Preface
This bulletin summarizes the results of a Bureau of Labor Statistics survey of wages and related
benefits in the men’s and boys’ suit and coat manufacturing industry in April 1976. A similar study
was conducted by the Bureau in April 1973.
A summary of the 1976 study providing national and regional information and separate releases
for the following locations were issued earlier: the States of Georgia and Kentucky; the metropoli­
tan areas of Atlantic City and Vineland-Millville-Bridgeton, N.J., Baltimore, Boston, and New York;
part of the Philadelphia metropolitan area (Philadelphia and Delaware Counties, Pa., and Camden
County, N.J.); and Bristol County, Mass. For Baltimore, New York, and Philadelphia, releases were
issued separately for regular (inside) and cutting shops and for contract shops, as well as for all
shops. Copies of the releases are available from the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor
Statistics, Washington, D.C. 20212, or any of its regional offices.
The study was conducted in the Bureau’s Office of Wages and Industrial Relations. Harry B.
Williams of the Division of Occupational Wage Structures prepared the analysis in this bulletin. Field
work for the survey was directed by the Bureau’s Assistant Regional Commissioners for Operations.
Other reports available from the Bureau’s program of industry wage studies, as well as the
addresses of the Bureau’s regional offices, are listed at the end of this bulletin.

example, employment, dropped 39 percent in the Border
States, 27 percent in the Middle Atlantic region, 22 percent
in New England, 18 percent in the Southeast, and 15 per­
cent in the Great Lakes region. The Middle Atlantic and
Border States accounted for nearly three-fourths of the net
employment decrease.

Summary

Straight-time hourly earnings of production and related
workers in the men’s and boys’ suit and coat manufacturing
industry averaged $3.97 in April 1976.1 Average (mean)
earnings of the production work force within the scope of
the survey were 21 percent above the level of earnings re­
corded in April 1973 when a similar survey was con­
ducted.2 In April 1976, about 95 percent of the 64,105
workers earned between $2.30 and $6.30 an hour.
Regionally,3 the highest averages were reported in the
Middle Atlantic and Pacific regions—
$4.26 an hour-and the
lowest in the Southwest—
$3.03 an hour. Nationwide, occu­
pational averages were usually highest among cutting room
workers and lowest for janitors and work distributors. Sew­
ing machine operators, just over two-fifths of the work
force and numerically the most populated occupational
group, averaged $3.88 an hour in coat fabrication and
$3.74 in trouser fabrication.
Establishments having collective bargaining agreements
covering a majority of their production workers accounted
for nearly four-fifths of the industry’s work force. With few
exceptions, collective bargaining agreements were with the
Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America (AFL-CIO);
these contracts usually provided for eight paid holidays an­
nually; paid summer and Christmas vacations; and health,
insurance, and retirement benefits.

L o ca tio n . In April 1976, nearly two-thirds of the produc­

tion workers in the survey were concentrated in two re­
gions—
the Middle Atlantic (46 percent) and the Southeast
(18 percent). The Great Lakes and Border States each em­
ployed about one-eighth. None of the remaining regions
studied employed more than 5 percent of the industry’s
work force.
The industry’s employees in metropolitan areas made up
slightly more than three-fourths of its work force. Such
areas included all or virtually all of the workers in the New
England, Middle Atlantic, and Pacific regions, seven-eighths
in the Southwest, three-fourths in the Great Lakes region,
two-thirds in the Border States, and three-tenths in the
Southeast.
Nearly one-half of the industry’s workers were in eight
locations studied separately. Employment in these locations
ranged from 384 in Boston to over 5,000 in the State of
Georgia (5,462 workers), Philadelphia (7,323 workers), and
New York City (7,709 workers). The other four—
Atlantic
City and Vineland-Millville-Bridgeton, Baltimore, Bristol
County, and the State of Kentucky—
reported between
1,600 and 3,400 workers.

Industry characteristics

T yp e o f shop. Three types of shops were included in the
survey: (1) “ Regular” or “inside” shops own the materials
and perform all or nearly all of the required manufacturing
operations. These shops accounted for about 80 percent of
the workers in the survey. (2) Contract shops, employing
19 percent of the workers, perform manufacturing opera­
tions on materials owned by others. The Middle; Atlantic
region accounted for four-fifths of the workers employed in
contract shops. (3) Cutting shops own the material and cut
the cloth, but deliver it to contract shops for the remaining
processes. Cutting shops employed 2 percent of the workers
Earnings data in this bulletin exclude premium pay for over­ and, in this study, have been grouped with regular shops.

E m p lo ym en t. The 447 establishments covered by the April

1976 survey—
those with at least 5 workers—
employed
64,105 production and related workers. Nationwide, em­
ployment in the men’s and boys’ suit and coat manufactur­
ing industry decreased by nearly 22,000 workers or 25 per­
cent since the April 1973 survey when just under 86,000
workers were employed. Regionally, where comparisons
could be made, reductions in the number of production
workers between 1973 and 1976 varied considerably. For

lored jackets accounted for slightly more than one-eighth of
the workers; most of the remainder of the work force were
employed in establishments producing uniforms. Text table
1 illustrates that the proportion of workers varied consider­
ably by principal product among the selected regions and
localities studied separately.
Between 1972 and 1975, total domestic production of
men’s suits declined 30 percent and boys’ suits, 36 percent
(text table 2). Significant changes during this period oc­
curred in the type of construction of men’s suits. The pro­
duction of woven fabric suits increased 20 percent from
1972 to 1975, while knit fabric suits decreased 65 percent.
During the same period, U.S. manufacturers’ production of
men’s tailored suit-type dress and sport coats declined 50
percent and of similar clothing for boys, 46 percent.
More than 150 distinct operations are required to make
a suit, and more than 75 to make an overcoat. Although
smaller shops have combined operations into a single job,
the number of occupational classifications is still relatively
large. After a suit has been designed and patterns made in
various sizes, garment parts are marked, cut, and then pre­
pared for sewing by fitters who sort, match, and trim small
parts and mark locations for pockets, buttons, belt loops,
and so forth. Workers engaged in sewing usually are as­
signed a specific task in the assembly process, such as sew­
ing on buttons, sewing backs to fronts, or setting sleeves.
During the process, seams are pressed and the garment is
inspected periodically for proper workmanship.
Workers engaged in sewing operations, performed either
by hand or machine, accounted for one-half of the indus-

