Excerpt from N. Y. State Hospitals Bulletin, Vol. 4: June, 1911 The item of wages, is one of the largest and calls for careful consideration. The largest subdivision of this. Item is for ward service and this conference stands strongly committed to the proposition that the employees in ward service are underpaid and that both the welfare of the serv ice and justice to a faithful and hard-working class of pub lic servants demand an increase in their salaries. To this view, the writer still strongly adheres and hopes that this needed increase will not be long delayed. Outside the ward service the rate of compensation is much more liberal and it may well be that here is a fair field for reasonable and discriminating saving, either in rate of compensation or number of employees. No general statement can cover' the case but the question is a proper one for investigation. It seems possible also to reduce this item of employees' wages by a greater use of patient labor. Much is now done in this direction. The employment of the patient is in itself a benefit and perhaps the incidental saving here mav be increased.
