Nra to Distribute Kosher Code Signs

Distribution of posters bearing the NRA code provisions governing the kosher meat trade—the only such posters printed in Yiddish— will begin tomorrow from the offices of the Retail Kosher Meat Trade Code Authority in New York, according to an announcement by Walter M. Duvall, chief of the insignia division of NRA.

The provisions, which kosher butchers and poultry dealers throughout the country are required to post in conspicuous places in their establishments, guarantee employes a minimum wage of $20 or $25 depending on the locality, and a maximum 48-hour work week and 8-hour day except before certain holidays when 56 hours are permitted with overtime payment at one and a third.
