SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. 201 et seq., §§ 5, 6(a)(3) and 8 provide that covered, non-exempt employees in America Samoa may be paid at minimum wage rates established by a Special Industry Committee, in lieu of the general federal minimum wage specified in § 6(a)(1) of the Act. The FLSA requires the Committee to recommend to the Secretary of Labor the highest minimum wage rate—not to exceed the rate required under FLSA § 6(a)(1)—that it determines, having due regard to economic and competitive conditions, will not substantially curtail employment in the industry and will not give any industry in America Samoa a competitive advantage over any industry in the U.S. outside of America Samoa. The Committee must consider competitive conditions as affected by transportation, living and production costs; the wages established by collective bargaining agreements in various industries; and wages paid by employers who voluntarily maintain minimum wage standards. FLSA § 5(d) requires the Secretary of Labor to provide data on the matters the Committee will consider. Regulations 29 PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 CFR 511.6 and 511.11 require the Administrator of the Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of DOL prepare for the Committee an economic report containing data pertinent to establishing industry minimum wage rates in America Samoa. WHD uses Form WH– 1, Economic Survey Schedule, to gather the information necessary to prepare the economic report. This information collection is currently approved for use through August 31, 2006. II. Review Focus The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments which: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.

     Enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the
