Transcript I FINDINGS OF INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS COMMISSION From Final Manly Report The Possibility With the inexhaustible natural resources of the United States, her tremendous mechanical achievements, and the genius of her people for organization and industry, there can be no natural reason to prevent every able bodied man of our present population from being well fed, well housed, comfortably clothed, and from rearing a family of moderate size in romfort, health and security.—Page 9, M. Actual Conditions It was found that incomes of two-thirds of the families (64 per cent) were less than $750 per year, and of almost one-third (31 per cent) were less than $500, the average for all being $721. Elaborate studies of the cost of living made in all parts of the country at the same time have shown that the very least that a family of five persons can live upon in anything approaching decency is $700.—Page 10, M. Wages Too Low Seventy-nine per cent of the fathers earned less than $700 per year. In brief, only one-fourth of these fathers could have supported their families on the barest subsistence level without the earnings of other members of the family or income from outside sources.—Page 11, M. American Workers Not Living Decently Furthermore, in 77 per cent of the families two or more persons occupied each sleeping room, in 37 per cent three or more persons and in 15 per cent, four or more persons.—Page 11, M. Children Are Underfed In six of our largest cities from 12 to 20 per cent of the children are noticeably underfed and ill nourished.—Page 12, M. Children of the Poor not Educated Only one-third of the children in our public schools complete the grammar school course, and less than ten per cent finish high school. Those who leave are almost entirely the children of the workers, who, as soon as they reach working age, are thrown, immature, ill-trained and with no practical knowledge, into the complexities of industrial life. In each of the four industrial towns studied by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 75 per cent of the children quit school before reaching the seventh grade.—Page 12, M. Children of the Workers Denied Home Attention In the families of the workers 37 per cent of the mothers are at work, and consequently unable to give their children more than scant attention. r-Page 13, M. 34
