In ralleslrine, Minimum Wage Law Criticized Waste of Manpower And Unemployment Blamed on Measure WASHINGTON, Nov. 13. (UP) — Tlin Southern Stale. 1 ; Industrial Council snld today Dial, any Increase in the present 40-ccnl-a.n- liour minimum wane would bring about a corresponding rise In unemployment. Tyre Taylor, genera) council for Die industrial group, told a House liitoor subcommittee yesterday tlmt "•tl ( higher ll>c timi'imum. the greater the number ol workers who are made unemployable." Enrlier witnesses have proposer that tlic minimum he boosted to 65 and even to 75 cents an hour. 'Ilic fnlr Jaoor standards act which provides a minimum wage and a 40-linur \vec.'k, cannot, assure a worker a standard of living at anj level, Taylor said. "All it .does and an 11 can do to Klve the covered employer choice of paying a worker a fix minimum or not hiring him," he said. Taylor called for repeal of boti the minimum wage and mnxlmun hour provisions ol the act, on the grounds that they discourage workers from improving their skills. "The only realistic approach to the objective of improving the lower-paid worker's economic status not a minimum wage law at all," c said, "out a program designed to rovide him with new skills and 0 Improve those he already has." Taylor said the overtime provl- iuus of the statute have caused 1 waste of manpower "Impossible to estimate." He said thai if an esll- nated 18.000,000 workers now on he 40-hour week Increased their stint, to 45 hours, there would'be a saving of 90,000,000 man-hours a week. Read Courier News Want. Ads.
