A4 FRIDAY, JUNE 5, 1998 Money THE SALINA JOURNAL T ECONOMY Economy shows a few chinks in armor Productivity and factory orders dip; applications for unemployment rise By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Hints of trouble; are emerging in the just-right lESi>.!economy, including a lapse in vg^rker productivity gains, a drop h* demand for most factory goods aSft a jump in applications for un- ejjployment benefits. Americans, however, turned out in force at s&opping malls in May. !]Growth in the productivity of rtjinfarm workers fell to an annual rate of 1.1 percent in the first three months of the year, in part be- cjluse employers hired more people to handle an expanding workload. Still, that was considerably bet- tSF'than the 0.2 percent estimate of IJgf month, the Labor Department said Thursday. Nonetheless, it represented a slip from the 1.4 percent rate of the last three months of 1997. And it's down considerably from the 1.8 percent average through 1996 and 1997. In other economic news: • Large retail chains posted strong results for the fifth consecutive month in May, with discount and moderately priced department stores faring best. Good weather encouraged shopping. • Factory orders rose 1.2 percent in April, the biggest increase in five months, the Commerce Department said. However, the rise was only because of a 62 percent jump in orders for aircraft. Other orders fell 0.3 percent. • The number of Americans filing claims for unemployment benefits unexpectedly surged up by 30,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 339,000, the highest level since early January. TAT&T Managers thrilled with retirement More AT&T executives take early retirement package than company had anticipated By MAGGIE JACKSON The Associated Press NEW YORK — AT&T manager Barbara Harris didn't shed any tears when the company offered to buy her out after 31 years on the job. She was thrilled. "When the offer came in the mail, I only had to read it once to decide," said Harris, a 49-year-old supervisor of New York City telephone technicians. "I've been here for a long time. It's time for me to move on." Downsizings are often followed by wailing and worries. But a hot job market, a boom on Wall Street and a generous voluntary retirement package has AT&T managers practically lining up for the latest effort to cut jobs at the nation's largest telecommunications company. AT&T said Wednesday that 14,000 managers, about 4,000 more than expected, have signed up for an early retirement package of- fered in January. The deadline to sign up was Friday. Harris said that because of low unemployment rates she is confident she'll find another job. Her buyout package was so generous, she said, that she won't need to worry about matching her AT&T salary at her next job. Managers make up about half AT&T's 128,000 employees. The company gave managers the opportunity to retire early with up to 20 percent more of their pensions than they'd normally be entitled to. Early retirement was made all the more alluring by the fact that 401(k) plans have been greatly swelled by stock market gains. "More than one manager is leaving as a millionaire," said AT&T spokesman Burke Stinson. The latest job cuts for the Basking Ridge, N.J.-based company are aimed at helping to cut $1.6 billion this year alone. For AT&T managers who want to continue working, the timing couldn't be better. Anyone with technology and management credentials is a hot item in today's tight job market. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the April unemployment rate for man- agers and professionals was a low 1.9 percent. The national rate that month was 4.3 percent, a 28-year low. "These people will be in new jobs in equal or higher salaries in two to four months maximum," said Alan Schonberg, chairman of Management Recruiters International, a large national executive search firm. "The candidate is king these days." Of course, all that is not lost on companies that downsize but dread the hard-hearted image that can come with such moves. "With the unemployment rate in many places at 2, 3 or 4 percent, this is a tremendously good time to unload people," said David Birch, president of Cognetics, a Cambridge, Mass, economics research firm. Xerox also has seen downsizing become less of a dirty word thanks to the economy. In April, the company announced the elimination of 9,000 jobs worldwide, its biggest cut in five years. "This announcement of restructuring hasn't produced the kind of trauma and hand-wringing that downsizing in years past did," said spokesman Brent Laymon. "It says something about the economy."

The retailer last split its stock in January 1993, when it gave investors another share for each one they owned. The next split would be the sixth since 1983. Chief Executive David Glass is expected to tell shareholders about improved results at the Sam's Club warehouse stores, international expansion plans and the retailer's emphasis on keeping costs low by trimming inventory. In the fiscal first quarter, Wal-Mart reported its biggest rise in per-share profit in five years. Motorola to cut work force by 10 percent CHICAGO, 111. — Motorola Inc. is laying off 15,000 employees over the coming 12 months, the electronics giant announced Thursday. The 10 percent reduction in its worldwide work force is part of a series of steps the company is taking to improve its slumping financial performance. "The goal is to generate annualized savings, once all actions have been implemented, of more than $750 million," said Robert Growney, Motorola's president and chief operating officer.
