You would foot the bill!
Look out! There's another big rail
road wage demand headed your way I
The non-operating unions alone
whose members do not actually
operate trains are demanding a
flat increase of 20 cents an hour.
These demands would cost the rail
roads of the country five hundred
lixly-eight million dollars a year!
Last year these employes had
an increase of 18'2 cents an
hour. This was their third major
wage increase si lire 1939. Their
average weekly pay has gone up
15, as against a cost-ol'-livi::g
rise of 54.
Since 1939, railroad wage and
material costs have gone up n c )
than three times as much as freip. t
rates, and five times ns much as
passenger fares. That is why in
1946, with the largest peacetime
traffic in history, the net income of
railroads went down to the equiva
lent of only 2J of the net prop
What About 1917?
Even with the recent freight rr.le
increase, preliminary figures indi
cate that the railroads will ma' o
only about the same low return in
1947 as in 1946. This will be beca :
the wape increase made in 1C 10
will be in elluct for all of 1!M7;
special payroll taxes on railroadi
have recently been increased;
and passenger traffic has declined.