try’s production workers. Sewing-machine operators made
up just over two-fifths of the work force and greatly out­
numbered workers in hand-sewing operations, who usually
are employed on higher priced garments. (See chart.) The
proportion of hand-sewing workers in the industry has been
declining since 1963 as machine production techniques
have gained in importance.
S ex o f w orkers. Slightly more than 75 percent of the indus­

try’s production workers in April 1976 were women. They
constituted at least 70 percent of the workers in each re­
gion and outnumbered men in such occupational categories
as fitters, inspectors, pairers and turners, sewing machine
operators, shapers, thread trimmers and basting pullers, and
in most hand-sewing jobs. Men, on the other hand, were
predominant in cutting jobs and in finish pressing classifica­
tions.

U nionization. Establishments operating under labor-man­
agement agreements employed four-fifths of the production
workers in the industry. On the regional level, the propor­
tion of workers ranged from over nine-tenths in the Middle
Atlantic, New England, and Pacific regions to slightly less
than three-tenths in the Southeast. In the eight locations
selected for separate study, the proportion of workers in
union establishments were about one-tenth in Georgia,
two-thirds in Kentucky, nearly seven-eighths in Boston, and
over nine-tenths in each of the remaining four areas.
In April 1976, the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of
America (ACWA) was the bargaining agent for nearly all
contracts in the industry. In June 1976, the Textile Work­
ers Union merged with the Amalgamated Clothing Workers
to form the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers
Union (ACTWU)—
affiliated with AFL-CIO.

vided a 27.5-cents-an-hour increase for workers on a
40-hour week and 30.6 cents for those on a 36-hour week.
In addition, workers on a 40-hour week received a 2.0-cent
cost-of-living adjustment and those on a 36-hour week a
2.2-cent adjustment, effective May 31, 1976. The agree­
ment also specified nationwide minimum rates and a rate
progression scale for both time and incentive workers in
various occupations in the industry. At the time of the
survey, advancement from the starting rate to maximum
guaranteed rate, depending on occupation, required from 8
to 24 months of service.
Hourly averages for men, slightly more than one-fifth of
the industry’s work force, were $4.79 an hour— percent
29
more than the $3.72 rate for women. The earnings advan­
tage for men, among regions permitting comparisons, was
19 percent in New England, 21 percent in the Southeast, 23
percent in the Great Lakes region, and 28 percent in the
Middle Atlantic region. Women worked primarily in lowpaying occupational categories such as sewing machine op­
erators and hand finishers, whereas men were predominant
in higher paying jobs, such as cutters and markers, finish
pressers, and sewing machine adjusters.
Differences in average pay levels for men and women
may result from several factors, including variation in the
distribution of sexes among establishments and, as indi­
cated above, among jobs with disparate pay levels. Differ­
ences noted in averages for men and women in the same job
and area may reflect possible minor differences in duties.
Job descriptions used to classify workers in wage surveys
usually are more generalized than those used in individual
establishments because establishments differ in specific du­
ties performed. As noted earlier, earnings in some jobs are
determined largely by production at piece rates. Incentive
earnings for individuals or sex groupings vary according to
work experience, effort, workflow, or other factors which
the worker may or may not control.
Nationwide, workers in metropolitan areas averaged
$4.14 an hour, 24 percent more than the $3.34 average for
workers in nonmetropolitan areas (tables 1 and 4). In the two
regions where comparisons were possible, workers in larger
communities in the Southeast and Border States averaged 5
and 10 percent more, respectively, than those in smaller
communities.
Average earnings for the eight centers of industry con­
centration studied separately ranged from $3.09 in the
State of Gerogia to $4.51 an hour in the New York metro-,
politan area (tables 8-21).
Nationally, hourly earnings for employees in larger shops
(500 workers or more) averaged $4.18; those in middle-size
shops (250-499 workers), $3.96 and smaller shops (5-249
workers), $3.76(tables 1 and 6). The two regions permitting
comparisons-the Southeast and Middle Atlantic regions—
some deviation from the national pattern was noted.
Workers in plants operating under labor-management
agreements covering a majority of their employees averaged
$4.18 an hour, 36 percent more than the $3.08 average for

Nearly three-fourths of the
workers were paid on an incentive basis, typically under
individual piecework plans4 (table 23). Incentive pay sys­
tems applied most commonly to markers, pressers, spread­
ers, sewing machine operators, shapers, and to most of the
hand-sewing occupations. Regionally, the proportions of in­
centive workers ranged from two-thirds in New England to
nearly four-fifths in the Great Lakes region. In surveyed
areas, the proportions ranged from slightly less than threeeighths in Boston to just over four-fifths in Kentucky.

