BUREAU OF STATISTICS OF LABOR AND INDUSTRIES,

TRENTON, July 1st, 1885. (BLANK No. 3—FOR INDIVIDUAL EMPLOYES.] Without knowledge based on the evidence of statistics, no intelligent action can be taken towards ameliorating the condition of working people; and this Bureau would suggest to every individual worker that it is to his or her own interest, both immediate and remote, to furnish the fullest possible replies to the questions asked in this blank. The itemized cost of living, although apparently insignificant, is of the utmost importance, because by means of household budgets we can most readily determine the purchasing power of wages. Of especial weight in all comparative wage-statistics is also the efficiency of labor—the quantity of work performed in a given period of time; wages, whether nominally high or low, are by themselves no measure of the cost of labor, or of the fact that the workman is well or poorly paid for services rendered. In order to obtain reliable and complete information, the organized bodies of wageearners in this State are earnestly requested to lend the aid of their opportunities and experience in forwarding this work in which they are so directly interested. C. H. SIMMERMAN, Secretary.
