w WAGES OF TAILORESSES: There came into operation through- out the country this week the mini- mum rates of wages for tailoresses em- ployed in the wholesale bespoke and ready-made tailoring trade fixed under the Trade Board Act, 1912. The new rate is 3. an hour, instead of 3]d.. as hitherto. Payment of the extra farthing an hour came into limited operation last July, but the Board of Trade will now, as provided by the Act, make the higher rate obligatory on all concerned. In addition to the wholesale trade the retail bespoke tailoring trade now comes within the scope of the Trade Boards Act and the minimum rates for this section, which are in operation are. the same as for the wholesale trade.
