Main St. BLYTiiEVILLE, (ARK); COURIER NEWS EDSON IN WASHINGTON Rough Riding On The Rails liy 1'KTKH CDSON Coiirii 1 ! 1 News ('t)ri'i'spoiulrnl The Idea of "incentive payments" fur war Industry workers Is Ijc'lii)- loyed with in Washington's official planning circles as .wmflhlin; that will put more money in t!i« workers' pay envelopes, lu'lji combat Hie ))lg bad cost, or llvliiij, heal the UlUc Steel fnrmiila, IIICIM.W wnr production anil In ijenoi'iil reduce inn-public woe in Ihest; laugh times. This isn't to IK; confused with the Incentive payments for farmers, ivhini the Department of Ae- rliiUUnri! promoted a couple of jnontlis iiijo and kicked In (he head. This new brand of Incentive payment Is to apply to Industrial workers only. Hut 1 the War Production fioard Is now rc- slmniiiii; Its Management - Ijflbor advisory setup, will probably do somolliiiiK about ipvllullrJiii; It* moribund Labor Production division, will create a new labor office under lUibei I K. Lamb, former chief counsel of the defunct Tolan House Committee iuvestitjatiny labor mlgriillon, to work with War Manpower Commission. Out of nil llils n.'0ig.i!ilxiii(f is stijjposcd to eoiiiti action, one part of which Is the idea of solllnt! management and labor on further use of the Incentive payment. An incentive payment by any other name is not as fair. In harsh, lire-war AinwJcnncsi;, back in Hie days before a closed shop became kniwn as "mniiik'imnec of membership," tlie theory of the incentive payment was known simply as "piecework." Catch on? VIEVKWWtK VS. SI'KEDUP Now piecework us such is one of the things that the labor statesmen have been trying to yet away iron) for years. Piecework Is associated with Jhe • spcednj), the iiclKLiix system, efficiency experts, stop-watches, rate cutting and all that stuff. Consequently, any effort to Like workers off hourly or daily pay rate bsisc.s and put lliciji (ill back on piece work Is going to meet with opposition. Tlic trick, therefore/ will be to get labor and management to agree that, there's a war on and something should be done about it, KO how ubuut adopting incentive payments for the duration? This may lie one of the first propositions put up to the newly constituted WP11 Management - Labor Council, made up of Ihc presidents of the C. J. O., A. ]•'. of L., U. S. Chamber of Commerce and National Association of Manufacturers. Reduce the ease for incentive pnyrnent.s to a simple example, and you come up with something llko this situation which actually developed last summer: The wife of a leaning, well-to- do rili/en Jn an Ohio town KO( patriotic and went lo work in (ho locnl canning factory'at tlie height of the lomato harvest because the manager simply couldni got enough help to handle Ills war crop. The good lady—call her Mrs. Tiara—was assigned to peeling tomatoes, and was she lousy. One bushel a day was about all she could do, though working right next lo her was a nice ircsh country girl—call her Miss Nimble- finger—who could peel. four bushels a day and never cut a finger But— Under the l-'air Labor Standards net, cannery workers must be paid by liie hour, not by the bushel. .So Mrs. Tiara gets the same wages by law for jier one bushel thai is paid to Miss Nlnibleflngcr for her four, and Is that fair? THE SOVIET SVSTKM Tbi> same principle might apply to loading shells, making gas masks, liij'iiijj bt'lcks, riveting, sewing shirts. As the labor supply thins out, more and more unskilled labor will be used and It will be paid the same wages as the skilled. The advocates of the incentive payment plan say that there should be 1 a minimum basic wago for a given unit of work. Hut if any given worker can turn out two units of work in a normal shift, that worker gets double pay. . . This Is not necessarily cruel cap- Hailitn, grinding workers to the bone, if you can stand a little dose of Soviet propaganda—from each according to Ills ability, lo each according to his labor—it might lw recorded that the Russians have geared up their war production in just this-way. There is a standard unit of daily production for every class of work -— plowing ground, making bread, making bullets. The workman who turns out a unit and n Jinlf n dny gets pay and a half. The extra producers are the StakJiaiiovltcs. (lie heroes of the production line who gel their medals just iikc soldiers, as well as extra pay. That's the way the Soviet gets production. In the United States, the incentive payment Is not unknown, and a number of war Industries have bonus plans of one type or another. Most notorious are the records of some of the Cleveland rugged Individuals, like Jack nnd Hclnlii, J. p. Lincoln of Lincoln Electric, whose workers make $5000 a year and up and are feel- Ing no pain, nut the professional labor unions don't like the Idea and it will be a job lo sell them on it, even as. a war measure.
