Some Figuares Given.
Washington, Feb. 'I.-At n'.o tim'e
lave the wage rates of farm labor been
is high In this country as they were
.n 1919, certainly as far back as 1866,
Ahen the -lirst investigation of this
itbject was made by the United States
lepartment of agriculture. Averages
lor the United States are in mind, in
the compilation of present figures, and
not local rates. For labor hired by the
month with board, the' average rate
was $36.82, and among the geographic
ilivisions the rate was as low as $30.54
in the South Atlantic and as high as
$62.96 in the Western, including the
.\ ountain and Pacific states. Without
board, the average for the Uiled
States was $56.29, and the lowest was
$4.1.03 in the South Atlantic states,
aid tile iighest $87.12 In the Western.
Extras, s11c1 as firewood, milk, etc.,
;Irv not inciluded,
l-larvest wages per (lay with board
reaclhed the top figure of $1.48 in the
North Central states west of the M is
sissippi river id the lowest, $2.28, in
the, South Atlantic, atd the averag('
for the ITilted Stat(s was $3.15. With
out board the average for the United
States was $5.83.
IStatements in similar form for day
wages for work outside of harvest
with board, make the Uiited States
average $2.15, that of the North 'Ceii
tral states, west of tihe .\lississippi
river, $3.22 and of the South Atlantic
While tile lowest farm wages are in
the South Atlantic states and next to
the lowest in the South Central states,
it is interesting to note that the great
est percentage of gain iII rates in 1919
over 1918 among all the groups of
states, was inl the latter grou p and
that Iext to the greatest gain was in
the former grou p.
Inl the farming operations of 1919
