The theme is social revolution By LARRY BENNETT Herald Staff Writer A recent poll conducted by Hie Herald indicated persons jiow out of work have little chance of getting a job until spring. The poll also showed secre- aries and waitresses to be ardest hit by unemployment, ollovred closely by truckers, and radio and TV repairmen. Oilier occupations experiencing unemployment are auto mech- anics, sales and nursing. Representatives of the Can- ada Manpower centre at Lett- bridge have said tiere are more people employed in the city now than ever before but do not have statistics specifically for the city. Manpower statistics are not compiled for Lethbridge separately. Information covers all soutliern between the Saskatchewan anO B.C. bor- ders. The unofficial estimate of un- employment for Lethbridge ii December was 3.8 per cent ol the working force. Ite national average is about six per cent. A representative of one of the local labor unions reported his group had 20 per cent unem- ployment. He noted, however that some of the unemployed were not working by choice avoiding the cold weather. A representative of the Can a Manpower centre said oany Albertans have accepted, Bd seem to plan for the em- oyment shortage in the Win- er months. They realize that tere will not be a lot of work Tax payments Prepaid tax payments at city hall continue to remain aheac of last year's figures.

"People can always listen t a weather report and find out the weekend will be nice fo jicnicing, but the farmer can not always find if the weather will be suitable for harvestin or crop spraying." Dr. MacKay said accurat forecasting would also be use- :ul in reducing or controllin pollution related to m teorological conditions. I cited crop spraying on wind days as an example. The Canada .Committee o Agricultural Meteorology is n a pressure group according Dr. MacKay, but rather group formed to assess tl present state of affairs an make logical recommendation to proper authorities.

One union olfkiil reported at electricians were being ought in from Calgary be- use there were not enough to handle all the available jobs in Mayor Andy Anderson said be was vary optimistic the unemployment situa- on in Lethbridge. He predict- the situation would remain .able as long as the current construction boom continued, tiere is usually an increase in unemployment in the winter, be aid, and did not foresee any ajor change in the local situa- on. The Unemployment Insurance ommission office in Leth- idge, like the Canada Man- lower centre, has no exact sta- istics for the immediate city irea. An official of the local of- ce reported the Lethbridge situation is consid- a-ed good, and the registration r unemployment benefits is own from last year. Exact fig- ires were unavailable. One result of the unemploy- lent situation, according to the Canada Manpower centre, is people have stopped jumping rom job to job. Keeping a job and establishing seniority seems to h a v e become more important than higher pay. In an attempt to help unem- loyed people get jobs the Can- ida Manpower centres across anada sponsor training pro- grams. The aim of the trainkg pro- grams is not to take people off ie labor market, but give the unemployed training in a skill where there are some job open- ings. An official of the loca manpower office reported the irogram, in nearly every case vas successful. 'Damn Anyone over 50 can't get a job anyway. iVilUam Birch, 1609 19th Ave N., Lethbridge.
