Wisconsin s Nat onal rank of 10th industrially Ren atoned unchanged. The increase of ill found in the number of in plants is especially note to thy in View of the fact that fac declined steadily in num Ber from 1920 to 1927. Although the increase of 381 in number of wage earners is slight t Marks the termination of the downward trend in Industrial employment which started to 1920, ind pre sents a Strong argument against decreasing employment wild to be due to the installation of labor saving machinery in factories. Factory wages increased 094, or about 5 per cent Between 1925 and 1927. In lev of the comparatively Small increase in number of workers the increase in wages plainly indicates that the rate of pay per worker was improved.

In addition to the last i toned 35 industries it is to be Exi acted that most of those in do led in the All other industries arc up also fall below one million do Lars in value of products.

Pour of the Twenty leading in it Stree in Wisconsin fall into the Wood working group which Empi is workers and totals in production. Of u Ese four industries two Are still f owing the other two have Pasa Taw Peak and Are declining i e to the diminished Supply of n w materials locally.

Tonal rank of 7th in 1923. P Anong Mill products reached their i est with a state rank of 9th in 1 90, but rank 15th today. Fur n Ture and refrigerator Man fac to ring was in 13th place in 1880 a to has since experienced a fairly steady growth to 9th position. Piper and Wood pulp has shown a much More rapid growth How e is from. 18th in 1880 to 4th to d to ranking at the top of wis c sin s woodworking family with a production of and with workers employed t Imber and Timber products Fol with production.

Who own the manufacturing establishments in sin who share the profit if there la a profit Tae obvious answer is the stockholders. How tiny wis Consin residents an Industrial stockholders for the put generation professional poll clans by inference and innuendo have striven to establish Belr Stock answer of the few in minds of the people the professional politicians sing out Success Ful industries term Tiem big business and slander men who have been instrumental n making their respective industries Success Ful and prosperous. The sane thinker admits that growth is essential to continued Success in any business but the professional politician chronically flows with alarm the growth and Success of manufacturing pro vide increasing employment and a growing Market at Home. There is no More foundation for the demagogue s alarmist View of wis Consin s Industrial growth than there is truth to Bis Asai ration that our successful industries Are big business owned by the fortunate few. Here Are the facts a recent Survey now partially completed shows that 423 Wisconsin factories Are owned by stockholders. Of this number or an aver age of 151 per reporting factory Are residents of the Backer state. It la Safe to assume thai the num Ber of resident stockholders la Wisconsin s Industrial establishments runs Well up into the hundreds of thousands for to this number would be inched those who have invested in our 169 can Nung factories.

In the face of these facts is it reasonable to believe that our factories Are big business owned by the fortunate la it reasonable to believe that this fictitious condition creates a men Ace to be viewed Wolti every resident of Wisconsin whether a stockholder or not participates in manner and to some degree in the benefits result ing from Waco non s industries. Every resident of Wisconsin should with Bis own Bent interests at heart insist that our factories be encouraged to grow find expand and flourish.

Leaders As the manufacture of Dairy products motor vehicle manufacturing foundry and machine shop products and the paper and Wood pulp Industry the smaller suffer by con Trast Aad Are dwarfed to relative importance. It is Only when the numerous Small industries Are studied As a group when their combined value of products Are summed up Aad when the total number of earners employed in disclosed that the True Worth of these highly diversified Small children of Wisconsin s Industrial family comes to Light. Though ten Industry Ltd to the state account for of the in value of manufactured products or slightly More than one half of the state s output the remaining industries outrank the ten leaders not Only in number of establish ments but to number of employees and in total payroll. Of the 247. 341 industrially employed in Wisconsin Are employed by the Small industries and the plants to the Small industries group pay rat in wages or 54 per cent of the annual payroll. Several of these Small industries which play no Small part to the welfare of wis Consin will be discussed to subsequent articles. A Early discus Sion Deal with the manufacture t Toyi Aad children s vehicles an Industry which out Worth of annually and pays to wages. How Many readers know Wisconsin s rank in this Branch of manufacture the Large number and great variety which becomes evident when Wisconsin s smaller industries Are enumerated indicates that Diversi fied May be applied to manufacturing just As it May be applied to farming in the Badger state. In addition to our the largest manufacturing industries the census of manufactures lists 115 other industries that run the Range of the alphabet. From agricultural implements to worsted goods. Agricultural implements Are manufactured to 21 which employ workers and pay out 157 to wages. With in value of products Wisconsin ranks third in the nation and known throughout the world As a source of farm machinery. Slaughtering and meat packing is one of Wisconsin s most important farm linked industries which might realty be termed As a marketing Agency since it converts e farm raised raw material Here at Home into a finished product read for distribution and consumption Over a wide territory. This Industry is so closely Allied with agriculture that it difficult to say whether it properly under the general heading of Agri culture or Industry among the state s producers. Meat packing ranks fifth among the of the state and gives wis consult a National rank of twelfth. The 18 packing plants employ workers and pay out it wages annually. Much More 1m portent however the fact that of which represents the value of products for one year paid Back directly to the farm for livestock old on the Hoof for Slaughter. This leave i representing the value added by manufacture of which nearly one half is paid out a wages. When wages Are deducted Only remains to a taxes insurance interest and depreciation Selling costs and finally a profit with the single exception of butter cheese Anil condensed milk Industry no other Industry returns More Money directly to Badger state Farmers of its raw materials than the Slaught ering and meat packing Industry. The nearest approach is made by the paper and pulp Industry Wulc i serves As a Home Market for Pul Wood sold As a by product off Cut Over land farms. Wisconsin farm ers Are especially favored in ing a Short Railroad haul froth feedlot or pasture to the packing centers of the state.
