Fleming, wage- hour administrator, declared Thursday that agreements for the payment of overtime for Saturday ana Sunday work—simply because it is Saturday or Sunday—should be waived for the present to cut down 'week-end blackouts." The administrator referred to overtime payments, which are not required by law but are arranged for privately to cover the days at the end of the week. The wage- hour law merely requires the payment of time and a half for overtime beyond 40 hours a week. In a speech here at a meeting of service clubs, the administrator said: "Extra legal arrangements whereby .Saturday work must be paid for as overtime simply because it is Saturday, can hardly be justi- beyond 40 hours, fied now. "Overtime _-. whether it happens to fall on Saturday or any other day of the week, should be paid for in accordance with the law, but if the thirty-second to the fortieth hours of the work fall on-Saturday, I do not believe these eight hours should be counted as overtime. "The Saturday overtime penalty simply prolongs the week-end blackout and discourages the use of additional shifts." The building trades unions have long required payment of double- time for Saturday and Sunday work, but recently proposed to abandon the double-time requirement and apply only time and a half for week-end work. General Fleming said the weekend blackout in all industry should be eliminated by the employment of more men on 40-hour week schedules and use of multiple shifts to keep the operation going.
