Hired hands get more money than farmers OTTAWA (CP) Hired hands paid more than farmers themselves? With bigger cars and newer houses than their employers? Lyle Minogue, director of the Saskatchewan agriculture department's planning and re- search service, suggested these and other steps Monday as possible solutions to the current farm labor shortage. Addressing a two-day Cana- dian .Federation of Agriculture conference on farm labor, Mr. Minogue said farmers tend to base the wages they pay on the amount they make themselves. But farmers, unlike hired help, have the security of own- ing land, a comfortable place in the community and the assurance of being able to sell out and live well in their old age. Mr. Minogue agreed that a system that would allow an employee to "drive a '71 Oldsmobile and live in a house while the farmer drove a '63 Chev and lived in a house" would take some getting used to. But farmers might well con- sider giving hands a higher disposable income than their own if they seriously wanted to overcome labor problems. SUGGESTS SEARING Farmers also might consider methods of allowing permanent employees chances to snare farm profits and build up side enterprises. Workers who had a stake in a farnf operation would be more likely to put down roots. Elizabeth Pederson of Standard, Alta., said farmers are always scraping the bottom of the barrel for hired hands. A good man might be found to operate expensive equipment, but "then along comes the weekend and he's off on a binge and it takes to the middle of next week before he's in gear again." Like other delegates, Mrs. Peterson agreed that farm workers must be given the benefits available to employees in other jobs. They should be entitled to a 40-hour week, overtime and vacations with pay. But farmers needed higher returns for their products if Montanan falls feet to death BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP> Authorities say a 22-year-old Belgrade. Mont., man died when he fell more than feet with a malfunctioning parachute The incident took place north of the Bozeman airport The Gallatin County coroner, Rob Myers, said Scot McLean apparently stepped from a light plane with four other skydivers when his parachute failed to open properly they in turn were to pay higher wages and offer benefits. VICTORIA to use greatly-increased resource revenues to finance a burgeoning list of social services were outlined in the legislature Monday by Premier Dave Barrett as he brought down the province's first billion budget. "It's a Robin Hood budget, but we didn't have to rob the he said at a pre-budget briefing. It promised no personal or corporate income tax increases and said that a forecast 26.5-per-cent increase in government revenues, mainly from British Columbia's booming resource economy, will pay for record government spending. In a 30-page booklet filled with figures and color photos of the province, the premier termed it a "resource dividend with the payoff going to the elderly and the working man. "They worked hard to make this province what it is today it is time to bring the dividends back to the ordinary citizens of B.C., the loggers, fishermen and farmers, the wage and salary earners in all walks of he said. "We have made clear to industry that super profits, special tax concessions or blatant exploitation of natural resources will no longer be tolerated. Business must also demonstrate more responsiveness to changing social and environmental values." HELP FOR HOUSING A highlight of the budget is a three-part ?100-million assault on the housing shortage 550 million to buy and service land, million for first and second mortgages and renovation loans and million to build senior citizens' housing units He gave to apartment dwellers and others in rented accommodation who are under 65 years of age a annual renter's grant. The existing elderly renter's allowance of a year for those over 65 was increased to a year There was no increase in the homeowner's grant of a year, but the government made a start on its promised five-year plan to remove school taxes from residential property. More aid for the aged came in a monthly increase in "Mincome" payments to This guaranteed minimum income, provided by the government to all residents over 60 and the handicapped, consists of a supplement on regular pensions to bring them up to the established figure. Highlights: No increases in personal tax rates. Gross direct and contingent liability debt estimated at No increase in homeowner's grant of but a special grant between and annually to homeowners toward reduction of school taxes on residential property.
