The labor shortage, caused by the fact that there are not enough white workers to fill the jobs reserved for them, is being felt in almost every branch of commerce and industry. Opponents of the country's color-bar labor laws say that the practice Is stultifying Indus- try and holding back the im- mense potential of a country that is the economic giant of Africa. However, reservation of cer- tain jobs for white workers is a key aspect of the government's policy of race segregation, by which 3.7 million whites rule nearly 16 million non-whites. Whether the government will yield to pressure to relax laws so basic to its apartheid ideol- ogy, which aims ultimately to rid "white" areas of non-whiles, is as yet unclear. But there are signs that the government is turning a blind eye to unofficial breaches of the labor laws and more and more non-whites are quietly moving into jobs from which they legally banned. Sectors that are hardest hit by the shortage are the building industry, printing, transporta- tion and mining, as well as many stores, offices and facto- ries. The object of the job reserva- tion policy is to make sure that an African, colored (mixed race) or Asian person will not get a job if there is a white man who wants it. Thus unskilled whites are protected from being ousted by cheaper non-white labor. Jobs reserved for whites in- clude those where any authority is vested over other whites. This prevents Africans ever being in a position to give orders to whites, no mutter how unskilled the white workers are. The policy also seeks to pre- vent whites being served in a store by an African, or having their drinks poured by an Afri- can, or being booked into i hotel by an African. In practice, these jobs ready being done in psny places by Africans; overnight reception tele- phone switchboard work to ho- tels. Many white employers ssy they could not operate without Africans.
