.Why l"ay Is So Ilig
It works out this way: "Under tho
rules" thero exists In tho railway
passengor servico a monthly guaran
tee that gives thcao men a thirty-day
month no matter how many days they
may actually bo on duty. Specifically
tho rule Is based upon sorao clauses
In an artlclo In "Supplement 25" to
"General Order 27." Theso omployos
are entitled to a wago ot $7 a day.
Their guarantco ot a thirty-day
month brings thorn a minimum of
$210. But their twelve-hour "spread"
adds In overtime enough to mako tho
wage for each working day $'8.75.
For their twenty-six working days
therefore they must hnvo $227.50.
But there Is a dlfferenco ot four
days between tho actual working
tlmo and tho thirty-day month of tho
guarantee. Add In then four times $7
for those days and you reach the
grand total of $255.50.
This is not un Isolated, and It is
an actual, caso. AH of tho New Eng
land roads havo such branch linos,
somo of them longer than slx'ty miles,
others shorter, upon which tho rules
