Facts of the case
A New York minimum wage law empowered the state labor commission to fix wages in relation to the class of service rendered. This fixing of wages in relation to value was an attempt to satisfy the Supreme Court's narrow view of minimum wage legislation.
Does the law violate the liberty protected by due process of the Fourteenth Amendment?
