5. EARNINGS AN HOURS OF W
D
ORK OF NONSUPERVISORY EMPLOYEES:
This study is designed to provide information on hourly earnings and weekly hours of work for both male and
female nonsupervisory employees and working supervisors for a payroll period ending nearest June 15, 1962.
The number of employees in each establishment for which earnings and hours data are reported should corre­
spond with the number of nonsupervisory employees shown in item 3(c) on page 1. The information requested
should be reported separately for each establishment and the establishment identified. Earnings data for food
counter, cafeteria, or restaurant workers in Department, Drug, or Variety Stores should be entered only on the
blue supplement provided. Data for all other employees should be reported in Item 5 of this form.
Report earnings and hours separately for each employee unless these data are identical for two or more em­
ployees. Do not report aggregate earnings and hours for several workers. For convenience of reporting for
employees paid on other than an hourly basis, columns 5 through 8 are provided. Data will not, however, be
published separately by various methods of pay. Instructions and examples for reporting the necessary data in
each column are listed below.

Column (2)__Use a separate line for each employee and enter ” 1 ,” unless two or more employees of the same
sex work the same number of hours during the selected week, and receive identical hourly or salary rates

or in part on commissions or bonuses (see examples 3, 4, and 5).
Column (3)— Enter the number of hours worked during the week of June 10 to June 16, 1962. Include hours
paid for sick leave, holidays, vacations, etc. These hours should relate to a 1-week period regardless
of the length of the payroll period.

Column (4)__Enter the base (straight-time) hourly rate. Premium payments for overtime work are excluded
from the survey and are not to be reported. This column may also be used to report earnings of employees
paid on other than an hourly basis if average straight-time hourly earnings are available.

Column (5)__Enter for each employee the straight-time earning's for the salary period (weekly, biweekly,
monthly, or semimonthly) ending nearest June 15, 1962. Include straight-time pay for overtime, but exclude
overtime premium. Do not include “ draws” against commission as salary.

monthly). Include hours paid for sick leave, holidays, vacations, etc.

Column (7)— Enter for each employee the total commission and/or bonus earnings, including “ PM’s ,” "Stims,”
or any special bonuses based on sales paid quarterly or oftener by the store. These earnings are to be

store employees receive both commission and bonus payments for an identical period of time, report the
s u p e rv is o r y

e m p lo y e e s
only the prorated amount of the bonus to the commission earnings that correspond to the commission period
b a s e d e n tir e ly
(see example 5). For employees paid an hourly rate or salary in addition to commissions or bonuses, it is

also necessary to complete column 4, or columns 5 and 6 (see examples 4 and 5).

and b o n u se s.

Column (8)— Enter the number of hours worked during the commission or bonus period. (The hours should
refer to the total hours worked during the period (weekly, biweekly, monthly, or semimonthly) and not nec­
essarily only to those hours during which commissions or bonuses were earned.)
