Potential purchasing power in Lawrence county took a long step forward over the week end with the announcement that the code for the steel industry and its allied finches had been presented, and the var- ious steel company announcements of a 15 per cent increase in wages. No official announcement has been received by D. S. Pyle, general manager of the Shenango and New Castle Works of the American Sheet and Tin Plate Company, but the statement that the increase affects all subsidiaries of the United States Steel Corporation is taken to mean increase will affect..sal- aried and hourly employes here, with similar increases for tonnage employes according to. the an- nouncement from New York. Affects Four Plants I In the county the wage increase would affect an enormous number of men, if it goes down the line of the entire steel industry. The plants in Dawrence county which would be affected are the Shenango and New Castle Works of the American Sneet and 'Tin Plate Company, the Shelby plant of the National Tube Com- pany, in Ellwood City, and the G. W. Johnson Limestone Company quarries in Hillsville. Under the code which was pre- sented to General Hugh Johnsor. on Saturday, by Robert P. Lament, president of the Iron and Steel In- stitute, no specific control of out- put is thought necessary because the industry feels that the elimination of unfair practices'will automotical- ly correct any.over production. The labor rats provided in the code presented pi'ovides a maximum of 40 hours per week, no child la- bor, a minimum of 25 cents per hour in the Southern territory and 40 cents per hour in the Pittsburgh ana Youngstown districts for common labor. All other classes of employes aside from common labor will re- ceive a 15 per cent increase over their present rate of wage.
