Friday, April 6, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Education lack job stopper OTTAWA (CP) Lack of education is one of the biggest factors in unemployment, Sta- tistics Canada figures indicate. A recent study of education and the labor force says unem- ployment rates vary from 10.2 per cent for persons with only Grade 8 or less to 6.5 per cent for high school graduates and 3.9 per cent for persons with some post-secondary education. The statistics include all civil- ians over 14 who are not going to school, retired, keeping house full-time, or disabled. The study is based on an April, 1972, sur- vey. The study says persons with little education not only are more likly to be unemployed, but they also are more likely to be unemployed for longer peri- ods. It notes that education levels are increasing, but the figures The Baha'i Community of Lethbridge presents THE FRANK SLIDE IN CONCERT and the film "HIS NAME SHALL BE ONE" Sunday, April 8 8 p.m. St. Francis Gym Catholic Central High School NO CHARGE "REAL TREASURE'1 CAN BE YOURS with Whit.'.

Of the 25 to 34 age group, 51.2 per cent had not completed high school For older groups, the percentage increases, up to 81.3 per cent for persons 65 and over. Education levels and unem- ployment also vary by region, the study says. British Columbia had the highest proportion of the popu- lation with high school diplo- mas, 44.3 per cent. The per- centage of persons who com- pleted high school was 28.9 per cent in the Atlantic Provinces, 34.8 per cent in Ontario, 35.3 per cent in Quebec and 36.1 per cent in the Prairies. The study also said regional differences in unemployment were less in the higher-educa- tion groups than in the com- paratively-uneducated cate- gories. "For persons with a Grade S education or less, unemploy- ment rates range from a high of 17.3 per cent in the Atlantic region to a low of 5.5 per cent in the Prairie region. "For persons with some high- school education, the variation in regional rates is less, rang- ing from a high of 9.4 per cent in the Atlantic region to a low of 4.6 in Ontario. "At the post-secondary, educa- tional level the range of vari- ation is once again considerably a high of 5.4 per cent in the Atlantic region to a low of 3.2 in Ontario." On duration of unemploy- ment, the study says 26.1 per cent of persons unemployed less than one month have a Grade 8 education or less, while 41.7 per cent of those unemployed more than four months are in that category.

"I would not be telling the truth if I said I thought it shouldn't be under the minister of he said in reply to questions by Leonel Beaudoin in the Com- mons agriculture committee. Mr. Whelan prefaced his statement by saying he bad complete confidence in the ca- pabilities of Mr. Lang, minister of justice with responsibility for the wheat board. But there would be "less du- plication and time consumed" if the portfolio was put under the agriculture minister. Mr. Wielan took over the ag- riculture department last No- vember after 10 years as a backbench MP. During the Trudeau govern- ment years of 1968-72, he was critical of a number of govern- ment farm programs, particu- larly one called L.I.F.T., for Lower Inventories for Tomor- row. That one was implemented in 1969-70 by Mr. Lang as an effort to cut a billion-bushel wheat surplus by reducing the number of acres planted to wheat. Since then world droughts have created serious grain shortages and Canada's grain stocks have dropped considera- bly. This year, Mr. Lang has said farmers should plant as many as 28 million acres of wheat. Under L.I.F.T., wheat acreate was cut to about 12 mil- lion. The wheat board, federal marketing agency for wheat, barley and oats, has been under the agriculture department's ju- risdiction from time to time in the past. But Mr. Lang has retained re- sponsibility for the board during the five years in government. He also has held the manpower and immigration portfolio. The only Liberal MP from Saskatchewan, he has said the wheat board portfolio is politi- cally important to him because of the importance of grain in the prairie economy. Mr. Whelan is a farmer from western Ontario.
