A report prepared following the enactment of an Ohio constitutional amendment requiring the state to set a minimum wage. This report summarizes responses to a state-wide survey about women's wages in department stores and other retail establishments, providing statistics on wages by both city and age group. The most common wage was $6 per week, and the most common number of hours worked was 52. An interesting tool in the historical investigation of women's work.
