ABSTRACT
The article presents a speech given by the author before the Sub-Committee on Labor of the Senate Committee on Labor and Public Welfare on March 8, 1957, commenting on proposed bills for broadening minimum wage coverage of the U.S. Fair Labor Standards Act. According to the author there is the obligation of a government in a democracy, acting on behalf of all citizens, to give needed protection and care to the individual for the benefit both of the individual and his family and the nation as a whole. The Congress has responsibilities to business, to agriculture, to labor and to all of the other segments of our society. One such responsibility according to author is to pass legislation which will give all help to those who are badly in need of help.
