The author, senior research consultant, Office of the Commissioner, Bureau of Labor Statistics, United States Department of Labor, discusses federal wage policy in relation to private industry, and not federal policy in the determination of wages or salaries for its own employees. He interprets the term "policy" to include legislation that affects directly the wages that private industry must pay, and administrative guidelines designed to help shape private wage decisions. This talk was presented at the 12th Annual Conference on Current Trends in Collective Bargaining, at the University of Tennessee, November 9-10, 1967.
