A Collection of Decisions Presenting Principles of Wage Settlement

Excerpt

The objects and hopes which have inspired this collection of decisions in wage disputes are set forth in the general introduction to the collection and need not be repeated here. It is an attempt to put into order, so necessary for analysis and judgment, the large variety of contentions, principles and theories which are supported in wage controversies. Its arrangement is an experiment; it was designed to bring out the relationship of each of these contentions, principles and theories to the others.

No systematic effort has been made in the introductory notes scattered throughout the collection to analyze at length their economic characteristics and consequences. An earlier attempt of that kind was made in the author's "Principles of Wage Settlement."

My greatest obligation is to the many authors (unnamed in the text) of the decisions reprinted, for it is their thought which has been my guide in this collection. I am grateful besides for the personal encouragement many of them have given me in this enterprise. It may be that these men are the forerunners of a new profession. I desire to make special acknowledgment of the aid given me by Mr. Francis A. Bird, of the United Typothetae of America in securing the texts of the arbitration proceedings in the Printing Trades, to Mr. Benjamin M. Squires for similar aid in regard to the Clothing Industries and to Mr. Chas. B. Barnes in regard to the industries which he serves as Impartial Chairman. To Mr. George B. Soule of The Labor Bureau, Inc., my thanks are due for calling my attention to the Report on "Wages and Production" which is printed in part as a Supplementary Note. Mr. Daniel Bloomfield's warm interest has helped me in pushing the collection forward to publication.
