Janitors' Demand :;
For 50 Per Cent Raise
v In Wages Refused
CrJcago, Nov. 24. Janitors, many,
of whom, are not citizens of the
United States and can barely speak
its language, are demanding an in
crease in , wages, averaging 50 , per
cent. It 'has been shown that some
of them, are makiiif:;$5,000 . a year
and ride to and from their work in
costly automobiles. , .
A committee of the, real' estate
board today refused the demand and
put the ease up to the Chicago Ten
'ants' association, which has a mem
bership' of 20,000. Without excep
tion, .the tenants are against any
further increases to the janitors and
today said they woujd shovel their
own coal and clean their own apart
ments rather 'than submit to any
further gouging. If the demands of
the janitors are- granted the addi
tional expense would -be ' passed
along to the tenants. It was shown
that in several flat buildings, the
janitors are. making $600 a month,
aside from the numerous bribe the
tenants are forced to pay him to
get any work done. The proposed
advance would bring the straight
salaries of these janitors unto4j!l,000
