Description

Excerpt from Fifth Annual Report on Union Scale of Wages and Hours of Labor in Massachusetts, 1914 Time-rates are calculated in various ways, but generally by the hour, day, or week. Thus, in the building trades, the wages are generally cal culated by the hour, while in most mills and factories a weekly rate pre vails. In this report the rate or unit shown is that reported by the union to this Bureau. In some cases the organizations have returned a rate per hour, day, and week, as well as an overtime and a Sunday. Rate, thus indicating that each rate has been established among their members. In other cases a rate for only one period has been returned, for an hour or for a day, and in such cases only the rate returned has been entered in this report, for the reason that the daily or weekly rates may not, in many instances, be computed accurately on the basis of the hourly rates. Frequently the agreements between employers and labor organi zations contain clauses to the effect that workmen after commencing work shall be paid for at least one-half day even though the hours actually worked may amount to less than one-half day.
