Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, September 1, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAIP _ 9 TORONTO (CP) A narrow- ing of the traditional wage gap between Canada and the United States is a "serious develop- ment" for Canadian manufac- turers who face additional built- ing costs, the president of the j Canadian Manufacturers' Asso-' ciation said today. Speaking at a Canadian Na- tional Exhibition directors' luncheon, Keith Rapsey said the j wage gap has virtually dis- appeared. Canadian manufacturing wages, he said, have increased faster than those in the U.S. ev- ery year since 1953. Average Canadian hourly earnings which were 27 per cent less than those of the U.S. 10 years ago now were only seven per cent be- hind. He expected the remain- ing differential to be completely removed in a year or two. "This differential is needed to help compensate for higher dis- tribution overheads that are built into Canadian costs be- cause of our relatively sparse domestic market. "It is a dangerous notion that i H. H. Smith Ltd. Customs Broker LLOYD FARRELL Lethbridga Real Estate Board "o-op Salesman of-the-month for Last year Lloyd "Got his Man" :or the R.C.M.P.

LIMIT OX INCREASE Mr. Rapsey, president of Al- len-Bradley Canada Ltd. of Cambridge, Ont., said produc- tivity can increase only about three per cent a year. "Wage increases greater than productivity increases can only be attained by way of higher prices. A continuation of eight-, 10-, or 12-per-cent wage de- mands now will only increase the inflationary pressures we i have been experiencing from in- j ternational commoditv mar-1 kets." j Mr. Rapsey said the recent j federal tax cuts for corpo-1 rations were "sensible and use-! ful" but not any "great bo-; nanza" for manufacturers. Re- j turn on capital in the' industry j was still low. "There is. of course, an ever- present danger that the effect of the lower tax burden will be nullified by worsening inflation. Rapidly rising prices have an adverse effect on manufac- turers as much as on any other group in the economy, since they are vulnerable to foreign competition in both domestic and export markets." Seeks national role The Canadian Wine In- stitute is looking at plans to reorganize its opera- tions to better become a national organization, its president J. H. Bearty says. Mr. Beaffy, also president of Chateau Car-tier Wines, believes that the institute has been for some time art Ontario association. He says the institute pians to set up regional units to handle specific regional conditions. project Decision awaited on oil plant EDMONTON (CP> A news conference, apparently to an- nounce whether Syncrude Can- ada Ltd. will go ahead with plans for an extrac- tion plant at the Athabasca oil sands, has been scheduled for Tuesday.

Frank Spragins. president of Syncrude, and Bill Dickie, min- ister of mines and minerals, were unavailable for comment on what the company decided.
