WAGE LAW VOID
The United States supreme court
on Monday delivered a decision de
claring unconstitutional an act of
congress fixing minimum wages for
women and minor girto in the Dis
trict of Columbia. The decision to
of general interest because it to be
lieved to affect adversely similar
minimum wage legislation in 13
states, including Oregon.
The court was divided five to three,
with Judge Brandeto not participat
ing in the decision. Justice Suther
land read the opinion which was con
curred in by Justices McKenna, Van
Devanter, McReynolds and Butler.
Chief Justice Taft delivered a dis
senting opinion for himself and
also dissented in an opinion follow
ing in the main that of the chief
The majority based its position
broadly upon the right of contract,
insisting that while laws could be
enforced to regulate working con
ditions, the employer and the em
ploye must be free of legal restraint
in determining between themselves
what wages are acceptable.
The minority contended that there
was no greater pol.ee power in con
gress and the state legislatures to
regulate working conditions than to
regulate wages, and that as there
had been wide uniformity in holding
that working conditions could be
prescribed by law-making bodies, it
followed, in their judgment, that
wages were also a proper subject for
The Oregon law, which it to be
lieved, has been invalidated by the
decision, was enacted in 1913, and was
unanimously upheld by the supreme
court of this state. On appeal to the
United States supreme court the
court divided four to four. Justice
Brandeis abstaining from voting,
then as now, because he had taken
part in the preparation of the case
before he became a member of the
court. The failure of the high court
to invalidate the law left it in opera
tion. Under its provisions a minimum
weekly wage of $13.20 for a 48-hour
week has been established for women
workers in Oregon.
