<br />Dear Sir:: At our regular meeting.,, action was taken protesting the setting .of a forty cent,
<br />per hour-wage scale for common labor*"
<br />The union wage scale of the common laborers, fifty cents per hour, was accepted
<br />asbthe prevailing wage scales on government-work heregand on a former ocassion the City count$
<br />appr6ved of fifty cents which ist the union scale,of the Common Laborers local union.#645- to
<br />approve of a lower scale would be,to jeopardize.these workers.
<br />Organized labor during these times of stress has txied'to maintain the Americam
<br />standard of living , things are now on the upgrade, and wagesz are supposed to increase, instea
<br />of decrease with;kriaies-increasing steadily fifty cents per hour is a very conservative wages
<br />and it is hoped that the City Council, will not go- against its former position in this matter,
<br />We hope for your co operation in ttLis.matter in behalf of the common laborers,,
<br />Very respectfully, Edwin Turnockt President M. Lo darn6rs.aSee

<br />Dear Sirs: Mr, Charlers,A* Jordan has employed us to collect his account with the Anviation
<br />Commission for the removal and reconstruction of the hangars from the aviation field east of
<br />the city to the Bendix Airport. You have his I bill, which is in excess of #1,400.001,
<br />Mr. Jordan is a man of limited means and owes a considerable portion-of this., We
<br />money to laborers who worked with him, all of whom are desperately in need of their money,
<br />can hardly conceive of any reason why Mr' Jordan and his employees-are held-out of their money
<br />a3id, while it is their desire�to be lreas;nables, nevertheless, on account of the manner in whic
<br />this account has been delayed, we must ask that he be paid not later June 296' Otherwise, it wi
<br />be our duty to take proper legal action to collect
<br />We are addressing this letter to each body that we believe has any interest in
<br />the subject matter* Very truly yours, Jones, Obenchain & Butler
