than in 1913; 117 per cent higher than in 1910; and 129 per cent
higher than in 1907.

UNION SCALE OE WAGES AND HOURS OF LABOR, MAY 15, 1921.

The hours per week are stated in this report for 91 trades and
occupations or subdivisions, and groups of trades and occupations.
Of this number 28 had a reduction, 5 had an increase, and 58 had no
change in working hours between May 15, 1920, and May 15, 1921.

The foregqing statements, concerning changes in rates and hours
apply to the average for each trade, or subdivision or group as a
whole. They must not be ^Understood, however, as applying to each
and every local union in the trade.

There are 5,968 wage quotations tabulated for 1921, of which 51
show no comparable data for 1920, either because there were no
effective scales on May 15, 1920, or because the unions were not
then organized. Of the 5,917 wage quotations for which there are
comparable data for 1920, 3,174 had not changed during the year,
and 2,743 had changed in rates or hours or both of these items.
There are 710 instances of a reduction in weekly rates in 1921 as com­
pared with 1920, 619 instances of reduction.in rates per hour, and 46
instances of an increase in hours of labor. Of the 46 instances of
increase in hours of labor 14 occurred in chauffeurs, teamsters, and
drivers’ unions, 14 in metal trades, 13 in building trades, 2 in line­
men’s unions, 1 in freight handlers’ unions, 1 in millwork trades,
and 1 in the newspaper printing trades.
This is the tenth bulletin published by the Bureau of Labor Sta­
tistics on the subject of union scales of wages and hours of labor. A
list follows showing the serial number of union-wage reports, the
bulletin number, the date of the scales included, and the number of
cities reported.

The asterisks in the preceding list indicate the cities added since the
first report. Under each trade in Table A the cities appear in the
order as listed.
A few trades not appearing in Bulletin No. 131 were added in
Bulletin No. 143. In Bulletin No. 171 the scope of the inquiry was
materially enlarged, four new groups of occupations being included:
Brewery and bottling-house workmen; chauffeurs, teamsters, and
drivers; freight handlers; and soft-drink establishment employees.
A few trades were added in Bulletin No. 194, a few in Bulletin
No. 214, and in Bulletin No. 245 four trades were included for the
first time—mosaic and terrazzo workers, ship carpenters, glaziers, and
photo-engravers. In Bulletin No. 259 the scales for brewery and
bottling-house workmen and soft-drink establishment employees
were discontinued and the scales for laundry workers, theatrical
employees, and waiters were included for the first time. Bulletins
No. 274 and No. 286 presented practically the same trades and occu­
pations as Bulletin No. 259. In this report the scales for theatrical
employees and waiters are discontinued and linemen and street rail­
way motormen and conductors are included.
The several trades and occupations for which the union scales are
given in this bulletin are shown in the table next following.
This table shows for each trade, and for each year for which data
are available, the per cent of increase or decrease in rates of wages
per week on full time in 1920, as compared with each of the 14 years
preceding, in all cities covered, taken collectively.

The union scale, as the term is here used, is a statement, either
written or definitely understood, of wages and hours of labor agreed
to or accepted by an organization of union men and an employer or
group of employers, under which agreement,, expressed or implied,
union men actually work. The union scale usually fixes the limit
in only one direction. It sets a minimum wage and a maximum of
hours for a regular day’s work. This report shows such minimum
wage and maximum hours as are established by the agreed or accepted
scale. In certain cities and trades, however, some workmen, and in



6

UNION SCALE OF WAGES AND HOURS OF LABOR, MAY 15, 1921.

some few instances all or nearly all workmen, actually are paid more
than the scale, and in some instances employees work less than the
scale hours. As a general rule, however, the union scale represents
the prevailing wage of a locality for efficient labor,
In addition to ordinary increases in wages, a considerable number
of increases were reported in 1918 as war bonuses. Nearly all of
these, and some other bonuses, were in effect in 1919 and in 1920.
In 1921 some of the bonuses had been made a part of the regular
scale, some had been modified, and some were carried as emergency
or cost of living bonuses. In such cases where bonuses were definitely
reported in one fixed amount and were to remain in effect indefinitely,
§uch bonuses were combined with the regular rate. If the increases
were various or indefinite, or applied only to some individuals or to
only a part of the union membership, the general rate was entered
in the table as the scale, and the bonuses mentioned in footnotes.
In cases where the returns showed that a considerable percentage
of the membership received more than the scale, the facts, so far as
ascertainable, are stated in footnotes, which are generally selfexplanatory, such as “more than half received more; amount not
reported,” “ nominal rate, all received more; average $35,” “ 25 per
cent received $4 more per week,” etc. No note is made where the
number who received the higher rate embraced less than 25 per cent
of the membership of the union. Agreements sometimes provide
that old or infirm men may work for less than the scale.
The observance of Labor Day as a holiday is so general and the
fact is so widely understood that it was deemed unnecessary to refer
to the many agreements which prohibit the performance of ordinary
work on that day. However, in instances where the prohibition of
work had been extended to other days or parts of days, such as July
4 and Saturday afternoon and also included Labor Day, the condi­
tions have been stated in footnotes.
The rates of wages of railroad-shop employees included herein are
the rates awarded by the United States Railroad Labor Board, on
July 20, 1920, made retroactive to May 1, 1920, and not rates agreed
upon by negotiation between employers and unions in the usual way
of arriving at a union scale. The railroad rates are shown, however,
for only such cities as have union members employed in railroad shops.
In the printing trades of compositor and machine operator con­
tracts are found in certain cities in which there are maximum hours
stated that may not be exceeded except by payment of an overtime
rate, and a minimum of hours for which work must be provided or
payment made when a man undertakes a day’s work. When such
contract exists, there may be further a commonly accepted working
time, within the limits provided, so well established that such time
is in effect the standard working-day. In such instances the tabu­
lation shows such actual working hours, and notes state the maxi­
mum and minimum hours.
No scale is published here unless it was so far established that at
least 50 per cent of the members of the union were receiving the
scale or above it. Information obtained on this question indicates
that an insignificant number of union members were working for less
than the scale, while a considerable number were receiving more than
the scale. Some trades were not organized in certain cities, and
some were organized only in part. When organized in part, with a
scale in force for such men as were organized, the scale is published.



