There were jobless then, compared with last month's and a total labor force of of the reported hi the latent official report. Avera'ge hourly earnings in 1963 for workers were (1.95 and the average work-week was just over 40% noun. Figures released here for last December showed that the average hourly rate for employ- ees in manufacturing was and the average work-week just over hours. While average wages now are 56 per cent higher than they were in 1963, the consumer price index had climbed 28 per cent by December. The maximum rate of unem- ployment insurance benefit in 1963 was a week for jobless dependents. Starting last month, the maxi- mum rates were raised to M6.W and a week, respectively. In the meantime, agricultural workers have been made eligi- ble for contributions and fits. If the Canadian dollar bought worth of goods in 1963, it bought only 78 cents worth of consumer goods to December. Perhaps another penny hai been shaved off it since then. Since 1963, the federal govern.' ment has embarked on a num- ber of programs to raise the capabilities of the labor and overcome Its Immobility. Grants have been available since 1965 for displaced workers seeking jobs in another part of the country, and, since 1967, for workers taking job retraining courses. The federal govern- ment now subsidizes the prov- inces for the full amount of the latter. ATTENTION WESTERN SAVINGS AND LOAN CLIENTS For Information Regarding Your Holding!
