ANNUAL DIGEST OF SUIE
AND FEDERAL LEGISLATION
(Enacted September 1, 1947, to |
November 15, 1948.)
Workmen's compensation and
child labor legislation held the
limelight in 1948 when ten States
and Puerto Rico met in regular
legislative sessions, according te
the “Annual Digest of State and
Federal Labor Legislation” just
issued by the Bureaen of Labor
Standards, U. S. Department of
Labor, as its Bulletin No. 101.1
Several States held special ses- 1
sions, but no labor legislation was
Most significant was the pas
sage of a workmen’s compensa
tion law in Mississippi, with the
result that every State in the Un,
ion now has such a law. Ex
isting workmen's compensation
laws were amended in six other
States. The child-labor laws of
Kentucky and Virginia were re
vised and standards for the em
ployment of children were raised.
Other laws included < a disabil
ity compensation act in -New Jer
sey and changes in the indus
trial home-work statute in Rhode
Island. Although introduced in
several States, no legislation re
stricting activities o trade un
ions was enacted. The Louisi
ana Legislature repealed a 1946
law of the regulat-ory type, and
passed a law providing for medi
ation of labor disputes. A new I
act prohibits /transportation of
strikebreakers into that State.

which concisely summarizes 1948
labor legislation, may be obtained

1. TAFT-HARTLEY ACT — \Ye favor outright repeal
of the Taft-Hartley Act with simultaneous reenactment of
the National I^abor Relations Act. We also urge Congress
to repeal the Hobbs Act and the Lea Act.
2. HOUSING—We seek enactment of a comprehensive
housing program. This includes rent control.
!■ FOREIGN POLICY-—We endorse the President’s firm
policy toward Russia as the only practical way to attain
eventual world peace. We want Congress to appropriate
sufficient funds to permit the ECA to carry on its work
to a successful conclusion.
4. INFLATION CONTROL—We prefer voluntary meth
ods to resumption of price controls, which should be em
ployed only as a last resort. If taxes should be increased,
the burden should be placed upon those best able to pay
Taxes in low-income groups, who were given the least mea
sure of relief in the last tax law, should not be raised.
5. SOCIAL JUSTICE PROGRAM—The Executive Coun
cil favors broad improvements in the social security sys
tem, a national health program, disability insurance, a na
tionalized unemployment compensation system, increase of
the minimum wage to $1 an hour with broader coverage of
the Fair Labor Standards Act, an effective billion-dollar
program of Federal aid to education and continuation of
the school lunch program. Also we call upon Congress to
adopt the President's Civil Rights program.
6. NATIONAL DEFENSE — The Executive Council
pledges full support of a truly adequate national defense
program for all branches of the armed services. We feel
also that Congress should give attetnion to the need for
an expanded merchant ship construction program and the
safeguarding of a strong American merchant marine by
subsidies. This ship construction program should be fairly
distributed in the varous areas of the country.
7. NATURAL RESOURCES—As part of our natonal de
fense program and as an essential step toward an expand
ing American economy, a constructive program for the de
velopment and protection of our natural resources should
be adopted by Congress. This includes power develop
ment, soil conservation and reclamation, irrigation and
flood control. We favor creation of river valley authorities,
smilar to the outstandingly successful TVA, to do this job.
We also call upon Congress to encourage development of
research for the harnessing of atomic energy to industrial
8. GOVERNMENT EMPLOYE LEGISLATION — Thh
AFL will support legislation to raise the standards and
improve the conditions of government employes.
9. LABOR DEPARTMENT—We* favor transfer to this
department of the functions and agencies which properly
belong to it, to the end that the Department of Labor may
once more become an effective instrument for the protec
tion of the wage earners of the Nation.
10. There are any number of additional measures and
proposals in which the Federation takes an active interest
for or against. For instance, we will urge liberalization of
the Displaced Persons Act, support the establishment of a
National Science Foundation, etc. Therefore, the omission
of any particular measure from this summary of major
legislative objectives, should not and does not imply any
lack of interest on our part.
