Congressman Barden on Minimum Wage

Record #:
As the Congressman representing North Carolina, Graham Barden discusses his views on minimum wage in a speech give to the Committee on Education and Labor in 1955. Baren argues that minimum wage should not result in price fixing, destroy small business, or create misery in some areas, but should be enough to compensate for appropriate labor. In this case, the argument is for a minimum wage of 90 cents.
