TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1954 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Wage Hikes Warranted, Says AFL But Economy Not So Well Off As GOP Claims LOS ANGELES (AP) — The AFL says economic conditions are worse than the Eisenhower administration admits but good enough to "warrant substantial wage boosts for workers." The annual AFL convention ended on that note yesterday after 10 days of sessions. Delegates approved a series of new blasts against the Republican administration and voted a political statement saying the outlook for electing "labor-endorsed candidates to Congress appeared better than in any election since 1948." Saying that few unions are' negotiating new contracts without wage boosts despite the economic situation, the convention cautioned AFL unions "against being deceived by employers in a basically sound financial position who attempt to maneuver unions into abandoning wage increase efforts on grounds of the general economic downturn." "Even in a depressed and uncertain ecnomic atmosphere and with a relatively stable cost of living," the convention said, "wage increases are warranted to improve worker living standards and to keep pace with the economy's constantly rising level of productivity." Another convention resolution quarreled with Secretary ot Labor James P. Mitchell for a speech during the convention saying' that the nation is experiencing "the mildest contraction we have ever had in any postwar period." The convention said that the present "recession" is worse in many respects that the 1949 economic downturn. Mitchell's Labor Department was condemned for "not having a single trade unionist" among its top officials and for "progressive deterioration and ineffectiveness." Another resolution condemned Senator McCarthy (R : Wis) as "unworthy of the American tradition' and for "reckless disregard for Democratic-procedures." Kenneth J- Kelly, secretary- treasurer of the Massachusetts Federation of Labor, who proposed the McCarthy resolution, told delegates the senator is the Republican party's "No. 1 problem child." Kelly said he is "more interested in headlines than in eliminating breadlines" that cultivate Communists. ' • Despite convention addresses from Eisenhower and several of his administration leaders, one of the final resolutions summed up the AFL stand this way: "The AFL has specifically expressed its disappointment in administration .opposition to raising the minimum wage, in granting special tax concessions to business interests, in the tragic bungling of our foreign affairs, in the reckless contraction of our armed forces, in the strangling of public housing, in failure to take any positive steps to meet the nation's health needs, in refusal to eliminate any of the unfair provisions of the Taft- Hartley law, and in the apparent Satisfaction with stabilization of the economy at present low levels."
