From the Journal of the House of Representatives,
March 9, 1915 (pp. 547-548)
The Honorable Speaker of the House of Representatives:
Pursuant to section 4 of Act No. 290 of the Public Acts of 1913, I herewith transmit to the House of Representatives the report of the Michigan State Commission of Inquiry into wages and the conditions of labor for women and the advisability of establishing a minimum wage law.
Part II of this report gives a tentative bill for the creation of a Michigan minimum wage commission.
I wish to state at this time that the members of the Commission appointed under the provisions in the above act have given their personal time liberally, without compensation, to a careful and thorough investigation along the lines outlined in their report, and the same merits your careful consideration.
Yours very truly,
Woodbridge N. Ferris
