Transcript $600; that this falls to $500 in some of the industries employing the largest number of persons, but rises to $700 or even to $750 in a few highly skilled industries. That the average annual earnings of adult male females in the same area is about $350, with a very slight range, in the industries employing large numbers of adult females. Three-fifths of the women receive less than $8 per week ($400 per year), while a vanishing percentage of them is paid more than $15 per week ($750) per year.

Assuming that each of the fifteen principal com- 40
