NOTE

This chart analysis is designed primarily for use in connection
with Women's Bureau Bulletin 247j "State Minimum—Wage Laws and OrderSj"
which contains an analysis of the occupation or industry covered by
each wage orderj the class of employee covered., wage rates., and hours
of work.
It supersedes a similar report issued in 1953., numbered D-67.
The analysis in this companion study shows for each wage order
the many additional., supplementary provisions aTfecting wages and working
conditions: Overtime and minimum daily wage; split shifts and overall
spread of hours; meal and rest periods; waiting time and travel; tips
and gratuities; meals and lodging; uniforms; and other similar special
provisions.
Most State minimum—wage laws and orders apply only to women and
minors. Orders that apply also to men are marked with an asterisk.
The major work on this bulletin was done by Hazel Hansen of the
Division of Women's Labor Law and Civil and Political Status.
