This article comments on the findings of the report released by Murray Latimer and colleagues on guaranteed wages in the U.S. in 1947. The report, which proposes the extension of the wage plan, does not consider guaranteed wages as a solution to unemployment. The report also recommends that a maximum work week be established through collective bargaining. Included in the discussion was the relationship of guaranteed wages to unemployment compensation. In concluding this aspect of the report, it was said that the adoption of wage plans would be ineffective in case of the adoption of supplementation.
