1. Maintenance employees of a typical metropolitan office building, operated as an independent enterprise, which is used and to be used for offices by every variety of tenants, including some producers of goods for commerce, held not to have such a close and immediate tie with the process of production as to be deemed engaged in an "occupation necessary to the production" of goods for commerce, within the meaning of § 3(j) of the Fair Labor Standards Act, and therefore not covered by the Act. P. 325 U. S. 583.
