Transcript WAGES AND THE COST OF LIVING COST OF LIVING $800 TO $900 PER YEAR AVERAGE WAGES $300 TO $600 PER YEAR [The following is from an editorial in the American Magazine of September, 1911. The conclusions reached are supported by a very exhaustive study made by Prof. Scott Nearing of the University of Toledo, in his book "Wages in the United States." After a searching analysis of the family budgets of three hundred and sixteen working men's families living in New York, Dr. Chapin says: "An income under $800 is not enough to permit the maintenance of a normal standard. Whether an income between $800 and $900 can be made to suffice is a question to which our data do not warrant a dogmatic answer. An income of $900 or over probably permits the maintenance of a normal standard, at least so far as the physical man is concerned. Studies in Homestead, Buffalo, and Baltimore confirm for these cities the conclusion for New York City. A family can, therefore, maintain efficiency on about $3 a day in the leading eastern cities. This statement is interesting, but it can never be truly effective until we learn how many men get $3 per day. The most, reliable average wage data are furnished by Massachusetts and New Jersey, Michigan, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania. A study of these shows that the average wages of all employees range, in the leading industries, from $450 to $600 per year—seldom rising above the latter figure except in industries like petroleum and malt liquors, for which considerable skill is required and in which males only are employed; seldom falling below except in industries like confectionery and paper boxes, which employ a majority of women, and in which the average annual earnings is less than $400. In view of all of the evidence, it is fair to say that the adult male wage workers in the industries of that section of the United States lying east of the Rockies and north of the Mason and Dixon Line receive a total average annual wage of about 39
