City Employees May Get Iaise
The City of New York contemplates
a wage increase of $1,147,180 to 18,-
488 municipal employees. This had
not been determined finally.
In each case, in announcing the in-
creases, the concerns said they were
made to enable their employees to
meet the advancing cost of living. E.
H. Gray, chairman of the steel corpora-
"Ordinarily the question of wages
would not come up for consideration
or decision at this time of thle year,
but in consequence of the abnormal
conditions now existing it has been
decided to increase the wage rates of
our iron and steel companies about ten
per cent, effective Dec. 15. As to the
other departments, increases will be
Third Increase in Year.
The increase is the third the com-
pany has made during the year. Its
payroll for 1915 was $176,800,864, the
1916 total will be above $200,000,000
and if high wages continue the 1917
roll will approach,-$250,000,000.
The Eastman Kodak company of
Rochester, N. Y., the Glove Manufac-
turers' association of Gloversville, N.
Y., and the Arlington mills of Lawr-
ence, Mass.. are other concerns which
have made substantial wage increases.
That lesser concerns have taken
similar action is indicated by Chicago
figures, where, according to John W.
O'Leary, president of the Chicago As-
sociation of Commerce, 25 concerns
have made $10,000,000 increases to
100,000 employees during the year.
