NOTE

This bulletin is designed for use in conjunction with Women's Bureau Bulletin No. 267,
"State Minimum-Wage Laws and Orders," containing in part I, an analysis of statutory provisions,
as well as a summary of historical developments; and in part II, an analysis of rates and
coverage.
In addition, many State minimum-wage laws and orders establish supplementary provisions
designed to safeguard the basic minimum-wage rates. Among these supplementary provisions are
requirements governing: Overtime pay and minimum daily wage; extra pay for split shifts and
long overall spread of hours; minimum meal and rest periods; pay for waiting time and travel
time; handling of tips and gratuities; maximum deductions for meals, lodging, and uniforms; and
other special provisions affecting working conditions.
In most minimum-wage States, these provisions, which are in effect a form of fringe benefit,
have been established by wage orders for individual industries and occupations. In some States,
supplementary provisions of this type are set forth in the minimum-wage statute itself. Where
similar provisions are established by other laws for women and are aoolicable to occupations for
which minimum-wage rates are in effect, they are shown by State in the Appendix.
Most State minimum-wage laws and orders apply only to women and minors; those that apply
also to men are indicated.
The major work on this bulletin was done by Regina M. Neitzey of the Division of Women's
Labor Law aid Civil and Political Status.
