Larry Stanislav Spencer and Mar lyn Mossman Spirit Lake in vestigated the accident New blow to racial bias ahead By JOSEPH R SLEVIN New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON The United States is heading into a man power crisis and only the elim ination of job discrimination can solve it Many employers now discrim inate against Negroes women and older workers when they have jobs to fill All the evidence is that they will have to discarc those prejudices in the future or do without needed workers The explanation is startingly simple The technological revolution i creating a tremendous demand for professional technical and othervhighly trained workers A Labor Department study of pop ulatibn trends has revealed that there soon will not be enough white male workers in the prime age groups to satisfy the de mand THE DEPARTMENT predicts that the number of workers un d e r 25 will increase 6400000 during the next 10 years while the number of older workers over 45 will rise 5500000 But it says that a sharp drop in the birth rate during the de pression of the 1930s is about to yield to acute shortage of ma ture workers in the prime age groups between 25 and 45 The number of workers from 25 to 34 will increase 1750000 during this decade but the num ber from 34 to 45 actually will decline 200000 This will compel employers to abandon past discriminatory hiring practices Secretary of Labor James P Mitchell said recently The Labor Department fore casts that by 1970 the country will need an additional 3300000 professional and technical work ers 1900000 proprietors and managers 3900000 clerical and sales workers and 2200000 skilled workers THE YOUNGSTERS under 25 will be able to fill some of the openings but employers will be able to get all of the people they need only by opening their doors to the Negroes women and older workers they now discrim inate against Older workers find it hard to get new jobs when they are laid off They remain out of work much longer than younger men and women because employers have arbitrary rules against hir ing people over 45 Unemployment among would be Negro workers customarily is much higher than it is among whites and Negroes have a much smaller proportion of the choice jobs The United States wastes its Negro manpower resources ONLY 44 PER CENT of the Negroes have professional and technical positions but 116 per cent of the white workers have these better jobs A meager 23 per cent of the Negroes are proprietors and managers while 115 per cent of the whites hold these executive posts Similarly 74 per cent of the Negroes are clerical and sales workers against 225 per cent of the whites The Negroes have relatively few skilled jobs Only 58 per cent of the Negroes are skilled workers but 139 per cent of the whites arc classed as skilled The bulk of the Negro workers still arc limited to semiskilled unskilled and service trade em ployment The Labor Depart ment finds that 672 per cent of all Negro workers are in these less desirable jobs PROPER PLACE TRENTON N J MA bill affecting county maternity hos pitals has been referred to the state senates Labor Committee MAKES A POINTUN am bassador Henry Cabot
