Mr. POWER:

Basic pay of wireless

mechanics is not raised to $1.50 per day after six months, nor on completion of their course. Throughout their course, covering 18 weeks at a war emergency training programme school and 28 weeks at wireless school, wireless mechanics are classified as A.C. 2, and are paid $1.30 per day. On successful completion of the course, they automatically receive "C" grouping, for which they are paid an extra 25 cents per day "trades pay". On posting to their first unit.after graduation, they are normally reclassified as A.C. 1, and receive an additional 10 cents per day basic pay, bringing basic pay to $1.40 per day and total pay to $1.65 per day.
