Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 THE LETHBRIDOC HERALD Oetobtr 9, 1974 New Zealand city boasts 100 per cent employment AUCKLAND (CP) A year ago Auckland, New Zealand's largest city (population made the startling announcement that it had not a single person unemployed. Now with unemployment to- tals mounting round the world and forecasts of more serious recession, Auckland has pro- claimed that it still has no one out of work, and not one person has been registered as unemployed for a full year. Nearly 30 per cent of New Zealand's work force lives in the Auckland district. The labor department's employ- ment service receives a small flow of inquiries from people wanting jobs, but throughout the past year it has been able to place every one of them. The situation is in fact not much different throughout New Zealand as a whole. Total registered unemployed for the whole country from a work force of about 1.1 million was at the end of July. At the end of August the total had fallen further to Ever since the Depression much of New Zealand Off-campus enrolment up Response to University of Lethbridge off campus courses offered this fall has been excellent, according to Dr. Roger Meintzer, co ordinator of Continuing Education. This year the University is offering 15 courses in 10 southern Alberta centres compared with 12 courses in the fall of 1973. Over 200 students are registered in classes this fall. Enrol- ment in all courses is good, says Dr. Meintzer, indicating "the University is being successful in extending services beyond the immediate Lethbridge area." Off campus registration at the end of the fall term last year was 190. economic policy has been angled at preventing un- employment developing again on any significant scale. Economic growth rates in New Zealand have not been high, but in preventing unem- ployment New Zealand can claim to have been one of the most successful countries in the world. There has in fact been no significant unemployment ever since the Second World War and the highest figure reached has been only a frac- tion of the normal levels in most countries. The extraordinary situation prevailing in Auckland, in fact, arises from a severe labor shortage, with'far more jobs offering than there are people to fill them. Mostly the only registered unemployed are people who arc; virtually unemployable, but in present circumstances even the un- employables are hired. Some pessimistic prophets believe New Zjealand, like other countries, faces serious economic difficulties and that some rise in unemployment is inevitable, perhaps before the end of the present year. Yet employment offices in Auckland see no sign yet of any reluctance by employers to hire any staff they can lay hands on. Chief employment officer B.T. Creasey says his office can place anyone who walks through the door and find a job the same day. "Certainly there is a lot of talk about jobs becoming harder to get in the next few he said, "but at pre- sent there are so many jobs going. "Figures from Australia show unemployment there ris- ing and we normally expect what happens there to occur here But job vacancies are steady. Our contract with companies indicates that there still is plenty of work." SELF-REPRODUCTION Some plants produce new plants from their own leaves. Plywood mill closes down SEATTLE (AP) The U.S. Plywood Corp. has closed its Seattle mill and laid off 350 workers because of what it said was a lack of orders.- It is the first time since 1945 that the mill, located in the Ballard area, has been shut down completely, said plant manager Bob Quinn. The plant has an annual payroll of about million. About 50 per cent of the plant's production is birch- faced plywood, which is used in kitchen cabinets and other products relating to housing. Quinn made no estimate of how long the plant would be closed No deaths in Antigua earthquake ST. JOHN'S, Antigua (AP) Officials here and on nearby islands confirmed Wednesday no known loss of life in the earthquake which hit the eastern Caribbean Tuesday. The quake caused consider- able damage to historic churches, other public buildings and homes on An- tigua and the island of St. Kitts. Antigua declared a public holiday so residents would have a chance to assess the damage and make emergency repairs. No over-all estimates of damage were available, but Antigua officials said it would run into several million dollars.
