INTRODUCTION
Certain employees of the maintenance of way and other depart­
ments of the Pennsylvania Railroad made a request for increases of
their October 1, 1927, wage rates. A joint fact finding committee,
consisting of four representatives of the railroad management and
also of four representatives of the employees of the railroad, was
appointed to obtain and tabulate information to be used in arriving
at a decision. The report of the committee contained comprehen­
sive statistics regarding wages paid by the various companies com­
prising the Pennsylvania Railroad regional system. These wage
statistics are reproduced, almost in full, in this bulletin.

RATES OF PAY OF EMPLOYEES WHO REQUESTED WAGE
INCREASES
The figures in Table 1 are for the employees of the Pennsylvania
Railroad (maintenance of way and others) who made the request
for increases in rates of pay and show for each occupation the num­
ber of employees at each rate of pay per hour or month as of Decem­
ber 31, 1917; April 30, 1920; June 30, 1921; July 15, 1922; October
31, 1922; April 15, 1923; July 15, 1923; February 28, 1927; October
1, 1927; and also the rates that would be paid should the increases
requested be granted.
The occupations in this table are assistant track foreman, assistant
floating gang foreman, assistant work-train foreman, fence foreman,
cooks, chauffeurs, track laborers, floating gang laborers, work-train
laborers, wreck laborers, crossing watchmen, pumpers, water serv­
ice repairmen, plumbers, motor-car repairmen, blacksmiths, machin­
ists, tinsmiths, electricians, cabinetmakers, and sheet-metal workers.
The rates of pay of assistant track foremen, the first occupation
in Table 1, on December 31, 1917, prior to the application of general
order No. 27 ranged from 21.5 to 31.0 cents per hour for the 1,141
who were paid hourly rates and for the 45 who were paid monthly
rates ranged from $63 to $93 per month. The weighted average of
the 821 in the eastern region who were paid hourly rates was 25.7
cents per hour, of the 317 in the central region was 24.4 cents per
hour, of the 3 in the western region was 26 cents per hour, and of
the 1,141 in the entire system was 25.3 cents per hour. The average
monthly rate of the 29 in the eastern region was $71.32, of the 4 in
the central region it was $68.68, of the 12 in the western region it was
$73.54, and of 45, the total at monthly rates on the entire system,
it was $71.68.
Average hourly rates of assistant track foremen on the entire sys­
tem were 25.3 cents per hour on December 31,1917, before the appli­
cation of general order No. 27; were 44.8 cents on April 30, 1920,
before the application of decision No. 2; were 59.9 cents on June
30, 1921, before the application of decision No. 147; were 50 cents on
July 15,1922, before the decrease; were 47 cents before the October 31,
1922, increase; were 49.9 cents on April 15,1923, before the increase; and
were 52.9 cents per hour when the October 1, 1927, increases were
requested. Based on the increases asked, the average of the 677
in the entire system of the Pennsylvania Railroad would be 58.1
cents per hour, an increase of 5.2 cents or 9.8 per cent over the rates
in effect October 1, 1927. The average monthly rates for the entire
system were $71.68 on December 31, 1917; $117.60 on April 30, 1920;
$148.20 on June 30,1921; $127.80 on July 15,1922; $121.70 on October
31, 1922; and were $127.80 on October 1, 1927, and would be $134.04
by granting the increases requested. The above illustrates the change
or trend in rates of pay of Pennsylvania Railroad employees in other
occupations in Table 1, pages 5 to 28, and also in Table 2, pages 30
to 75. The employees in Table 1 requested increases and those in
Table 2 did not.

of pay and show for each occupation the number of employees at each

shown here, but are shown along with the figures for each of them in
the table.

NUMBER OF LABORERS EACH MONTH, NOVEMBER 15,1926,
TO OCTOBER 15, 1927, BY PERIOD OF SERVICE

Data in Table 4 are for laborers (extra gang and work train) and
track and roadway section laborers of the Pennsylvania Railroad, and
show for each division of the eastern, central, and western regions of
the road the number of employees in these occupations grouped or
classified by length of service on the 15th of each month, November
15, 1926, to October 15, 1927. The groupings by periods of service
are: Less than 6 months; 6 months and Jess than 1 year; 1 year and
less than 18 months; 18 months and less than 2 years; 2 years and
less than 3 years; 3 years and less than 4 years; 4 years and less than
5 years; and 5 years and over. The table also shows the total and
the per cent of laborers in each classification group in each region in
each month.
On November 15,1926, the first month for which data are presented,
in the table, 3,009, or 30.3 per cent of the 9,938 laborers in the eastern
region, were in service less than 6 months, and the number of such
laborers on each division ranged from 19 on the Norfolk to 855 on
the New York division. The 1,070, or 10.8 per cent of the 9,938 in
this region, in service 6 months and less than 1 year ranged by division
from 16 on the Cresson to 185 on the Philadelphia division. The 642,
or 6.4 per cent in service 1 year and less than 18 months, ranged from
2 on the Cresson to 100 on the Atlantic division and for the Phila­
delphia Terminal. This explanation applies alike to each of the other
five classification groups, beginning with “ 18 months and less than
2 years ” and ending with “ 5 years and over,” to the total in the last
column for the eastern region, and to all the figures for the central and
the western regions under November 15, 1926, and also to all the
figures under each month, December 15, 1926, to October 15, 1927.