7
The union scales presented in this report are almost entirely timerate scales. Piece-rate scales are published for machine operators
and machinist operators, printing trades, and lathers only. These
occupations have simple units of payment which are commonly under­
stood. Some trades, especially the metal trades, work to a consider­
able extent on piece rates. Such rates are so great in number and
the units of payment so variable that it is not practicable to quote
them. The earnings at piece rates usually exceed the full-time earn­
ings at the time rates of the trade. For localities where piece rates
prevail almost exclusively and the time rate provided for in the
scale is only infrequently paid, such time rate has not been tabulated.
The terms of time-rate scales as agreed to by employers and tradeunions state wages for different units of time. Some scales designate
the rates of wages by the hour, others by the day, week, or month.
To make comparison easy, the varying rates have been reduced to
both an hourly rate and a weekly rate.
The general table shows the rates of wages per hour and the rates
per week on full time, the rates for overtime, Sunday, and holiday
work, the regular hours for a full day, for Saturday, and for a full
week, and the number of months in the year for which the agreement
provided for a Saturday half holiday. When for a period of more
than three months of the year the numbers of hours differed from
those shown for May, the difference has been noted in the table.
Nearly all the information here published was obtained by special
agents of this bureau in personal visits to business agents and secre­
taries of the respective trade-unions in the several cities. The State
labor bureaus of Massachusetts, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, for their
own purposes, collect union wage scales within their respective States.
To avoid duplication of field work in these States, the State and
Federal bureaus cooperated.
*
In Pennsylvania agents of the State bureau worked with an agent
of this bureau and the data were obtained by personal visits to the
trade-unions. A copy of all data collected was returned both to the
State and Federal offices. The Ohio data were collected entirely by
the Ohio bureau by personal visits of special agents. The Massa­
chusetts bureau collected its data in part by correspondence* and in
part by sending out special agents. Both Massachusetts and Ohio
furnished copies of their data to this bureau.
In the work of this bureau and of the three State bureaus wage
scales, written agreements, and trade-union records were consulted
wherever available. The field work involved an interview with the
officials of about 2,200 local unions.
Scales for apprentices are not shown, but scales for helpers are
given in a number of trades. In some trades the work of helpers is
performed in part by apprentices. Whenever it is found that the
work of helpers is largely done by apprentices, the scales for such
helpers are omitted.
An inspection of the general table shows a great variation for some
occupations in trade terms and classifications in different cities. For
example, bakers in some cities are classed as first hands, second hands,
and third hands; in other cities as mixers, benchmen, oven men, etc.
The difference in occupation name makes a comparison between cities
difficult. Inquiry has shown that the terms first hand, second
hand, etc., do not cover identical work in different cities where these
terms are used. Certain work may be considered first-hand work in

one city and second-hand work in another city. Of necessity, this
bureau has followed the terminology of each city.
There are also great variations m classification and in the extent
of subdivision of chauffeurs, teamsters, and drivers, and of book­
binding and presswork occupations, making comparison of city with
city quite difficult; and similar conditions, less in degree, are found
in several other trades.
General Table A, pages 64 to 219, shows 2,743 instances of changes
in scales during the year ending May 15, 1921, either as to wage
rates or hours, or both, out of a total of 5,917 scale statements in which
there are comparable data. A table is here given summarizing these
2,743 changes as they affected each of the three phases of the scale—
wages per hour, earnings per week, and hours per week. The changes
in the small number of piece-rate scales quoted in this report are
included in this table on the same basis as the time-rate scales.

INDEX NUMBERS.

