Three major resolutions were adopted by the National Conference of Jewish Communal Service (NCJCS). The first issues a call to the United States government to take responsibility for a "united, comprehensive Federal approach" to the alleviating the "urban crisis." This approach includes a $2.00 minimum wage [the minimum wage had been raised in February, 1969 from $1.00 to $1.30], guaranteed work for every able-bodied American, and a "Federal contributory health insurance program."
