Despite strong pressures from organized labor to boost the minimum wage by law to $2 per hour, there is some possibility that the Congress may not take action on the matter this year. Protests to the Congress from the independent business community may block passage inasmuch as this is the sector of the economy that ordinarily gives jobs to teenagers. The continuous field survey of the National Federation of Independent Business with reports now in from 52,060 indicate that independent business in the nation would currently be hiring an average of one teenager each if not restricted by the present $1.60 per hour limitation. This ratio varies from region to region. In the Pacific states for example, the average is about a half of one teenager per respondent, in New England, it is at the ratio of one for one, and is lower for the more heavily in- dustrialized states. In the primarily rural areas, the ratio is substantially higher. The largest number of frozen teenage job opportunities, as perhaps to be expected, is in the retailing field where unskilled teenagers would be employed doing errands, washing windows, and other unskilled tasks. There would be, according to the survey reports, almost as equally a substantial employment demand among wholesalers and those engaged in the service trades. A typical comment comes from a California respondent who reports he would be currently employing five more teenagers but for the minimum wage. He says, \In my business, (fast food take out), I am convinced that if our Police Report Minor Mishaps On Saturday State Police reported a pedestrian-car accident at Madrid Saturday night.

Covey of RD 2, Potsdam, who received lacerations to the face. Operator of the second ear was Clinton C. Peck, of 78 Waverly St., Potsdam.

For further information come to a meeting any Wednesday evening at 7:00 at the United Helpers Home meeting room on the second floor. legislators would have to put up with, train, etc. young employees like I have to, they would be against raising the minimum wage. I have teenagers who have never worked before and I can frankly say, that they aren't worth anymore than the present minimum wage. If the scale is raised it is going to put many more of these youngsters out of work, it will put them on the streets where they will be expossed to more temptation and get into trouble. I am very much against any raise in the minimum wage laws. Persons who have qualifications make more than the scale, so by passing a law to raise the scale, you would only be making the employer pay more wages to a non- qualified person, and it would be more difficult for young persons to get jobs.\ . A New Jersey owner of a drive-in who claims the minimum wage law stops him from employing seven teenagers, says, \I feel that there should be some sort of relief from paying the minimum wage during a. training period. In ad- dition, many small businessmen who could hire teenagers to do jobs that grown ups do not want, do not do so because of the minimum wage. Paying a 14 year old $1.60 an hour for doing practically nothing is not right.\ An upper New York state retailer who says he would hire six more teenagers says, \I cannot afford to pay $1.60 per hour to clean sidewalks and pick up papers.\ While laborleaders take the position that lower wages for teenagers tends to create conditions wherby older workers are supplanted, the surveys indicate that in the current situation of mounting unemployment, the independent en- terprises are not hiring the older workers as they have no need for their skills, and cannot afford to hire un- skilled teenagers at the present minimum wage. This deadlocked situation, it is felt, may cause Congress to have some second thoughts about further aggravating the teenage employment problem. Wage And. Price Freeze Needed, Javits Declares BY ESTHER VAN WAGONER TUFTY Washington — \Nothing short of wage and price freeze can now deal with the grim economic situation\ said Senator Jacob Javits, (R-N.Y.) today, \as prices rose at an adjusted annual rate of 7.2 percent and unemployment reached a nine-year high.\ This was the opinion of the senator, the ranking Republican member of the Joint Economic committee, after the announced increase for May in the consumer-price index. The senator added \the an- nouncement came as a blow to the American consumer and housewife, whose dollar now buys only 83 percent of what it did as recently as 1967, just four years ago.\ To this New York Republican the announcement proves that the ad- ministration's 'game plan', while laudable in principle, falls far short of what this country needs to bring back a normal economic pattern and the path of balanced, non-inflationary growth. \Although the economy needs more stimulus in order to provide enough jobs for our growing labor force, the ad- ministration's hands are tied by the fact that any significant stimulus would create still worse inflation\ said Javits. He intends soon to introduce legislation to combine a wage and price freeze which the President has the authority to implement along with guidelines for non-inflationary behavior. He's aware of the arguments against such a course of action, but is convinced a stage has been reached where nothing else will halt the continuing trend of inflation and unemployment.