Average hourly earnings

Straight-time earnings of the 64,105 production and re­
lated workers covered by the study averaged $3.97 an hour
in April 1976.5 Regionally, hourly averages ranged from
$3.03 in the Southwest to $4.26 in the Middle Atlantic and
Pacific regions (table 1).
The level of earnings in April 1976 ($3.97) was 21 per­
cent above the average recorded in the Bureau’s April 1973
survey ($3.28). This increase, averaging 6.6 percent an­
nually, resulted mostly from general wage adjustments
granted under a collective bargaining agreement between
the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America (ACWA)
and the Clothing Manufacturers’ Association of the United
States. This agreement, which expired in May 1977, pro­
vided for a wage adjustment effective May 31, 1976, not
reflected in the survey data.6 The wage adjustment pro4 Average earnings reflect not only piecework rates but also
worker productivity. Earnings for piece rate jobs cannot measure
accurately differences in pay rates per unit of work because of
experience effort, workflow, and other factors which the individual
may or may not control.
5 Straight-time average hourly earnings in this bulletin differ in
concept from the gross average hourly earnings published monthly
in the Bureau’s periodical Employment and Earnings ($4.11 in April
1976). Unlike the latter, estimates presented here exclude premium
pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late
shifts. Average earnings were calculated by summing individual
hourly earnings and dividing by the number of individuals; in the
monthly series, the sum of the hours reported by establishments in
the industry was divided into the reported payroll totals.
The estimate of the number of production workers within the
scope of the study is intended only as a general guide to the size and
composition of the labor force included in the survey. It differs
from the number published in the monthly series (76,700 in April
1976) by the exclusion of jobbers and establishments employing
fewer than five workers. Planning for the survey required that lists
of establishments be assembled considerably in advance of data col­
lection. Thus, establishments new to the industry are omitted, as are
establishments originally classified in the men’s and boys’ suit and
coat industry but found to be in other industries at the time of the
survey. Also omitted are establishments manufacturing men’s and
boys’ suits and coats, but classified incorrectly in other industries at
the time the lists were compiled.
6 Under this contract, wage adjustments also were granted in
June 1974, September 1974, and June 1975. Workers also received
a cost-of-living adjustment in June 1975. For details o f the contract,
see “Development in Industrial Relations,” Monthly Labor Review
August 1974, p. 89.

workers in plants without such coverage (tables 1 and 7). In
the two regions where union and nonunion workers could
be compared, the Southeast and Border States, union work­
ers held a wage advantage of 12 and 49 percent, respec­
tively.
Nationwide, straight-time earnings for employees in both
types of shops (contract shops and regular and cutting
shops) averaged the same in April 1976—
$3.97 an hour
(tables 1 and 5). In the Middle Atlantic region, the only one
permitting comparison, workers employed in regular and
cutting shops averaged 13 cents an hour more than those
employed in contract shops. The national relationship by
type of shop was influenced by the mix of regional and area
employment in the industry. To illustrate, slightly more
than four-fifths of the workers in contract shops, which
tailor goods owned by others, were in the Middle Atlantic
(one of the highest paying regions); only 38 percent of the
regular and cutting shop employees, however, were located
there in April 1976.
Nearly 95 percent of the 64,105 production workers
earned between $2.30 and $6.30 an hour (table 2). The
middle 50 percent of the production work force earned
between $3.03 and $4.70 an hour. Four percent of all men
and 13. percent of all women earned below $2.50 an hour.
Above $6 an hour, the corresponding proportions were 20
and 3 percent. Regionally, earnings below $2.50 an hour
accounted for just over two-fifths of all production workers
in the Southwest, about one-fifth in the Southeast, oneeighth in the Border States, and less than 10 percent in each
of the remaining regions. At the upper end of the array, the
proportion of workers that earned $6 an hour or more did
not exceed 11 percent in any region.
The basic survey tabulations did not attempt to isolate
and measure any of the preceding characteristics as individ­
ual determinants of wage levels. Appendix A of this bulle­
tin, however, presents a brief technical note on the results
of a multiple regression analysis in which the effects of
individual survey characteristics were isolated to a measur­
able degree. In several cases there were marked differences
in average earnings differentials produced by cross-tabula­
tion (simple regression) as discussed in this section of the
report, and those derived from multiple regression. For ex­
ample, production workers in metropolitan areas averaged
80 cents an hour more than those in small communities
(table 1), but apparently only about two-fifths (32 cents)
of the differential can be attributed solely to classification
by size of community. Moreover, for cloth cutters, regres­
sion results indicate no significant influence of community
size on wage levels, while the cross-tabulated difference of
large to small communities for this classification was nearly
$1.50 an hour (appendix tables A-l and A-2). Evidently,
other factors closely correlated with large community
size—
unionization and location in high-paying regions out­
side the Southeast—
had a large positive effect on the survey
differential reported by size of community.




Occupational earnings

The survey also developed earnings information separ­
ately for a number of individual occupations selected to
represent the skills and manufacturing operations found in
the industry (table 3). These jobs accounted for slightly
more than three-fourths of the 64,105 production and re­
lated workers within the scope of the April 1976 survey.
Nationwide, pay levels in the industry were usually highest
among cutting room employees and lowest for janitors and
work distributors. The average for cloth cutters and mark­
ers (the highest paid job studied) exceeded the average for
janitors (the lowest paid job) by 83 percent (text table 3).
Hourly averages for these two jobs were $5.85 and $3.19,
respectively. In addition to cloth cutters and markers, na­
tionwide averages for workers exceeded $5 an hour in the
following jobs: Cloth cutters ($5.64), lining cutters ($5.23),
and markers ($5.08).
Sewing machine operators, slightly more than two-fifths
of all production workers and numerically the most popu­
lated job in the industry, averaged $3.88 an hour in coat
fabrication and $3.74 an hour in trouser fabrication. Their
earnings, however, varied by specific tasks performed. For
example, operators who baste front edges and bottoms of
coats with a temporary removable chain-stitch (basters) av­
eraged $4.28 an hour— percent more than operators who
15
join side seams ($3.71) in the coat fabrication department.
On the other hand, sewing machine operators who attach
zippers averaged $4.26— percent more than the $3.54
20
hourly average for serging operators who make covering
stitches over raw edges of cloth to prevent ravelling.
In April 1976, occupational pay averages among regions
and areas varied widely as indicated in table 22 which com­
pares eight selected jobs with nationwide averages. Regional
pay levels generally varied more widely for relatively highly
paid jobs, such as adjusters (repairers), cutters and markers,
and machine finish pressers, than for hand finishers and
work distributors— pattern found in previous surveys of
a
this industry but not common in other industries studied
by the Bureau.
Occupational pay relationships also varied by locality
studied and by sex. In Kentucky, for example, thread trim­
mers and basting pullers averaged $3.61 an hour— cents
71
an hour more than work distributors. In Georgia, work dis­
tributors averaged 41 cents an hour more than thread trim­
mers and basting pullers. Men who worked in trouser fabri­
cation department as sewing-machine operators in Phila­
delphia averaged 27 cents an hour more than those in New
York; women performing similar tasks in New York aver­
aged 56 cents an hour more than those employed in Phila­
delphia.
Earnings of individual workers varied widely within the
same job and area. For some jobs, particularly those typi­
cally paid under incentive systems, there was considerable
dispersion even within the same establishment (tables 8-21).

