Tobin, In testifying at a Senate Banking Committee hearing on amendments to the Defense Production Act proposed by Sen. Ful- brlght, said that to establish wa^e ininimums on a strict locality basis probably would knock down wage rates throughout tht country. The Walsh -Healy Act governs minimum wages paid by industries doing business with the government. The Secretary of Labor determines the prevailing minimum of an imlustry. In ti.r clarification of the word "locality" Fulbright argued that Congress meant locality to designate a local area. Tobin, he said, has interpreted locality to mean the continental United States. I" V,ri.-ht in: Kted the lau must be tvArified as lo whether minimums shall be based on a local 01 nation-wide basis. He said Tobtns' establishment of 'single nation-wide minimum wages for specific industries" has tended increase prices and wages and lo discourage small firms from trying to obtain government contracts. of ArkuiMi.
