Plans to pay braceros $1
an hour drawing criticism
LOS ANGELES UPI -Depart-ment
of Labor plans to pay Mexi
can nationals $1 an hour were
criticized Monday by growers as
being unfair and arbitrary and by
labor as inadequate.
Many opposing views were
heard at tiie Labor Department
hearing attended by nearly 400
representatives of labor and man
agement from California, Oregon,
Nevada and Washington. The hear

Calif., Wednesday. .
Robert Goodwin, head of the La
bor Department's Bureau of Em
ployment Security, said the Mex
ican braceros imported to work
on farms was having an adverse
effect on wages and working con
ditions of domestics.
He said the use of braceros has
kept tiie prevailing wage of both
imported and domestic workers
depressed. Goodwin called this
"artificial stabilization" of work
er's pay for both groups.

which he said would not make it
necessary to depress the domestic
wage rate. Goodwin said other
actors had been used other than
the so-called prevailing wage in
determining a bracero hourly rate.
The wage was criticized as too
low by the AFL-CIO Los Angeles
County Federation of Labor and
the Emergency Committee to Aid
Farm Workers. A spokesman for
the group asked the department
to increase the rate to 11.50 and

attempted to usurp his authority
by fixing a wage rate for bra
ceros. William Gilbert, a spokesman
for AFL-CIO County Federation

$1 wage was "absurdly inade
quate." He called the bracero pro
gram "a windfall for the corpora
tion farm, reaped from the des
perate adversity of the agricultur

Tim Gottlieb, executive vice
president of the Salinas Farmers
Cooperatives, also contended the
labor department was not empow

manner proposed. He said bracer

was a shortage of domestic
"It is foolish to think we would
use bracero labor if we could get
domestic workers to do the same
job," he said.
However, a licensed labor con
tractor, Gilbert Valle, said nearly
3,000 domestic workers in Imperi

Lcland J. Yost, Thermal, was

but domestic workers did not
"flock from those areas to Cali

need foreign workers."

men for West Coast mining inter

mission Tuesday for an increase
in' the $!9-a-flask U.S. tariff on
imports of mercury.
The appeal met immediate ob

One of the strongest appeals for
a tariff increase was made by
Mollis M. Dole, director of the
Oregon State Department of Geol

"If the United States is to have
an effective and reliable source
for mercury, something must be
done to level out the rapid fluc