Information was obtained for production workers on
work schedules and on various supplementary benefits in­
cluding paid holidays, paid vacations, and health, insurance,
and retirement pension plans.

ers of America (ACWA) provisions applied, holiday pay was
computed as follows: For time-rated workers, the pay for
each holiday is one-fifth of the employee’s current regular
weekly rate; for incentive-paid workers, eight times the em­
ployee’s straight-time average hourly earnings, as computed
for determining the first week’s summer vacation pay (paid
vacations).

S ch ed u led w e e k ly hours. Work schedules of 40 hours a

P aid vacations. Virtually all production workers were in

week were in effect in establishments employing 94 percent
of the production workers; most of the remaining work
force had weekly work schedules of 36 hours (table 24).
Regionally, the proportion of workers with weekly sched­
ules of 40 hours was five-sixths in the Great Lakes region,
nine-tenths in the Southeast, and all or virtually all in the
remaining regions.

establishments providing paid vacations after qualifying per­
iods of service (table 26). Establishments having agreements
with the ACWA usually provided summer vacation pay as
follows: One-half of a week’s pay after 6 but less than 9
months of service; three-fourths of a week’s pay after 9
months but less than 1 year of service; and 2 weeks’ pay
after 1 year of service or more. The first week of vacation
pay is computed as follows: For time-rated workers, the
employee’s regular weekly rate; for incentive workers, 40
times the employee’s straight-time average hourly earnings
for the 4 consecutive busiest weeks of the vacation year.
The second week’s vacation pay equals the first week’s pay
for employees with at least 1,200 hours worked during the
year ending May 31; for those with fewer than 1,200 hours,
the second week’s vacation amounts to 2 lA percent of the
employee’s straight-time earnings during the year ending
May 31. In addition, employees with 1 year of service or

P aid holidays. Paid holiday provisions—
typically 8 days an­

nually-covered virtually all production workers in the sur­
vey (table 25). The proportion of workers receiving such
provisions varied widely by region. Eight paid holidays, for
example, were granted to seven-eighths or more of the
workers in four regions (New England, Middle Atlantic,
Great Lakes, and Pacific), to about two-thirds in Border
States, to one-half in the Southwest, and to just over twofifths in the Southeast. Where Amalgamated Clothing Work­

Employers contribute specified percentages (2 percent or
less) of gross wages to maintain these facilities. In New
York and Philadelphia, employees also contributed to
health centers.
Retirement benefits were provided by establishments
employing nearly nine-tenths of the industry’s production
work force. For ACWA members, employers contribute
4.64 percent of gross wages payable each pay period to the
Retirement Fund of the Amalgamated Insurance Fund. The
fund provides minimum retirement payments of $95 a
month, in addition to Federal social security, to qualified
workers beginning at age 65. Additional monthly payments
are made to eligible employees for each year of service over
20 and up to 40 years and for average annual earnings over
$5,000 for the highest 5 of the 7 years immediately preced­
ing retirement. Maximum monthly benefits are limited to
$200 and a base of $85 is used to compute benefits exceed­
ing $95 per month. If otherwise eligible, workers may retire
before age 65 on disability at full benefits, or at age 62 with
reduced retirement benefits.

more on December 1 receive 1 week of vacation pay at
Christmas, computed similarly to pay for the second week
of summer vacation. In computing Christmas vacation pay,
the vacation year ends November 30 and the employee’s
current rate is lowered by one-half of the wage increase
granted in June of the current vacation year.
H ealth , insurance, an d re tire m e n t plans. Health and insur­

ance benefits were provided to workers in establishments
with ACWA contracts through the Social Insurance Fund of
the Amalgamated Insurance Fund. At the time of the sur­
vey employers contributed 5.56 percent of gross wages each
pay period to the fund (table 27). Employee benefits pro­
vided by this fund included $3,000 life insurance; sickness
and accident insurance; and surgical, medical, and hospitali­
zation benefits. Surgical, medical, and hospitalization bene­
fits are also provided for the families of employees.
Services of a union health center were available to em­
ployees in seven areas—
Baltimore, Chicago, Philadelphia,
New York City, Rochester, Scranton, and Wilkes-Barre.

1 Excludes premium pay for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts. This survey, based on a representative sample of
establishments, is designed to measure the level of occupational earnings at a particular time. Thus, comparisons made with previous
studies may not reflect expected wage movements because of change in the sample composition, and shifts in employment among
establishments with different pay levels. Such shifts, for example, could decrease an occupational average, even though most
establishments increased wages between periods being compared.
2 Piecework rates typically applied to sewing machine operators, hand sewers, and pressers whereas workers in cutting and
marking jobs, sewing machine adjusters, stock clerks, janitors, and work distributors were usually paid time rates. Differences in
average earnings for piece-rate jobs cannot be used as an accurate measure of differences in rate of pay per unit of work produced.




