ACT

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1963

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,

SUBCOMMITTEE No. 3 OF THE
COMMITTEE ON THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA,

Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met, pursuant to notice, at 10:04 a.m., in room 445-A, Cannon House Office Building, Hon. Abraham J. Multer (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding.

Present: Representatives Multer and Springer. Also present: James T. Clark, clerk; Donald Tubridy, minority clerk; and Leonard O. Hilder, investigator.

Mr. MULTER. Good morning.

We have met this morning to consider H.R. 8423, a bill 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.

(H.R. 8423 follows:)

(H.R. 8423, 88th Cong., 1st sess.) A BILL 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 Be it enacted by the Senate and

House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the District of Columbia minimum-wage law, approved September 19, 1918 (40 Stat. 960), as amended, is amended (except to the extent provided in section 3 of this Act) by striking out sections 1 through 23, inclusive, immediately following the designation "ŤITLE I-MINIMUM WAGES” and inserting in lieu thereof the following:

"FINDING AND DECLARATION OF POLICY

"SECTION 1. (a) The Congress hereby finds that there are persons employed in some occupations in the District of Columbia at wages insufficient to provide adequate maintenance and to protect health. Such employment impairs the health, efficiency, and well-being of the persons so employed, constitutes unfair competition against other employers and their employees, threatens the stability of industry, reduces the purchasing power of employees, and requires, in many instances, that their wages be supplemented by the payment of public moneys for relief or other public and private assistance. Employment of persons at these insufficient rates of pay threatens the health and well-being of the people of the District of Columbia and injures the overall economy.

“(b) It is hereby declared to be the policy of this Act to correct and as rapidly as practicable to eliminate the conditions referred to herein above.

"DEFINITIONS

“Sec. 2. As used in this Act"(a) 'Board' means the Minimum Wage and Industrial Safety Board established by Reorganization Order Numbered 36 promulgated on June 16, 1953, pursuant to Reorganization Plan Numbered 5 of 1952;