From the foregoing table it is seen that of the 94 changes reported
in the bakery trade scales, 65 effected an increase and 29 a decrease
in wages per hour; 61 resulted in an increase and 29 in a decrease
in earnings per week, the increase in the hourly rate in 4 instances
being offset by a reduction in the number of hours worked; and 6
produced a decrease and 88 no change in the number of hours per
week. The other items of the table are read in like manner.
Owing to shifting of trips and variation of hours in the operation
of street cars, the hours per week and rates per week of motormen
and conductors are omitted from this report. Of the 112 changes
reported in this group, 75 effected an increase and 37 a decrease in
rates per hour. For the purposes of this table it has been assumed
that a change in the hourly rates in the street railway group resulted
in a corresponding change in the weekly rates; therefore the changes
in weekly rates are tabulated as coincident with the changes in hourly
rates. No hours per week having been reported for these 112 cases,
they have not been MLcluded in the totals for that item.
Expressed in percentages of the total of 2,743 changes, 75.4 per
cent resulted in increases and 22.6 per cent in decreases in wages per
hour; 69.7 per cent made increases and 25.9 per cent decreases in
earnings per week; and 1.5 per cent made increases and 20.6 per
cent decreases in the hours per week.
INDEX NUMBERS.
UNION SCALE OF WAGES AND HOURS OF LABOR IN ALL CITIES.

A table of index numbers (percentages) has been computed to
show for all cities taken collectively the extent of the changes that
have occurred from year to year in the occupations included in this
report. To make it convenient to compare war and readjustment
conditions with normal conditions closely preceding the war it was
deemed desirable to use as the base, or 100, the figures for 1913.
Occupations for which the bureau has no figures as far back as 1913
are omitted from the table, since the figures for 1913 are used as a
base.
Referring to Table 3, which follows, it is seen that the average rate
of wages per week on full time for all bakers on May 15, 1921, was
245 per cent of the average rate in 1913, or 145 per cent higher. The
rate in 1907 was 85 per cent of the rate in 1913; thus from 1907 to
1921 the index number changed from 85 to 245. This explanation
will apply to all the years and all the index numbers in the table.
These index numbers were derived from the actual wages and
hours in all the localities which supplied comparable data. In mak­
ing the computations the actual wages and hours of each trade in
each city for 1920 and 1921, were weighted (multiplied) bythe number
of union members employed in the trade in the city in 1921 each year,
respectively. The products for the several cities were added together
for each year, producing aggregate wages and hours for the trade in
each of the years. The aggregate wages and hours for each trade
were then divided by the aggregate number of union members
reported in the trade to obtain averages for each year. The per
cent of change in these averages indicates the change for the trade as
a whole between 1920 and 1921. This percentage was then applied



10

UNION SCALE OF WAGES AND HOURS OE LABOR, MAY 15, 1921.

to the index number for 1920, as previously computed in the
preceding report, thus bringing down to 1921 the index number for
each trade or occupation.
It should be borne in mind that the index numbers in Table 3
are percentages, not actual hours or amounts of money. In study­
ing this table its three parts should be observed. Thus, referring
again to bakers for illustration, it is seen that the index number for
hours per week decreased from 111 in 1907 to 90 in 1921, and that the
index number for rate of wages per hour increased from 76 in 1907
to 279 in 1921. The reduction in hours partly offsets the increase of
wages per hour; thus the index number for rates of wages per week
increased from 85 in 1907 to 245 in 1921 as compared with 76 to 279,
the increase in the index number for rates of wages per hour.
Caution should be used in considering these index numbers. A
subtraction of index numbers does not represent the per cent of
increase or decrease between the different years. For example,
the index number for rate of wages per week of takers in 1907 was 85,
as compared with 245 in 1921, making an increase of 160 points in the
index number. One hundred and sixty is 188 per cent of 85, thus
making the increase in 1921 over 1907, 188 per cent, as shown in
Table 1, pages 4 and 5.

GENERAL INDEX.

A table of index numbers is now presented in which are combined
the data for all localities and for all occupations except street-railway
motormen and conductors, which are omitted because of incomplete
data, especially as to hours.
The data of preceding reports have been used so as to produce a
series of general index numbers from 1907 to 1921. The method of
computation is the same as used in computing the index numbers
of the several occupations as explained on pages 9 and 10.

In the preparation of the above index numbers of rates of wages
and of hours of labor the numbers were extended to two decimal
places for closer accuracy in computation, but in the tables published
the decimals of the indexes have been dropped, so that the indexes
appear as whole numbers.
An index number is, as before stated, a percentage computed from
the actual figures for each year compared with a base year. In
Table 4 the figures for 1913 are made the base, as was done in Table
3, pages 10 to 16, in order that later conditions may be compared
readily with normal conditions closely preceding the war.
As some readers may desire to start comparisons with the initial
year, a table of index numbers computed from the same basic figures
is given with 1907 taken as the base, or 100.

UNION SCALE OF WAGES AND H O U R S OF LABOR, MAY 15, 1921.

UNION SCALE OF WAGES AND HOURS OF LABOR FOR SELECTED TRADES
IN 13 CITIES.

Index numbers have also been prepared for each of 13 important
cities. In Table 6 the data for selected trades in each of these, cities
have been consolidated in general index numbers from 1907 to 1921.
In Table 7 actual rates and hours and index numbers for rates and
hours are given through the same period of time for each of the
several trades consolidated in Table 6. The trades included in this
table number from 14 to 22 in the different cities. The figures for
preceding years are drawn from earlier bulletins. In these two tables
1907 is taken as the basis of comparison, or 100.