-

-

Earnings not only reflect the piecework rates for a given job, but also the productivity of the workers performing the task, which is
affected by work experience, effort, workflow, and other factors that the individual may or may not control.
3 Includes data for regions in addition to those shown separately.
4 Includes sewing machine operators in addition to those shown separately.
N O T E : Dashes indicate no data reported or data that do not meet publication criteria.

1 Th e Atlantic C ity and Vineland-Millville-Bridgeton Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas consist of Atlantic and
Cumberland Counties.
2 Excludes premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts. These surveys, based on a
representative sample of establishments, are designed to measure the level of occupational earnings at a particular time. Thus, compari­
sons made with previous studies may not reflect expected wage movements because of change in the sample composition, and shifts in
employment among establishments with different pay levels. Such shifts, for example, could decrease an occupational average, even
though most establishments increased wages between periods being compared. Approxim ately 66 percent of the production workers
covered by the survey are incentive-rated.
3 Workers were distributed as follows: 26 at $7.20 to $7.60; 30 at $7.60 to $8 ; 14 at $8 to $8.40; 8 at $8.40 to $8.80-1 at
$8.80 to $9.20; 2 at $9.20 to $9.60; and 6 at $9.60 and over.
4 A ll or virtually all workers are men.

1 The Baltimore Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area consists of the city of Baltimore; and the counties of Anne Arundel,
Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, and Howard.
2 Excludes premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts. These surveys, based on a representa­
tive sample of establishments, are designed to measure the level of occupational earnings at a particular time. Thus, comparisons made
with previous studies may not reflect expected wage movements because of change in the sample composition, and shifts in employment
among establishments with different pay levels. Such shifts, for example, could decrease an occupational average, even though most

establishments increased wages between periods being compared. Approximately 68 percent of the production workers covered by the
survey are incentive-rated.
3 All or virtually all workers are incentive-rated.
4 Includes data for workers in classifications in addition to those shown separately.
5 All or virtually all workers are women.
6 All or virtually all workers are time-rated.

Table 13. Occupational earnings: Bristol County, Mass.— All shops— Continued

1 Excludes premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts. These surveys, based on a
representative sample of establishments, are designed to measure the level of occupational earnings at a particular time. Thus, compari­
sons made with previous studies may not reflect expected wage movements because of change in the sample composition, and shifts in
employment among establishments with different pay levels. Such shifts, for example, could decrease an occupational average, even
though most establishments increased wages between periods being compared. Approximately 66 percent of the production workers
covered by the survey are incentive-rated.
2 Workers were distributed as follows: 10 at $5.80 to $6; 16 at $6 to $6.20; 5 at $6.20 to $6.40; 3 at $6.40 to $6.60; 4 at
$6.60 to $6.80; 11 at $6.80 to $7, and 14 at $7 and over.
3 All or virtually all workers are men.
4 Workers were distributed as follows: 1 at $6 to $6.20; 1 at $6.60 to $6.80, and 2 at $7 and over.

1 Excludes premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts. These surveys, based on a
representative sample of establishments, are designed to measure the level of occupational earnings at a particular time. Thus, compari­
sons made with previous studies may not reflect expected wage movements because of change in the sample composition, and shifts in
employment among establishments with different pay levels. Such shifts, for example, could decrease an occupational average, even
though most establishments increased wages between periods being compared. Approximately 74 percent of the production workers
covered by the survey are incentive rated.

1 Excludes premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts. These surveys, based on a representa­
tive sample of establishments, are designed to measure the level of occupational earnings at a particular time. Thus, comparisons made
with previous studies may not reflect expected wage movements because of change in the sample composition, and shifts in employment
among establishments with different pay levels. Such shifts, for example, could decrease an occupational average, even though most
establishments increased wages between periods being compared. Approximately 81 percent of the production workers covered by the
survey are incentive-rated.

tion, and shifts in employment among establishments with different pay levels. Such shifts, for example, could decrease an
occupational average, even though most establishments increased wages between periods being compared. Approxim ately 63
percent of the production workers covered by the survey are incentive rated.
3 A ll or virtually all workers are men.
4 Workers were distributed as follows: 5 at $7.20 to $7.60; 1 at $7.60 to $8; 5 at $8 to $8.40; 2 at $8.40 to $8.80; 1 at
$8.80 to $9.20; 9 at $9.20 to $9.60; and 14 at $9.60 and over.
5 Workers were distributed as follows: 2 at $7.20 to $7.60; 2 at $8 to $8.40; and 8 at $9.60 and over.
6 Workers were distributed as follows: 8 at $7.20 to $7.60; 5 at $7.60 to $8; 51 at $8 to $8.40; 10 at $8.40 to $8.80;
10 at $8.80 to $9.20; and 9 at $9.60 and over.

1 The New York Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area consists of Bronx, Kings, New Yo rk , Putnam, Queens, Rich­
mond, Rockland, and Westchester Counties, N .Y .; and Bergen County, N .J.
2 Excludes premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts. These surveys, based on a
representative sample of establishments, are designed to measure the level of occupational earnings at a particular time. Thus,
comparisons made with previous studies may not reflect expected wage movements because of change in the sample composi­
tion, and shifts in employment among establishments with different pay levels. Such shifts, for example, could decrease an
occupational average, even though most establishments increased wages between periods being compared. Approxim ately 63
percent of the production workers covered by the survey are incentive-rated.
3 Workers were at $7.20 to $7.60.
4 All or virtually all workers are women.

