Last Seen Was on Way to Bite a Dog Decadence is Viewed With Alarm by Patriarchs WASHINGTON April t William Green president of the American federation oC labor de- clared that one worker out of every four in trade and industry was less in February when he appeared today before the senate commerce committee to give his version of the unemployment situation Green who speaks for tho ranks of organized labor indorsed the bills ot Senator Wagner Democrat New York calling for appropriation of more than for a manent federal program to relieve unemployment whenever it occurs The February figures are the most serious of tho three years for which the labor organization has collected statistics Green Huge Loss Estimated In tho building trades -43 per cent were unemployed in February he said Total wage to Industrial workers have dropped per cent since the stock market de- cline and the volume of the railroad workers fell 12 per cent he said We estimate that wage earners were out of work in the month of February and that they lost over in Green continued Since un- employment was nearly as high in January and March as in February those out of work lost well nigh in the first three months of 1930 One billion dollars worth of wealth created by our wage earners and spent for the products and ices of our industries in three months would undoubtedly be more than sufficient to turn the of business from recession to advance Tho unemployment figures of the federation show that among our membership during the past 27 months unemployment did not fall below 9 per cent for all trades and rose as high as 22 per cent This is indeed a grave problem Since October unemployment has increased from 11 to 22 per cent due to a business depression Trade and industry depend very largely on wage earners for tomers When this income is cut down the effect on retail trade ia immediate Green attributed the trend to many obvious causes Including the increasing uso of machinery to re- place men and the mortgaging of wages by installment buying Submits Program A program was submitted by the labor leader most of it embodied in the Wagner bills The program included the following 1 Establishment of a federal agency to closo track of em- ployment conditions and tion tor an unemployment census 2 Creation in industry of systems to regularize em- ployment on a busts similar to the recent contract between the moro and Ohio railroad and its shopmen Organization of a federal em- ployment service to help the ployed lind jobs 4 Vocational training for workers displaced from their trade by installation of chines d A long range program of lic works construction to take up slack employment in dull seasons Labor is fully persuaded ployment can bo eliminated as a cial and economic
