Dec. 17, 1815

“Governmental Decree” issued by the Austrian Government [Present-day Austria]: “[…] Those employees/servants in the service of the Viennese Israelis must absolutely be paid in such a manner that they can make a living (can survive)[…].” [Researcher’s note: According to the source of the Decree,All objections against this ordinance brought forth by the representatives of the Jewry […] were rejected and a decree was issued on June 22, 1819, that ordered the Royal Imperial Chief Police Authority/Directive (“k. k. Polizey-Oberdirection”) to ensure that this law was followed exactly.” This governmental decree was very likely not issued to guarantee these employees a living wage, but to ensure that they did not engage in any additional trade.]
