course, for employers in many cases to shorten working hours The plan also provides
for certain minimum wage scales which also in many cases will mean added labor costs
for the employer.
The Presidents agreement, however. Includes a pledge of cooperation from the con­

txpense as the direct result of his agreement with the president will gain added patre­
nag e as the just reward of hta public spirited attitude.
The fact atso Is to be borne In mind thal where all employers m l together to put
people hack on their payrolls or to raise wages, no employer, as the President himself
has pointed out. will suffer because the relative level of compatlve cost will advance
