Brake on liberalism in the labor market

La Commune de Paris. Saturday, May 13. The Commune de Paris decrees that it will include in the specifications, for all supplies to be made to the municipal administration, minimum payments per day of the workers employed. This is a first step towards the introduction of a minimum wage in order to put a brake on liberalism in the labor market so that it is only the advancement of techniques that is the only real factor in the fall of product prices and not the fall of wages, as Léo Frankel, the "minister of labor" of the Commune de Paris puts it.

The National Guard of the Commune today had to abandon the fort of Vanves and retreated through the underground tunnels towards Montrouge and Malakoff.
