board, to represent members of the
Trade not affiliated with those organizations.
f any memberships remain unfilled after 30
:.days the board may appoint representatives.

ment upon its total retail business for the
expenses of Code administration is hereby
recognized and established as follows:
"(a) Every retail establishment shall, ex-
cept as otherwise hereinafter provided, con-
tribute a single assessment to the expense
of administration of Its principal line Code
based upon Its total retail business either
(1) at the rate of assessment'approved for
such principal line Code, or (2) upon Its
principal line at the rate of assessment ap-
proved for the principal Line Code, and upon
each minor line at the rate approved for each
minor line Code.
"4. In order to effect the foregoing single
assessment principle, It Is further ordered:
"(a) Any. retail establishment which
makes payment to tile expenses of adminis-
tration of Its principal line Code Authority
as provided in paragraph 3 hereof, and duly
certifies such fact shall thereby be exempt
from any obligation to contribute to any
minor line Code Authority for the period for
which such payment has been made. Such
certification shall be made to any retail Code
Authority requesting contribution, and shall
state the date and amount of and the period
Covered by such payment.
"(b) An establishment, in computing such
payment to the principal line Code Authority,
may deduct, and shall receive credit, for
that portion of its retail business -and for
that period (to the extent that such period
is within the period of the current assess-
ment) for which payment has been made to
the expenses of administration of any other
Code Authority; provided that it shall cer-
tify to the principal line Code Authority the
name of each Code as to which credit is
claimed, the date and amount of payment
made and the period covered thereby.

(Continued from page 1)
I _______
the company had failed to establish "that
its position in the industry legitimately dif-
fers from that of other plants. However,
the 'trade school' in Martinsville may have
been originally conceived, It is obvious that
it is not, a 'school' within any accepted
usage of that term .The so-called students'
work side by side with the regular employees
in the factory. The product of their work
Is sold exactly as the product of any other
employees. There is 9o such thing in this
'school' as a definite period of instruction.
The whole system is geared to obtain a
maximum output of garments for saje. A
'student' could remain a 'student' forever
and never be placed on the pay roll of the
company as a regular employee. We are
not concerned with the questipa of policy
involved in the Code provisions providing
for hourly and weekly minima of compensa-
tion rather than piecework rates. In the
light of this accepted policy, therefore, we
can only view this so-called 'school' as a
device to pay certain employees lower wages
than those allowed by the Code for the cot-
ton garment industry."
The Kansas City manufacturers appealed
from an order signed by Acting Division Ad-
ministrator Prentiss Coonley on September
22, 1934, denying an application to be placed
in the southern division of the western area
of the dress manufacturing industry.
Under terms of the order employees en-
gaged in the mechanical processes of manu- -
facture of higher or lower priced garments
in the northern section of the western area
shall be paid not less than 70 percent of the
minimum wages established in the Dress
Code for the city of New York, and em-
ployees in the southern section of the west-
era area shall be paid not less than 60 per-
cent of the minimum wages established In
the Code.
On Jane 25, the Kansas City manufac-
turers petitioned wo place Kansas City in the
southern division instead of the northern di-
vision in order that manufacturers located
there could obtain an additional 10 percent
differential. The Dress Code Authority con-
ducted an investigation and in making its
comparison of operating costs in Kansas City
with operating costs in the primary market
in New York, It ruled that there was little
difference in direct labor costs between these
two markets. .
The manufacturers also contended they
were entitled to an additional 10 percent
wage differential because their cutting costs
are excessively high and they have not a
large supply of skilled labor to draw from
and must employ semiskilled operators who
are unable to earn the Code minimum at
piecework rates prevailing at their plants.
In handing down its opinion, the board
ruled :
We can readily understand that a small
firm, manufacturing a complete line of
dresses In a selected price range with small
cuttings In each style will incur a higher
unit cutting cost per garment. The appel-
lants admit, however, that they copy the

tract therefore, ,which contract shall spe-
cifically and completely set forth the adver-
tising or promotion services -(in such man-
ner that their specific character may be
understood by other members of the trade/in-
dustry and their customers) to be performed

precise consideration to be paid or given
therefore by said member, the method of de-
termining performances, and all other terms
and conditions relating thereto."
The following are examples of provisions
for publicity which may be found workable
and desirable by parcCular industries:
Example 1. Immediately upon the making
of any such contract for advertising or promo-
tion services'by any member of the trade/in-
dustr.v a true copy thereof shall be filed by said
member with n confidential and disinterested
agent of the Code Authority (ns provided for
in this Codei, or, if none, then with'such an
agent to be designated by the National In-
dustrial Recovery Board. Said agent shall
maintain all copies of such contracts on file
until six t6) months after the termination
thereof and shall make the same available
at his office for inspection at all reasonable
times by all members of the trade/industry
and for all of their customers and shall dis-
tribtite a true copy of any such contract to
any member of the industry or any customer
who applies therefore and offers to pay the
cost actually incurred 'by the Code Authority
in the actual preparation and distribution
thereof; provided, that no such inspection or
copy shall be permitted or made available
to any person until permitted or made avail-
able to all members of the industry and their
customers, ns aforesaid. Upon request said
agent shall furnish to the National Inrus-
trial Recovery Board, or any duly designated
agent of said board, copies of any such con-
Example 2. "Immediately upon. thejmaking
of any such contract for advertising or pro-
motion services by any member of the trade/
industry a true copy",th6reof shall be field
with a confidential and disinterested agent of
the Code Authority (as provided for in this
Code), or, if none, then with such an agent
to be designated by the National Industrial
Recnvely Board. Said agent shall thereupon
proceed to have copies of such contract pub-
lished in a journal or journals or other ap-
propriate medium of general circulation
among members of the trade/,industry."

