The director may transmit to each wage board all pertinent information in his possession
relative to the wages paid or material to the subject of inquiry of the occupation
in question. Each wage board shall endeavor to determine, if requested so to do by the director,
the standard conditions of employment; the minimum wage, whether by time rate or
piece rate, adequate to maintain in health and to supply with the necessary cost of
living an employee of ordinary ability in the occupation in question, or in any branches
thereof; and suitable minimum wages, graded, so far as practicable, on a rising scale
toward the minimum allowed experienced workers, for learners and apprentices. When a majority of the members of a wage board agree upon standard conditions of
employment or minimum wage board determinations, they shall report such determinations
to the director, together with the reasons therefor and the facts relating thereto. A majority of the members of any such wage board shall constitute a quorum.
