Work Force In State Up; So Is Quit Pay Iowa's civilian work force reached 1,234,100 in May with over 70 per cent of the 35,000 gain from April resulting from increases in agricultural hired workers, self-employed workers and unpaid family members. According to the Iowa Employment Security Commission, seasonal gains were quite evident in non-farm employment, which rose 5,000 from April to 842,300 in May. Manufacturing employment declined 1,800 over the month. Labor-management disputes delayed the usual slight April-May manufacturing rise, the commission said. Non-manufacturing employment increased more than normally expected and added 7,200 workers over the month. Improved weather conditions increased construction employment 3,200. Service and miscellaneous employees rose 2,300, twice as much as usual for the April-May period. The Iowa unemployment rate was 2.1 per cent in May, compared to a national rate of 3.2 per cent. Unemployed entrants to the work force increased unemployment 900 from April to 25,600 in May. Insured unemployment, the number of weeks of unemployment benefits claimed by covered workers, totaled 5,691 in April. This was a drop of 1,106 weeks from April. However, compared to May 1966, insured unemployment increased 2,199 weeks. The average weekly wage of Iowa's manufacturing production workers dropped $1.89 from April to $122.36 in May. The hourly rate also dropped 3 cents to $3 an hour. Less overtime and labor-management disputes were responsible for both declines. During May, the manufacturing accession rate exceeded the separation rate for the first time in 1967. May accessions totaled 44 while separations totaled 41 per 1,000 manufacturing employees. Twenty-five of the 41 separations were quits. St. Joe Man Is Winner Of A New Car ST.
