Olsen v. Nebraska

No. 671

Argued April 8, 9, 1941

Decided April 28, 1941

313 U.S. 236


1. A Nebraska statute limiting the amount of the fee which may be charged by private employment agencies to ten percent of the first month's salary or wages of the person for whom employment was obtained held consistent with due process of law. Ribnik v. McBride, 277 U. S. 350, overruled. P. 313 U. S. 243.

2. The wisdom, need, and appropriateness of this legislation are for the State to determine. P. 313 U. S. 246.

138 Neb. 574, 293 N.W. 393, reversed.

Certiorari, 312 U.S. 673, to review a judgment for a peremptory writ of mandamus requiring the Secretary of Labor of the Nebraska to issue licenses for the operation of private employment agencies. The above-named association was the original relator. A number of other employment agencies which sought and obtained the same relief by intervention were also respondents in this court. Mr. Olsen was substituted for his predecessor in office, Mr. Kinney, post, p. 541.