AVERAGE STRAIGHT TIME OR DAILY EARNINGS OF MAINTENANCE OF WAY WORKERS BY OCCUPATIONS ON 43
RAILROADS

The figures in Table 9 are the August, 1927, average straight time
hourly or daily earnings of employees in each of six groups of main­
tenance of way workers on each of 43 railroads, including the Penn­
sylvania. The groups are as classified by the Interstate Commerce
Commission as follows: 42, masons, bricklayers, plasterers, and
plumbers; 47, pumping equipment operators; 51, laborers, extra
gang and work train; 52, track and roadway section laborers; 51 and
52, laborers, extra gang and work train, and track and roadway
section laborers; and 124, crossing and bridge flagmen and gatemen.
“ Straight time” as used in this table means earnings for hours worked
within the regular time of beginning and quitting work on each day
with no overtime or extra work of any kind. The explanation of
Table 6, page 143, modified slightly, applies to the averages in this
table.

RATES OF PAY PER HOUR IN EACH OF EIGHT OCCUPATIONS
IN INDUSTRIES OTHER THAN RAILROADS
The figures in Table 10 shows the number of employees in each of
eight specified occupations in industries other than railroads at each
rate of pay per hour as of November 1, 1927. The weighted average
rate per hour is shown for the employees in each occupation.
The rates of pay of 309 assistant track foremen in 114 industries
other than railroads ranged from 35 cents per hour for the 1 with the
lowest rate to $1.11 per hour for the 3 with the highest rate. The
average rate was 58.4 cents per hour. The rates of the 439 pumpers
in 90 industries ranged from 29.8 to 84 cents and averaged 58 cents
per hour. The rates of the 1,015 tinsmiths in 105 industries ranged
from 42 cents to $1.50 and averaged 73.2 cents per hour. The rates
and averages for boilermakers, water-service repairmen, black­
smiths, cabinetmakers, and for chauffeurs in other industries are also
shown in this table. These figures may be compared with like
figures for employees in these occupations on the Pennsylvania
Railroad in Table 1, pages 5 to 28, and on 64 railroads in Table 5,
pages 95 to 142.

RATES OF PAY PER HOUR OF LABORERS IN INDUSTRIES
OTHER THAN RAILROADS
The figures in Table 11 are for “ other” and also for “ track” laborers
in industries other than railroads, and show the number of industries
and of “ other” and of “ track” laborers in such industries in each
railroad division or locality in the eastern and in the central regions of
the railroads at each rate of pay per hour, November 1, 1927. Like
figures are shown for the industries and for the employees in these
two occupations in them for the entire railroad system.
Reading part of the figures for the Philadelphia division of the
eastern region in explanation of the table, it is seen that rates of pay
per hour are for “ other” laborers in 72 industries, for “ track” laborers
in 7 industries, and for “ other” and “ track” laborers together for a
total of 73 industries. In 66 of the 73 industries rates of pay are for
“ other” laborers only, in 6 rates are for both classes, and in 1 industry
rates are for “ track” laborers only. The rates of pay for “ other”
laborers range from 30 cents per hour for 68 to 65 cents per hour for
9 and the weighted average for the 3,244 is 42.6 cents per hour. The
rates for “ track” laborers in this division range from 32 cents per hour
for 4 to 60 cents per hour for 1, and the average for the 154 in the 7
industries is 38.3 cents per hour.

ENTRANCE WAGE RATES FOR COMMON LABOR, JULY 1,
1927
The following concerning common labor is as published by the
United States Bureau of Labor Statistics in October, 1927, Monthly
Labor Review, page 126, and included in reports of the Pennsylvania
Railroad Maintenance of Way Joint Fact Finding Committee:
The term “ common labor” has many interpretations among different in­
dustries, and even among different localities or plants in the same industry.
Many employers make a practice of increasing the rate of pay of a laborer after
a stated length of service, provided a sufficient degree of fitness for the job has
been developed; otherwise the employee is dropped. Owing to these difficulties
in the way of securing comparable data as to wage rates for common labor, the
Bureau of Labor Statistics has confined these statistics to entrance rates alone—
that is, the data here presented are based on rates of pay per hour given un­
skilled adult male common laborers when first hired.
This survey is limited to 13 important industries, which require considerable
numbers of common laborers. Some establishments have reported two rates—
for example, one for the 10-hour day and one for the 8-hour day, or one for
white and one for colored or Mexican workers; these distinctions have not been
maintained in the tabulated data, although it is apparent that the lowest rates
are shown for those geographic divisions where there are large numbers of colored
or Mexican workers, while the highest rates are shown for localities where an
8-hour day is more or less prevalent.
The industries included in this study and the number of common laborers in
each on July 1, 1927, employed, at entrance rates, in the establishments report­
ing are as follows:

in general contracting, followed by 46.3 cents in the automobile industry; the
lowest average rate, 32.2 cents, appears in the sawmill industry.
The highest average hourly rate in any geographic division, 47.2 cents, appears
in the Middle Atlantic division, followed by 46.7, in both the New England and
East North Central divisions, and 46.5 in the Pacific division; the lowest average
rate, 27 cents, appears in the East South Central division.
The weighted average entrance rates per hour for all industries covered, in­
cluding general contracting, have been as follows:

