18 - THE LETHBRID&E HERALD - Monday. January 14, 1974 The homemaker By MARILYN C. TATEM District Home Economist Did you by chance receive an electric "sltillet" for Christmas? I refer to it as a skillet rather than frypan, because this appliance can be used in many more ways in addition to frying. If you don't believe me - Read on . . .

A survey by the International Labor Organization (ILO) says people over 40 in industrialized countries often are considered too old for a new job. Manual laborers usually are hit first and hardest. But office workers and executives also are affected." After a long and difficult struggle, some give up" the survey says. "Psychiatric clinics are full of these middle-aged dropouts."

Op�n Thursday and Friday till 9 The ILO says this discrimination against older workers is unjustified. "Tremendous strides made by better health care and better diet have not only lengthened life, but also improved its quality in the riper years," the survey says. "Technological advances have diminished the physical strain of work. All this is creating a new social framework within which man grows older." BLAMES EMPLOYERS ILO statistics shows the world population of those aged 40 and over totals 968 million and is increasing at the rate of 3.8 million a year. Difficulties of the over-40s in finding employment come from various causes. Their education, training and practical experience are the product of another age. Often their tools of trade have become outdated. Employers have false ideas about the adaptability of older workers which breed prejudice against them. In addition, both open and hidden forms of age discrimination exist. Help-wanted advertisements often express a preference for youth. A recent survey says every second opening for managerial and administrative posts advertised in British newspapers stipulated an age limit of 40. Other forms of discrimination against older people include bias in pay, promotion and other terms of employment. In some countries people over 50 make up two-thirds of all those who have been unemployed for more than six months. The unemployment rate for aging women is even higher than for men. The ILO says several countries have taken steps to redress the balance in^ favor of older workers. France has WeeWhimsy fliis Giegoiv Jockins will be Mnt the origtnti an for hit quote.

The Spanish government tries to dissuade employers from discharging workers over 40 years of age, while in Sweden the length of dismissal notice increases after 45. Belgium has introduced financial incentives to eihployers to take on older workers, such as subsidies during the first few months or relief in the payment of social security contributions. In Socialist countries, older workers get security of employment until they are eligible for retirement pensions. The average period between jobs for workers over 45 is at present four times longer than for workers under 20. Two age groups especially vulnerable are persons from 55 to 59, who have to wait an average of from five to 20 weeks to find a new job, and those of 60 to 64, who have to wait more than 25 weeks.

Grading system ignored by most By JUDE CAMPBELL Herald Staff Writer Although all products sold in Leihbridge stores are govem-ment graded, most housewives are oblivious to grading methods and meanings. What a grade-conscious woman might purchase, might well be ignored by the woman in a hurry to buv, or one relying on advertising alone. "People need to be educated when it comes to grading methods," says Marilyn Tatem, District. Home Economist. "Laws exist regarding every different kind of produce, labelling and such. There are standards to be met for most everything on the grocery shelves, and grades affect pricing," she explained. Canned goods, poultry, meats and dairy products are traded according to Canada 'ancy or Grade A, Canada Choice or Grade B; and Canada Commercial or utility; all in descending order of excellence. Grades are determined by a number of criteria, including flavor, texture', flesh distribution, uniformity of surface, shape, color, maturity and lack of injury. While one chicken might be graded A and another utility, the nutritious value received from either is about the same. Similarly, canned or fresh fruits and vegetables lose points in appearance rather than in food value. "Homemakers could practice sensible grade-buying in many instances," says Miss Tatem. "Those who bake a fair amount, should purchase Grade B eggs, for example, instead of the more expensive large, Grade A. Mothers who plan on using poultry in sandwiches, a-la-king recipes and casseroles shouldn't be buying perfectly shaped birds - utility grades would do just as well." New labelling laws are a form of grading for canned goods other than fruits and vegetables as well, she says. Where the consumer once knew little of what Was contained in a can or carton, he now is made aware of his purchase through ingredient lists. The contents of a can of beans, stew, macaroni, and so on, are all listed on the label in terms of which ingredient is the most prevalent,, down to the least of the. can's contents. Thus, one can of stew might list water, additives, vegetables, sauce and beef; while a less well-adVertised or well-known brand niight sell for a lower price and actually contain more beef and less water and vegetables. "At a time when most people consider their food dollfir at a premium, it's important to understand what's available and which product will give you the moat for your money and your health," Miss Tatem says. She added that Canadian consumers are at an advantage because the majority of produce is A-1, with very little below par. "Producers are giving the people what they want for the most part, with leaner meats, larger poultry and just better products. To ensure the best, government inspectors have spot checks in stores and on production lines, as well as all the regulating laws which are constantly changing for the better."
