The Division obtains compliance with minimum standards respecting wages, hours, and other employment conditions in industries engaged in interstate commerce and in certain establishments furnishing goods to the Government.

1. Enforcement.--Information media are used to inform employers and employees of their rights and responsibilities under the law. Investigations are made to correct violations and to assist employers in meeting legal requirements and workers in recovering wages due. During 1963 a total of 54,331 establishments were investigated and 312,428 employees were found to be due wages in the amount of $49.1 million of which employers agreed to pay $20.2 million. In 1964, it is anticipated that investigation findings will increase as a result of the greater productivity of trained investigators. An increase of 27 investigators is provided for 1965 to carry out the Division's new responsibilities resulting from the Equal Pay Act.

2. Wage determinations and regulations. During 1964 the minimum wage rates under the Fair Labor Standards Act for 21 industries in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and American Samoa will be reviewed. In 1965, industry committees will review the minimum wage rates of 22 industries in Puerto Rico. Regulations governing special minimum wages for learners, apprentices, messengers, and handicapped workers are being constantly reexamined. It is estimated that applications for special minimum wage certificates will be received at an annual rate of 2,900 during 1964 and 1965. The wage determinations program under the Walsh-Healey Act will be conducted at a level of six determinations in 1964 and 1965. Regulations and interpretations are prepared to give effect to the Fair Labor Standards Act. Emphasis will be directed to development and revision of issuances affected by amendments to the Act and changes in industry practices.
