Wegmann has added his endorsement to the Postal Salary Plan recently recom- mended to the Congress by Post- master General Arthur E. Summer- field. This pay plan was developed after an examination and study was made of the postal salary structure. It is not intended to be a general salary increase but is a proposal for establishing a sound pay struc- ture based on the principal of equal pay for equal work. It is intended to correct many in- equities which have grown up over the years between different types of jobs and to provide opportunities for advancement and greater earn- ings. "As a result of the installation df the proposed plan," states Post- master Wegmann, "nearly all em- ployees would receive some immedi- ate increase by adjustment of their present salaries to new step rates. No employee's salary would be re- duced. The recommeded salary plan is designed to pay each employee in direct relation to the difficulty and responsibility of his position. o o lqG C MRS.
