Abstract

On July 1, 1970, garnishment of employees' wages, which always has been the concern of state law, became subject to federal restrictions. This is a large undertaking since between 30,000 and 120,000 people are fired from their jobs each year because their wages are garnisheed. The Secretary of Labor, acting through the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor, will have his hands full.
