Upon application to the Administrator of the Wage and Hour Division, on forms furnished by the Division, special certificates authorizing the employment, at subminimum wage rates, of learners in the independent telephone industry may be issued to exchanges of less than 2000 stations to the extent necessary to prevent curtailment of opportunities for employment, and to exchanges of 2000 or more stations when unusual circumstances are shown to exist which the Administrator or his authorized repre

sentative find would curtail opportunities for employment, under terms herein set forth, when it appears that:

(1) Experienced operators are not available in the locality from which the employer customarily draws his labor supply;

(2) The issue of a certificate will not tend to impair working or wage standards established for experienced operators in the industry; and

(3) The issue of such certificates will not create unfair competitive labor cost advantages.

$ 522.083 Number of learners. (a) Special certificates issued to meet normal labor turnover may authorize not more than:

One learner in exchanges employing up to 8 operators, or

Two learners in exchanges employing 9-18 operators, or

Three learners in exchanges employing 19-30 operators, or

Four learners in exchanges employing 31-44 operators.

In exchanges employing 45 or more operators, learners in addition to 4 may be employed at less than the minimum rate in the ratio of one learner for each additional 15 operators employed in the exchange.

(b) Special certificates issued to new or expanding exchanges may authorize the employment of the number of learners required to meet the employer's actual need in such exchanges.

(c) Special certificates issued to meet abnormal labor turnover resulting from the war emergency may authorize the employment of learners to the extent of the actual need of an individual applicant.

$ 522.084 Learning period. The maximum learning period which may be provided under a special certificate issued in this industry shall not extend beyond the first 480 hours of employment in training for and in switchboard operating.

$ 522.085 Learner hourly rates. The minimum hourly rate to be provided in a special certificate for learners shall be not less than 30 cents per hour for the first 320 hours and 35 cents per hour for the second 160 hours of the learning period.

§ 522.086 Duration of certificates. Special certificates authorizing the employment of learners in accordance with paragraph (a) and (c) of $ 522.083, may be issued for a period not longer than
