Wages and Hours and Forest Conservation
Abstract:The Wage and Hour Law, as discussed in this article, opens new channels through which timberland owners, foresters in private employ, and those working for public agencies must operate. The author gives a record of events leading up to the Administrator's interpretation of the law as applied to forest fire fighters. The line of reasoning may eventually apply to planting and silvicultural operations. This first official interpretation, however, promises to be of special significance in future relations between the federal government, the states, and the forest industries.
