Sec. 2 . There are persons employed in some occupations in the state of Indiana at wages insufficient to provide adequate maintenance for themselves and their families. Such employment impairs the health, efficiency and well being of the persons so employed and their families, constitutes unfair competition against other employees and their employers, threatens the stability of industry, and requires, in many cases, that income be supplemented by the payment of public moneys for relief or the provision of other public or private assistance. Employment of persons at such insufficient rates of pay threatens the health and well being of the people of the state of Indiana and injures the economy of the state.
Accordingly, it is hereby declared the policy of the state of Indiana that such conditions be eliminated as rapidly as practicable without substantially curtailing opportunities for employment. To this end, the Minimum Wage Law of 1965 is enacted.
