He said the engineer ing firm which represents Charles Town and Ranson and the Jeffer- son County Board of had request- ed the rate scales from the State Departmet of Labor back in Janu ary, but had never received them. He said the new minimum wage scale, was set on the same scale which was used by the construct- ion firms that worked on the new General Motors plant in Mar tinsburg and not the prevaling rate of Berkeley and Jefferson counties. Cain cited a few of the rates proposed in the new wage scale, such as $4.65 per hour for .bricklayers; $3.40 to $4.25 per hour for laborers; $3.25 for water boys; $5.02 per hour for plumber: $3.70 per hour for truck driver~ and $5.50 Per hour for electrician Cain said these rates are abou a 60-percent increase over th~ past year and about double th( rates of two years ago.
