Wages for a year

February 1952
America;2/16/1952, Vol. 86 Issue 20, p523
The article focuses on the effort of Philip Murray, president of the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO), to put wages on a guaranteed annual basis in the U.S. in 1943. Murray's proposal has led President Franklin D. Roosevelt to order a study of the proposal directed by Murray W. Latimer for the Office of War Mobilization and Reconversion. The study was completed and transmitted to President Harry S. Truman in 1947, which remains the most complete survey of the guaranteed annual wage.