1 Th e Philadelphia Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area consists of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia
Counties, Pa.; and Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester Counties, N .J.
2 Excludes premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts. These surveys, based on a representa­
tive sample of establishments, are designed to measure the level of occupational earnings at a particular time. Thus, comparisons made
with previous studies may not reflect expected wage movements because of change in the sample composition, and shifts in employment
among establishments with different pay levels. Such shifts, for example, could decrease an occupational average, even though most
establishments increased wages between periods being compared. Approximately 67 percent of the production workers covered by the
survey are incentive-rated.
3 All or virtually all workers are time-rated.

1 Th e Philadelphia Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area consists of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia
Counties, Pa.; and Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester Counties, N.J.
2 Excludes premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts. These surveys, based on a representa­
tive sample of establishments, are designed to measure the level of occupational earnings at a particular time. Thus, comparisons made
w ith previous studies may not reflect expected wage movements because of change in the sample composition, and shifts in employment
among establishments w ith different pay levels. Such shifts, for example, could decrease an occupational average, even though most
establishments increased wages between periods being compared. Approximately 64 percent of the production workers covered by the
survey are incentive-rated.

1 Th e Philadelphia Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area consists of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia
Counties, Pa.; and Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester Counties, N.J.
2 Excludes premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts. These surveys, based on a representa­
tive sample of establishments, are designed to measure the level of occupational earnings at a particular time. Thus, comparisons made
w ith previous studies may not reflect expected wage movements because of change in the sample composition, and shifts in employment
among establishments w ith different pay levels. Such shifts, for example, could decrease an occupational average, even though most
establishments increased wages between periods being compared. Approximately 70 percent of the production workers covered by the
survey are incentive-rated.
3 A ll or virtually all workers are women.




4 Workers were distributed as follows: 2 at $9.40 to $9.80; 4 at $10.20 to $10.60; 4 at $11 to $11.40; and 2 at $11.40 and over.
5 All or virtually all workers are time-rated.
6 All or virtually all workers are incentive-rated.
7 All or virtually all workers are men.
8 Includes data for workers in classification in addition to those shown separately.
9 Where separate information is not shown by sex or method of wage payment, all or virtually all workers are women, and
incentive-rated.
10
Where separate information is not shown by sex or method of wage payment, all or virtually all workers are men, and

1 Workers covered by these contracts usually received a summer vacation with one-half week’s pay after 6 but less than 9 months of service; three-fourths week’s pay after 9 months but less
than 1 year of service; and 2 week’ pay after 1 year of service or more.
The first week of vacation pay is computed as follows: For time rated workers, the employee’s current regular weekly rate; forincentive workers, 40 times
the employee’s straight-time
average hourly earnings for the four consecutive busiest weeks of the vacation year. The second week’s vacation pay equals pay for the first week for employees with at least 1,200 hours
worked during the year ending May 31; for those with less than 1,200 hours, the second week’s vacation amounts to 2.5 percent of the employee’s straight-time earnings during the year ending
May 31. The Christmas vacation pay is computed in a manner similar to the second week of summer vacation pay. A number of ACWA establishments had different vacation provisions, mostly in
the method of computing pay.
2 Includes data for regions in addition to those shown separately.
Vacation payments, such as percent of annual earnings, were converted to an
equivalent time basis. Periods of service werechosen
arbitrarily anddonotnecessarily reflectindividual
establishment provisions for progression. For example, changes indicated at 10 years may include changes that occurred between 5 and 10 years.
4 Less than 0.5 percent.
* Vacation provisions were virtually the same after longer periods of service.

1 Employers having contracts with ACWA contributed 5.56 percent of gross wages to the Social Insurance Fund of the Amalgamated Insurance Fund. Employee benefits provided by this fund
include $3,000 life insurance; sickness and accident insurance; and surgical, medical, and hospitalization benefits. Surgical, medical, and hospitalization benefits are also provided for the
families of employees.
Employers having contracts with ACWA also contributed 4.64 percent of gross wages payable each pay period to the Retirement Fund of the Amalgamated Insurance Fund. The fund provides
minimum retirement payments of $95 a month, in addition to Federal social security, to qualified workers beginning at age 65. Additional monthly payments are made to eligible employees for
each year of eligibility over 20 and up to 40 years and for average annual earnings over $5,000 for the highest 5 of the 7 years immediately preceding retirement. Maximum monthly benefits are
limited to $200 and a base of $85 is used in computing benefits exceeding $95 per month. If otherwise eligible, workers may retire on disability at full benefits, or at age 62 with reduced
retirement benefits.
A number of ACWA establishments had different health, insurance, and pension benefits. Most differences were in the amounts which establishments contributed to the social retirement funds.
In addition a union health center was available in seven areas— Baltimore, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York City, Rochester, Scranton, and Wilkes-Barre. To maintain these centers, employers
contributed specified percentages (2 percent or less) of gross wages. In New York and Philadelphia, employees also made contributions to health centers.
1 Includes those plans for which the employer pays at least part of the cost and excludes legally required plans such as workers’ compensation and social security; however, plans required
by State temporary disability laws are included if the employer contributes more than is legally required or the employees receive benefits in excess of legal requirements. “ Noncontributory
plans” include only those plans financed entirely by the employer
3 Includes data for regions in addition to those shown separately.
4 Unduplicated total of workers receiving sickness and accident insurance and sick leave shown separately.
B Less than 0.5 percent.
* Unduplicated total of workers covered by pension plans and severance pay shown separately.

