JWEATHER! r T T, ,r .1 cloudy to- night and Sunday; cooler Sunday east and south; low Icmperalurcs tonight IS to 48. Many industrialists have op- posed the wage guarantee idea on the ground they would lose a great deal of money if required to continue ,.aying wages for as long as a year to workers they had to lay off. Latimer's report held that even in most seasonal industries, wage guarantees can be granted with- out increasing costs to employers by more than six per cent if co- ordinated with the existing sys- tem of stt'.e unemployment com- pensation. Action Urged The report urged that the fed- oral and state governments take broadening present un- employment compensati. .1 bene- fits and extending special tax ex- emptions to encourage more widespread acceptance of the guaranteed wage plan. "The study has rocognized that the guaranteed wage system is nol a panacea for the insecurity of our economic system, that it cannot '.i and of itself eliminate the flucluations in the economic sy the report said. "On the olh-. hand, it is quite clear that widespread wage guarantees can make a substan- tial contribution to the stabiliza- tion of the economy through the stabilization of wage earner in- and hence of consumer ex- penditures." Other Factors Recognized The report recognized that oth- er factors roust be considered "beyond the immediate expendi- tures for consumer goods of the of guaranteed wages." It disclosed that a companion to the plan's "over-all economic being completed. This phase of the study is be- ing done by Professors Alvin H. Hansen of Harvard, former eco- nomic adviser to the federal re- serve board, and Paul A. Samuel- son of Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The report said that reserves in the slate unemployment com- pensation funds are large enough to warrant increasing the bene- fits jobless worker may receive, both as to amount and duration of payments. It suggested to a week for 26 to 30 weeks. Room for Supplements But even these increased rates, the report said, would leave "ample room for voluntary sup- plementation of benefits" by guaranteed wage plans initiated by business. The report noted that at least JHti guaranleed wngc plans were in opurntion in curly 1946 and said the majority of them pledge paymenl of full pay for a year. Besides affording "security for the it added, the plans achieve economies for employers because of "improved labor rela- tions" resulting in "a higher rate of productivity." The study was an outgrowth of a case before the former-war la- bor board in which the CIO Steclworkcrs union asked for a guaranteed wage plan. The WLB turned the union down but rec- ommended that the late Presi- dent Roosevelt have a study made of the whole idea.
