Employers Rebel at Costs of State's Unemployment Trust Fund By Harrison Weber Howl D«llr PrtM AUMllllMl DES MOINES — Many Iowa employers are rebelling at the costs they must pay to underwrite the state's unemployment trust fund. This rebellion is taking many forms. The most visible sign is the number of protests by employers to unemployment compensation claims. , Last year for every 100 claims received by the Iowa employment security commission, 56 were protested by the employer. In years gone by, the rate was about 25 or 30 protests per 100 claims. U.P.W. Meets In Arcadia Tlmn Hcnld Newi Service ARCADIA - The U.P.W. of the Arcadia Presbyterian Church completed their sewing assignment and boxed it for mailing to Broken Bow, Okla. at their Thursday meeting. The meeting opened with Psalm 51 followed by prayer led by Mrs. Joe Schweers, president. Announcement was made of the spring Presbyterial at Storm Lake April 6. The Manning Presbyterian Church will host the Fall Work Shop on Oct. 4. Easter Theme At Arcadia Women's Club Tlmei HtnM Newt Service ARCADIA — Symbols of the Resurrection and Easter was the feature presented at the Arcadia Federated Women's Club. The club met Monday in the home of the president, Mrs. Wilbur Schroeder. In her talk Mrs. Schroeder showed numerous picture symbols including the kinds of crosses. In February, for example, the commission received 12,800 initital claims. Decisions were rendered on 9,800 of these claims. Over 76 per cent of the claims were protested by employers. One reason for the increase in the number of protests lodged is a law enacted by the Legislature in 1975 concerning the transfer of credits. Let's use an example to illustrate how the law works. A person who works for a large company decides voluntarily to quit his job after a number of years' employment. He takes a job with a neighborhood garage. FUNNY BUSINESS By earning nine times his weekly benefit amount, this person can re-qualify for unemployment compensation. Unemployment benefits range from a low of $10 to a high of $107 per week. If this person had been entitled to a weekly benefit amount of $107 under his first job, he would have to earn $963 to requalify. Once this is done, the employment security commission transfers all of his wage credits and liability to the subsequent employer. This means that if the service station operator would fire the employee, and the individual had requalified. the By Roger Bollen I WOMTMEBD A CART,,, I OKiL.4 NAME 3O DOUARS TO SPEND! <O U7S»( NEA.

Lunch was served by the hostess Mrs. Anna Noelck was a guest. station operator could become liable for $3.000 to $4,000 in charges and the individual would be entitled to $107 per week in unemployment compensation for a minimum of 26 weeks and possibly another 13 weeks in extended benefits. Consequently many employers are protesting unemployment compensation claims because, if possible, they don't want to be saddled with the cost of a person drawing unemployment compensation. Another wrinkle in the state's unemployment compensation act that is Astrology Tuesday April 13,1976 Bernice Bede OSD ARIES (March 21-April 19) This is not the time to bring up an old, unsettled domestic issue that is a source of irritation.

More than any other news medium, the local newspaper is identified with your community and is relied upon by almost every family in your town. If you missed the local news on television or radio last night, this newspaper gives you an in-depth report on what's happening. And, take your time; we wouldn't want you to miss anything. Newspapers deliver the local story. IOWA PRESS ASSOCIATION AN AFFILIATION OF 385 IOWA WEEKLY AND DAILY NEWSPAPERS Times Harold, Carroll, la. Monday, April 12, 1976 « M )U disconcerting to some employers is the so-called 12 week provision. This provides that if extended benefits are in effect — and it appears that they will be until at least 1980 — a person who voluntarily quits and is disqualified can requalify for benefits by making an "earnest and active search 1 ' for employment for 12 consecutive weeks. The federal government pays half of the extended benefits which go into effect during high periods of unemployment. If unemployment averages 4.5 per cent nationally, which it does presently, it triggers the signal for extended benefits. Because of a drain on the unemployment insurance trust fu.nd, the 1975 Legislature imposed a surtax of seven-tenths of one per cent on all employes setting the base salary at $6.000 instead of $4.200. The tax is paid by employers. But with unemployment compensation checks in Iowa totaling $3 million a week, it appears that the fund will go broke next year unless something further is done. There has been talk "around the rotunda" of a bill yet this session to raise an additional $120 million; again, the tax would be paid by employers. Anticipating such an increase, some employers already are lobbying their legislators in opposition to a healthy increase. They say that the state needs to tighten up requirements on who is eligible for unemployment compensation. One way would be to require jobless lowans to visit at least three prospective employers each week in order to be eligible to receive benefits. Such a provision is contained in a bill passed by the Senate earlier this year; but, it is doubtful that this bill will be debated in the House. If it is, many political obervers think the House will delete this provision on suitable employment.

LIBRA (Setp. 23-Oct. 23) Don't get your signals crossed today by-being overly assertive in a situation that calls for diplomacy and tact. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Plan your moves carefully today or you may wind up painting yourself into a corner. Rash actions will cause unnecessary headaches. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Normally you fit very comfortably into group activities but today may be your off day where being in a crowd could bug you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your position with certain associates isn't quite as strong as you may think. Don't do anything today that might alienate them. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Try not to make unreasonable requests of helpers or employes today. They'll be surprisingly hostile if you lean on them. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Someone you're very close to does not want you probing too deeply into his affairs today. Keep a discreet distance.