NUMBER OP EMPLOYEES IN EACH OCCUPATION ON RAIL­
ROADS KILLED AND INJURED 1922 TO 1927
The figures in Table 14 show the number of railroad employees in
each specified occupational group reported to the Interstate Com­
merce Commission as killed and injured, average number of such
employees in service, and average rate per 1,000 killed and injured
in each year, 1922 to 1926, and in the first nine months in 1927.
The classifications in the table are divided into 5 different groups of
employees according to the kind or place (maintenance of way, shop,
clerical, traffic, telegraphic) of work. Group 1 consists of 18 occupa­
tions beginning with “ maintenance of way inspectors (37)” and end­
ing with “ crossing and bridge flagmen and gatemen (124).” Group
2 consists of 7 beginning with “ machinists (77)” and ending with
“ skilled trades’ helpers (80) ” Group 3 consists of “ clerical employees
(all departments) (9-10-11-12-13-14).” Group 4 consists of 13,
beginning with “ enginemen, passenger (141)” and ending with
“ brakemen, yard (140).” Group 5 consists of “ telegraph depart­
ment employees (95-96-97).”
In 1922 the total killed in group 1 was 64. Of this number 45 were
“ track and roadway section laborers (52)” and 6 were “ crossing and
bridge flagmen and gatemen (124).” The total injured in this year
was 1,716, of which 1,225 were track and roadway section laborers,
136 were bridge and building carpenters, and 131 were laborers, extra
gang and work train. The total killed was highest (66) in 1924 and
lowest (55) in 1925 and 44 in the first nine months in 1927. The
total injured was highest (2,074) in 1925 and lowest (1,716) in 1922
and 1,145 in the first nine months of 1927.
The average number of employees in group 1 by years was 33,847
in 1922, the number by occupations ranging from 5 for “ regular
apprentices (M. of W. and S.) (44)” to 18,270 for “ track and road­
way section laborers (52)” ; 35,148 in 1923; 30,945 in 1924; 31,372 in
1925; 33,579 in 1926; and 34,608 in the first nine months of 1927.
The rate per 1,000 killed of the total employees in group 1 was 1.9
in 1922; 1.7 in 1923; 2.1 in 1924; 1.7 in 1925; 1.6 in 1926; and 1.3 in the
first nine months in 1927, and per 1,000 injured was 50.7 in 1922;
56.3 in 1923; 61.9 in 1924; 66.1 in 1925; 56.1 in 1926; and 33.1 in the
first nine months in 1927. The rate per 1,000 killed by occupations in
group 1 was highest in bridge and building painters (4.8 in 1923; 8.4
in 1925) and lowest in gang or section foremen (0.5 per 1,000 in 1923;
0.8 in 1924; 1.3 in 1925; 1.0 in 1926; and 1.3 in the first nine months
in 1927).

INCREASES REQUESTED BY EMPLOYEES AND COST TO
GRANT REQUEST
The figures in Table 21 show the amount of the increase in rates of
pay requested by each specified class of employees on the Pennsylvania
Railroad, the approximate monthly increase in cost, and per cent
increase that would be made should the request be granted or that
would be made should rates be increased 1 cent per hour. Hours
paid for and compensation for such hours at the rates of pay in effect
when the request for the increase in wage rates was made are also
presented in this table.
Reading the first line in the table it is seen that the average number
of assistant track foremen for the year, November, 1926, to October,
1927, inclusive, was 607; that they were paid for 121,728 hours of
“ straight time” actually worked, for 5,718 hours of “ overtime” at
pro rata rates, for 5,117 hoursof “ overtime” at punitive rates, and for
2,137 hours of “ time paid for but not worked,” a total of 134,700 hours
paid for in the year. The compensation or earnings for the year were
$64,394 for “ straight time,” $3,025 for “ overtime” at pro rata rates,
$4,060 for “ overtime” at punitive rates, $1,130 for “ time paid for
but not worked” — a total of $72,609. The assistant track foremen
asked for an increase of 5 cents per hour. To grant the request would
cost the Pennsylvania Railroad an increase of $6,863 per month, or an
increase of 9.5 per cent in the rates of the employees in this occupa­
tion alone. To grant an increase of 1 cent per hour would cost the
road an increase in this occupation of $1,373 per month or 1.9 per cent.

22*— Amount of increase requested by employees of each specified class, approximate monthly cost to grant the request or to increase rates
1 cent per hour, based on hours paid for and compensation reported by the Interstate Commerce Commission for year, November, 1926, to
October, 1927
