This article reports on the general wage increases received by production and related workers in the U.S. manufacturing industries during the first nine months of 1969. The median wage-decision increase resulting from decisions made during those nine months was 6.2 per cent. This was an increase over the first six months of 1969 and the full year 1968. But the median effective increase, which reflects the combined impact of immediate, deferred, and cost-of-living increases, was 5.0 per cent, slightly lower than the 5.1 per cent recorded for the full year 1968.
