Record #:
In December 1936, under Federal compulsion, North Carolina passed a far reaching bill to provide that taxes be levied on the payrolls of state employers, and benefits put into a reserve fund for the unemployed. A new federal bill, HR 8282, proposes to federalize such programs and put them in the hands of the Labor Department and do away with experience rating and provide that employers pay nearly triple the current rate.