Appendix A. Regression Analysis
example, if production workers are in a union shop, the
estimated average hourly earnings are higher by 61 cents, or
$3.30 if other things are held constant. Further, if these
workers are located in a metropolitan area, another 32
cents is added to the constant term. Thus included, the
average hourly earnings would be raised to $3.62.
Wage differences found by a simple cross-tabulation can
be labeled gross differentials, and those isolated by regres­
sion techniques, n e t differentials. As illustrated in *table
A-2, net differentials are generally smaller than gross differ­
entials. The smaller size of net wage differentials is to be
expected, because of the aforementioned tendency for
characteristics associated with higher wages, such as unioni­
zation and metropolitan location, to be found in combina­
tion. Regression techniques, thus, permit a more precise
measurement of the impact of individual factors on the
wage structure of an industry.
It should be emphasized that the regression analysis is
not sufficiently complete to say with certainty that we have
measured the truly independent impact on wage levels of
particular employee and establishment characteristics. As
table A-l shows, the regression analysis left unexplained
about 50 percent of the variation in average earnings levels
for all production workers are about 43 to 63 percent of
the variation in earnings for the five circumflex selected
occupations. (See coefficient of determination, R2.) This
means that other factors, beyond the scope of the survey,
undoubtedly influenced the estimates. However, by holding
constant those characteristics within the survey scope, a de­
finite improvement in the estimates for specified character­
istics was obtained.

Conventional methods of analyzing wage variations using
cross tabulations (simple regression) of data typically stop
short of measuring the independent influence on wage
levels of factors such as size of establishment, location, and
union contract status. The independent effect of unioniza­
tion on earnings, for example, may be obscured somewhat
by earnings differentials associated with larger establish­
ments and location in metropolitan areas—
two characteris­
tics generally found more often with union than nonunion
establishments.
One method of isolating the independent effect on
wages of various establishment and worker characteristics is
multiple regression. By this method, the estimated wage
differential for a given variable is independent of the influ­
ence of other survey variables. The variables included in
table A-l are defined, where necessary, in appendix B—
Scope and Method of Survey.
In the regression analysis, one category of each of the
variables in the equation is not shown explicitly, but its
influence is embodied in the constant term. In tables A -l,
therefore, the categories represented by the constant term
are nonmetropolitan, small employment size, contract
shop, nonunion, Southeast, and, for the five selected occu­
pations, payment on a time basis. The average wage level
relating to this set of suppressed characteristics is repre­
sented by the value of the constant term, and the coeffi­
cients of the explicit variables represent the differentials
associated with categories of the characteristics which differ
from the basic set embodied in the constant.
To determine the effects of the coefficients on average
wage levels, values of the new variables are substituted in
table A-l for those suppressed in the constant term. For

Appendix B. Scope and Method of Survey
Scope of survey

The number of establishments and workers studied by
the Bureau as well as the number estimated to be within the
scope of the survey during the payroll period studied, are
shown in table B -l.

The survey covered establishments engaged primarily in
manufacturing men’s, youths’, and boys’ suits, coats, and
overcoats (part of industry 2311 as defined in the 1967
edition of the S tan da rd In d u stria l C lassification M an ual ,
prepared by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget).
Included in the study were establishments manufacturing
tailored suits, separate coats or jackets, overcoats and top­
coats, uniforms, and suit vests. Jobbers, who perform only
entrepreneurial functions, such as buying material, arrang­
ing for all manufacturing to be done by others, and selling
the finished product, were excluded from the survey, as
were separate auxiliary units such as central offices.
The establishments studied were selected from those em­
ploying five workers or more at the time of reference of the
data used in compiling the universe lists.

Method of study

Data were obtained by personal visits of the Bureau’s
field staff. The survey was conducted on a sample basis. To
obtain appropriate accuracy at minimum cost, a greater
proportion of large than of small establishments was
studied. In combining the data, however, all establishments
were given their appropriate weight. All estimates are pre­
sented, therefore, as relating to all establishments in the
industry excluding only those below the minimum size at
the time of reference of the universe data.

Establishment definition

Hourly earnings of salaried workers were obtained by divid­
ing straight-time salary by normal rather than actual hours.

An establishment, for purposes of this study, is defined
as a single physical location where industrial operations are
performed. An establishment is not necessarily identical
with the company, which may consist of one or more estab­
lishments.

Size of community

Tabulations by size of community pertain to metropoli­
tan and nonmetropolitan areas. The term “metropolitan
area,” as used in this bulletin, refers to the Standard Metro­
politan Statistical Areas as defined by the U.S. Office of
Management and Budget through February 1974.
Except in New England, a Standard Metropolitan Statis­
tical Area is defined as a county or group of contiguous
counties which contains at least one city of 50,000 or more
inhabitants. Counties contiguous to the one containing such
a city are included in a Standard Metropolitan Statistical
Area, if, according to certain criteria, they are essentially
metropolitan in character and are socially and economically
integrated with the central city. In New England, the city
and town are administratively more important than the
county, and they are the units used in defining Standard
Metropolitan Statistical Areas for that region.

Employment

The estimates of the number of workers within scope of
the study are intended as a general guide to the size and
composition of the labor force, rather than a precise mea­
sure of employment.
Production workers

The term “production workers,” as used in this bulletin,
includes working blue-collar worker supervisors and all nonsupervisory workers engaged in nonoffice functions. Ad­
ministrative, executive, professional, and technical person­
nel, and force-account construction employees, who were
employed as a separate work force on the firm’s own prop­
erties, were excluded.

