The Education Industry in Puerto Rico. An Economic Report.
Sullivan, Terry W.
The policy of the Fair Labor Standards Act is to eventually establish the same minimum wage standards in Puerto Rico as in the 50 states. Pursuant to this policy, this report was prepared for Industry Committee No. 129-A for the Education Industry in Puerto Rico. It contains economic and other data pertinent to the committee's duties. The minimum wage requirements cover school employees such as clerical workers, secretaries, custodial workers, maintenance employees, cafeteria workers, and teachers' aides. Executive, administrative, and professional employees are exempt from the minimum wage and overtime provision of the act. The report contains minimum wage rates under both the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Commonwealth Mandatory Decree. It presents information gathered in a 1975 survey of Puerto Rican private schools. Data concern number of employees, amount of earnings, union agreements, and school income reports. Two short sections on public schools contain brief information on number of public schools and students, employee minimum salaries, and personnel and students at the University of Puerto Rico. The Consumer Price Index for four years is included. (Author/JM)
