Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TuMday, October THE LETHBRiOQE HERALD 17 More women returning to the labor force Part-time workers ignored by industry TORONTO (CP) A gov- ernment report has said that 24.9 per cent of the female la- bor force in Canada works part time, yet part-time, yet part time, yet part time workers as a group have been virtually ignored by industry. While many women work at part-time jobs purely for fi- nancial reasons, others want to avoid wasting their educa- tion, keep up their job skills and spend time with their .children. "In many cases women have business, technical or social science skills directly related to the needs of busi- ness or the social said Kathie Graham, a man- agement consultant and part- time worker herself. "But they are prevented from us- ing them while they raise a family. "In recent years these women have shown an in- creasing tendency to return to the labor force after their 'stop out' for child-rearing. Their return may require skill retraining and personal read- justment which would be un- necessary if they had contin- ued working part time." She was recently involved in a six-month study that was used as background for a rec- ommendation by the royal commission on the status of women that the "federal gov- ernment undertake a study of the feasibility of making greater use of part-time work in the Canadian economy." "Government has to start talking this thing she said. "Since government has. not proved the benefits of us- ing part-time employees, it is Club cornier notes j.

Dear Ann Landers: In my opinion the advice you gave "Numb" (the mother who, walked in on her 17-year-old daughter and her boyfriend and caught them in the act) was the most sound and prac- tical answer I've ever read in your column. (I'm 17 and have been an Ann Landers fan for five You advised that mother, to see to it that her daughter had an appointment with a doctor to discuss which birth control method would be best for her. You went on and warned the mother against forbidding the girl from seeing the boy. You said it would create worse problems. You then made an astute comment: "A teenage girl who has experienced sex- ual intercourse is not about to stop just because her mother or Ann Landers tells her to." Your conclusion, that the 'important thing was to make sure the girl didn't get pregnant, was practical and realistic. I'm sure many mothers who read that column were upset by-your answer, but I can tell you, Ann Landers, that every girl in our class was applauding you. Not all high school girls are sleeping with their boyfriends, and you made it clear you weren't in any sense of the word condoning it But for those who are, there is no way they can get their virginity THRU SAT. 10% OFF all new Fall Fabrics PriiM Dortli bits.

Although I speak for thousands, sign me A Senior At Central High Dear Senior: Thank you for that nice letter. I received an unexpected number of bou- quets from teenagers, both boys and girls, and surprising- ly few stink weeds from parents. The long-discussed generation gap is beginning to close. Dear- Ann Landers: You've spoken out in behalf of super- market check-out girls, telephone operators and post office clerks, all in the last few months. Will you please say a word to tue brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, parents and in-laws of women who are married to physicians in training? This letter is written by four wives who need help. We average five calls per week from relatives who would like "the doctor" to please drop in to Room 210 and see how Mrs. Neighbor's Cousin is getting along. What the family doesn't realize is that the physician- in-training is so busy with bis own sick patients that in order to make "social" calls he has to give up his meal time or miss a lecture. When our husbands are "on call" we don't see them for 48 hours at a stretch.. They work hard, and the hours are grueling. You wouldn't believe how many relatives have them paged at the hospital to make special re- quests, which include, of course, what to do about the baby's cough or a sister-in- law's hangnail. Thanks for your help, Ann. Btffalo. New York Dear Baff: Here's the letter. Now why don't you wives who have the problem make copies of this column and send them to the people who ought to see it?

A good atten- dance is requested. not surprising that the busi- ness community has largely ignored government state- ments on the subject. "With the exception of the retail trade, where use of part-time employees has be- come a way of life, there has been little evidence that man- agers have seen benefits in us- ing part-time employees for permanent jobs." Three North York women- Penny Goldrick, Julie Holt and Jean among nine women working, all on a part-time basis, on a Canada Manpower-sponsored Out- reach project known as Times Change, developing an em- ployment service for women interested in working less than 35 hours a week. The pro- ject is the first of its kind in Canada. Mrs. Brooks, who worked for a bank before the birth of her first child, is a part-time sociology student at York Uni- versity. Mrs. Goldrick, a former so- cial worker and teacher, taught two days a week for two years in an English high school. "England is so much more set up for she said. "The hours are flexible and all children stay at school for a hot lunch." Finding a part-time job which matches your quali- fications is usually the biggest problem women face. If you're a secretary nurse or have experience in banking or selling there are part-time job opportunities listed in the want-ad section of most newspapers. But in more specialized fields, it's not that simple. While a company might not have an official policy on hir- ing part-time employees, of- ten they will consider some- one who has worked for them full time.
