FAIR LABOR STANDARDS AMENDMENTS OF 1973
STATEMENTS ON INTRODUCED BILLS AND JOINT RESOLUTIONS
By Mr. Williams (for himself and Mr. Javits):
S. 1861, A bill to amend the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended, to extend its protection to additional employees, to raise the minimum wage to $2.20 an hour, and for other purposes. Referred to the Committee on Labor and Public Welfare.
MINIMUM WAGE BILL
Mr. WILLIAMS. Mr. President, today I am introducing legislation to increase the Federal minimum wage and to expand coverage of workers under the Fair Labor Standards Act. The bill I am introducing is substantially similar to the one which passed this body last year.
I ask unanimous consent that the text of the bill be printed at the conclusion of my remarks.
Mr. President, I will be brief. The bill passed by the Senate last year was a good bill, it was a responsible bill. It would have enabled workers who toil at the minimum wage to secure for themselves and their families a minimum level of decency. But, almost a year has passed now since the Senate acted last year. The cost of living is spiralling upward at an even faster rate than it was last year. It is imperative that Congress act and that it act with dispatch.
Because of this need for prompt action, I have consciously chosen to recommend to the Senate, through this bill, the same action it approved by a vote for 65 to 27 last year.
Under this bill, workers covered by the 1966 amendments to the Fair Labor Standards' Act or by these amendments including agricultural workers—will get the same increases as provided by the Senate-passed bill last year. Of course, those increases will come 1 year later by virture of the failure to enact the legislation last year. .
For the bulk of the workers covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act—that is, those covered prior to the 1966 amendments—although the first increase to $2 an hour will be delayed by last year's inaction, the second increase to $2.20 will come at the same time as proposed in Senator Percy's amendment, adopted on the floor of the Senate last year.
Specifically, if the Congress were to act before the August recess, workers covered prior to 1966 will get $2 an hour beginning October 1973—all dates are approximate—and $2.20 an hour beginning October, 1974. Workers other than agricultural workers covered by the 1966 amendments of this bill, will get $1.85 an hour in October 1973; $2 an hour in October 1974, and $2.20 an hour in October 1975. Agricultural workers will get $1.60 an hour in October 1973; $1.80 an hour
