vaqced wage scale more than ten
The decision tomorrow will say
that since the 1920 wage award
there has been a decrease in the cost
of living and "the scale of wages for
similar kind. of work in other in
dustries has in general been de
creased." These two points were the
chief contention of the railroads.
Testimony was offered in the hear
ing, which began April IS and ended
May 16, to show reductions of 20 to
50 per cent in the cost of living.
Varying reductio'ns in wages, mostly
for common labor, were also cited
by the carriers. " The board be
lieves", the decision says, "that based
on the elements shown the decreas
es fixed are justified and required."
"Whatever may be said as to the
origin or contributing causes, there
has been and is a marked depression
in industry," the board says. "As a
result heavy financial losses have
been suffered, and many hundreds
of thousands thrown out of employ
ment and this loss of purchasing
power by Wiem has accelearted the
general depression by producing the
demand for the products they would
otherwise have purchased. While it
has been argued that the fall in
prices has not readied to any large
extent the consumer, it has without
question most disastrously reached
and affected the producers."
