Owners Boston Man Tells How His Store Benefits
by Paying Workers Fair Salaries.
A minimum wage would:
Help the worker;
Be paid by the consume'r;
Prove a real benefit .for de
partment store owners.
So says one of the world's
greatest department store men;

hires 2,500 workers came out for the
minimum wage of $8 a week yester

mum wage benefits the big business
interests.

the employes under a minimum
wage is sufficient to make up for the
increase in wages which business
must pay.

mum wage commission," declared Fi
lene, who was in Chicago on a mis
sion for the national chamber of
commerce to western financiers.

and will soon he raised to $8.50. .,
