This leaflet provided information about worker rights under the Wages and Hours Law (U.S. Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938), a landmark law in the social and economic development of the United States. The Law applied to any firm engaged in interstate commerce and set the minimum wage at $.25 an hour, maximum hours, and banned oppressive child labor; it went into effect October 24, 1939. The United Office and Professional Workers of America (UOPWA) was a union of clerical workers, mostly female, and largely in the private sector. It was formed in 1937 by the merger of fourteen American Federation of Labor white collar unions and nine independent unions, totaling 8,600 members. In 1950, it was expelled from the CIO, which accused it of Communist domination. The last page of this leaflet has a list of UOPWA locals on page , with a rubber stamp for Local # 9, with offices at 212 West 3rd Street, Los Angeles.
