AMENDMENTS TO THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

MINIMUM WAGE LAW

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1963

U.S. SENATE,
SUBCOMMITTEE ON PUBLIC HEALTH,
EDUCATION, WELFARE, AND SAFETY OF THE
COMMITTEE ON THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA,

Washington, D.O. The subcommittee met, pursuant to notice, at 7:10 p.m., in room 6226, New Senate Office Building, Senator Wayne Morse (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding.

Present: Senator Morse.

Also present: Chester H. Smith, staff director; Fred McIntyre, counsel, Richard Judd, professional staff member; Joseph Goldberg and Milton Williams, technical advisers, U.S. Department of Labor.

Senator MORSE. The hearing will come to order.

The chairman is sorry for two things—first, that he was late. The Senate in the last 10 minutes adjourned, and I had the responsibility of performing some leadership work over there in connection with foreign policy matters. Again, I apologize for being late.

I am also sorry that it is going to be necessary for us to have a series of evening meetings on the pending legislation before my subcommittee. Members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee start tomorrow morning with the new markup of the foreign aid bill, and because of my opposition to that bill in its present form, and the long list of amendments that I have to offer to the bill, I cannot absent myself on any occasion from the meetings of that committee. Therefore, I told the staff of this committee that I will adjust my schedule to evening meetings, although it will inconvenience, I am sure, many witnesses, but I know of no other way of completing the business of this committee and of the Senate.

This is not the only committee that is meeting in the evenings. In fact, I think some of the witnesses here, particularly the Commissioner, have had to meet with the Senate Appropriations Committee in evening sessions.

But I will do my very best to accommodate my schedule to evening meetings, and start them at 7 o'clock, which will get us out relatively early.

We will proceed with public hearings on S. 860, to amend the District of Columbia minimum wage law to provide broader coverage, improved standards of minimum wage and overtime compensation protection, and improved means of enforcement.

S. 860 is similar to S. 3233, which I introduced in the Senate last year.

I request that S. 860 be printed in the hearing record at this point.