Method of wage payment

Tabulations by method of wage payment relate to the
number of workers paid under the various time and incen­
tive wage systems. Formal rate structures for time-rated
workers provide single rates or a range of rates for individ­
ual job categories. In the absence of a formal rate structure,
pay rates are determined primarily by the qualifications of
the individual worker. A single rate structure is one in
which the same rate is paid to all experienced workers in
the same job classification. Learners, apprentices, or proba­
tionary workers may be paid according to rate schedules
which start below the single rate and permit the workers to
achieve the full job rate over a period of time. Individual
experienced workers occasionally may be paid above or be­
low the single rate for special reasons, but such payments
are regarded as exceptions. Range of rate plans are those in
which the minimum or maximum rates (or both) paid ex­
perienced workers for the same job are specified. Specific
rates of individual workers within the range may be deter­
mined by merit, length of service, or a combination of vari­
ous concepts of merit and length of service. Incentive work­
ers are classified under piecework or bonus plans. Piece­
work is work for which a predetermined rate is paid for
each unit of output. Production bonuses are based on pro­
duction over a quota or for completion of a task in less
than standard time.

Occupations selected for study

Occupational classification was based on a uniform set
of job descriptions designed to take account of interestab­
lishment and interarea variations in duties within the same
job. (See appendix C for these descriptions.) The criteria
for selection of the occupation were: Number of workers in
the occupation; usefulness of the data in collective bargain­
ing; and appropriate representation of the entire job scale in
the industry. Working supervisors, apprentices, learners, be­
ginners, trainees, and handicapped, part-time, temporary,
and probationary workers were not reported in the data for
selected occupations but were included in the data for all
production workers.
Wage data

Information on wages relates to straight-time hourly
earnings, excluding premium pay for overtime and for work
on weekends, holidays, and late shifts. Incentive payments,
such as those resulting from piecework or production bonus
systems and cost-of-living bonuses, were included as part of
the workers’ regular pay; but nonproduction bonus pay­
ments, such as Christmas or yearend bonuses, were ex­
cluded .
Average (mean) hourly rates or earnings for each occupa­
tion or other groups of workers, such as men, women, or
production workers, were calculated by weighting each rate
(or hourly earnings) by the number of workers receiving the
rate, totaling, and dividing by the number of individuals.




Scheduled weekly hours

Data on weekly hours refer to the predominant work
schedule for full-time production workers employed on the
day shift.

sented for all such plans to which the employer contributes
at least a part of the cost. However, in New York and New
Jersey, where temporary disability insurance laws require
employer contributions,1 plans are included only if the em­
ployer (1) contributes more than is legally required, or (2)
provides the employees with benefits which exceed the re­
quirements of the law.
Tabulations of paid sick-leave plans are limited to formal
plans which provide full pay or a proportion of the work­
er’s pay during absence from work because of illness; in­
formal arrangements have been omitted. Separate tabula­
tions are provided according to (1) plans which provide full
pay and no waiting period, and (2) plans providing either
partial pay or a waiting period.
Medical insurance refers to plans providing for complete
or partial payment of doctors’ fees. Such plans may be
underwritten by a commercial insurance company or a non­
profit organization, or they may be a form of self-insur­
ance.
Major medical insurance, sometimes referred to as ex­
tended medical insurance, includes the plans designed to
cover employees in case of sickness or injury involving an
expense which exceeds the normal coverage of hospitaliza­
tion, medical, and surgical plans.
Tabulations of retirement pensions are limited to plans
which provide regular payments for the remainder of the
retiree’s life. Data are presented separately for retirement
severance pay (one payment or several over a specified per­
iod of time) made to employees upon retirement. Establish­
ments providing both retirement severance pay and retire­
ment pensions to employees were considered as having both
retirement pension and retirement severance pay. Establish­
ments having optional plans' which provide employees a
choice of either retirement severance pay or pensions were
considered as having only retirement pension benefits.

Supplementary wage provisions

Supplementary benefits were treated statistically on the
basis that if formal provisions were applicable to half or
more of the production workers in an establishment, the
benefits were considered applicable to all such workers.
Similarly, if fewer than half of the workers were covered,
the benefit was considered nonexistent in the establish­
ment. Because of length-of-service and other eligibility re­
quirements, the proportion of workers receiving the bene­
fits may be smaller than estimated.
P aid vacation s. The summary of vacation plans is limited to

formal arrangements, excluding informal plans whereby
time off with pay is granted at the discretion of the em­
ployer or the supervisor. Payments not on a time basis were
converted; for example, a payment of 2 percent of annual
earnings was considered the equavalent of 1 week’s pay.
The periods of service for which data are presented were
selected as representative of the most common practices,
but they do not necessarily reflect individual establishment
provisions for progression. For example, the changes in pro­
portions indicated at 10 years of service may include
changes which occurred between 5 and 10 years.
H ealth , insurance , and re tire m e n t plan s. Data are presented

for health, insurance, and pension plans for which all or
part of the cost is borne by the employer, excluding pro­
grams required by law, such as workers’ compensation
and social security. Among the plans included are those
underwritten by a commercial insurance company; those
provided through a union fund; or those paid directly by
the employer from his current operating funds or from a
fund set aside for this purpose.
Death benefits are included as a form of life insurance.
Sickness and accident insurance is limited to that type of
insurance under which predetermined cash payments are
made directly to the insured on a weekly or monthly basis
during illness or accident disability. Information is pre­




lrThe temporary disability insurance laws in California and
Rhode Island do not require employer contributions.

Appendix C. Occupational Descriptions

The primary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau’s wage survey is to assist
its field staff in classifying into appropriate occupations workers who are employed under a
variety of payroll titles and different work arrangements from establishment to establishment
and from area to area. This permits the grouping of occupational wage rates representing
comparable job content. Because of this emphasis on interestablishment and interarea compar­
ability of occupational content, the Bureau’s job description may differ significantly from those
used in individual establishments or those prepared for other purposes. In applying these job
descriptions, the Bureau’s field economists are instructed to exclude working supervisors, ap­
prentices, learners, beginners, trainees, and handicapped, part-time, temporary, and probation­
ary workers.