styles created by New. -York manufacturers.
It follows naturally that a small manufac-
turer who duplicates In small quantities a
garment produced in large volume by a com-
petitor in another market cannot hope to
keep the unit cutting cost of the garment at
the same level. The disadvantage suffered
here should be compensated by a considerable
saving on other items which, although not
direct labor costs, must be Included in the
total cost of a garment. We are not inclined,
therefore, to conclude that the appellants'
petition Is justified merely by reason .of the
higher cutting costs."

The fundamental cyclical movements in th6 textile machinery manufac-
( duringg industry can be visualized without much difficulty by observing the
behavior of the three operating indexes in the lower half of the, chart. The
:. :relatively nioderale seasonal movements tend to be obscured by the. more
.:: 'violent changes in the basic conditions of the industry.' Thus it is fairly
apparent that the industry passed the crett of the wave of prosperity around
'+'Jjuly 1929, and that the depression deepened without, any considerable. inter-
uption until July 1932.. Since then a substantial recovery has ensued.
1' Although a partial relapse from the spectacular recovery of' 1933 left the
^^^October' 1934 level, of man-hours considerably below that of a year ago; it

'typical of producers' goods industries.
A.caretul study bf each series and the relationships between them yields
furtherr conclusions which are helpful in judging the position of the textile
l'achinery0' manufacturing industry. In the upper section of the chart, are
R'lthtee curves.' data for which were obtained from the Bureau of'Labor Sta-
.. tistids. The average number of hours worked per week increased from ap-
proximately 22 hours at the low of the depression in July 1932, to 44 hours
lin.'Juy 1D33, as a result of improved conditions in the various textile indus-
tries. Although activity in textile machinery manufacturing was well sus-'
UlL -tamed throughout the third quarter of 1933, the average number of hours was
-reduced rather sharply to 37 or 38 hours, and remained near that level until
g'3'. May'1934. The industry experienced a set-back beginning with June 1934,
"with the result that the average number of hours worked per week declined
So 33 hours in October.
L'.; he average' hourly wage in the textile machinery manufacturing indus-
.v 'try at the mid-1933 low wa's around 52 cents per hour. The decline was
c eked in June 1933, the month in which thle National Industry Recovery
Act' was passed, and before the end of the year the hourly wage' rate had risen
-.,:nearly 12 cents to approximately 64 cents. The latest figure of 62 cents per
.hour is for October.
The series covering average weekly wages is available for a longer period
t han average hourly wages and the average number of hours worked per
t week. In 1929 the average weekly earnings per employed .worker were close
; to $30 per week, but at the 1932 low was less than $14.50 per week. Between
July 1932 and July 1933 the average weekly earnings per worker rose more

ber of hours worked, but in October 1934, it still was over $20 per week. This,."
weekly wage was about 30 percent lower than the average in 1929, but ,n
terms of real wages", which allow for the decline of more than 20 percent.^
in the cost of living, the October weekly wage was equivalent to about $26 i:`.,
terms of 1929 prices.
The indexes of the number employed and average weekly pay rolls,.
together with estimated weekly man-hours, are also based on data furnished!
by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. All three series are shown in the lower, j
half. of the chart. The indexes of employment and pay rolls have been'.;.
adjusted by NRA to the 1933 census totals. It is from these three series:
that the best clues can be obtained as to operating conditions in the industry.-!
The number of workers employed in July 1932, was 40 percent of the,
1929 average, but the number more than doubled by Septembei ,19.3,3, when
the index was close to 87 percent of 1929. The latest available figure, fori'
November 1934, was about 67 percent of the 1929 average.
No statistics are available covering the production of textile machinery,i,
but the curve representing ,nan-hours should indicate the physical, volume!
of production in the industry fairly' well for short periods. The relatively'
greater fall in man-hours than in employment in early 1932 was the result|
of reducing the average number of hours worked. This situation was rerl:
versed between July 1932 and November 1933, during which period total map-.
hours increased over 250 percent. Beginning with July' 1933, however, the9
employment index has gained on the man-hour curve largely as a result of'a.
share-the-work policy. This policy apparently had. its greatest effect about;
July 1933, when the average number of hours was reduced while total man-|
hours were still increasing. .:
Since the average weekly wage has risen considerably' since July 1932, the...
index of total weekly pay rolls increased much more rapidly than the index.'
of employment. In November 1934, total pay rolls were only 45 percent of0
their average in 1929.. The total real purchasing power of labor in the indus-
try in November was probably not much greater than 55 percent of the ave '
age in 1929, after allowing for changes in the cost of living,. .
The products of this industry are consumed by the various branches of.
the textile manufacturing industry, and consist of such machines as card,
combs, spindles, loomns, etc., as well as machinery for finishing textiles. Thbe
recent improvement in the textile industries after the strike was ended ial,.
September is an encouraging development from the standpoint of potential:
demand for textile machinery.. On the other hand, the textile machinery:
manufacturing industry appears to be regressive, for employment and pay
rolls at the 1929 peak did not quite equal the early 1926 levels.
