Wanted—A Wage Standard

Wanted—A Wage Standard.

What other wage standard then, is open to the Arbitration Court? This brings us down to the bed-rock of the matter. Before I suggest the most satisfactory basis, let me impress this upon you. No standard that can be devised is at all a perfect one. It is a choice of the least inadequate, and him who condemns the standard I now outline I would put this question—what better can you propose?"

In my belief, if our compulsory arbitration system is now to continue it must continue to be a wage regulator, and the best standard that can be divised for its guidance is, I think a double, or rather a primary and supplementary standard.
