^tfiiXiL 1 ^ i'wK- »^ MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 18 · 1937 SEVEN SURVEY IS MADE OF U, S. JOBLESS 6 , 5 0 0 Occupations Are Represented in Those *·· Seeking Jobs. . WASHINGTON, (IP)--The nation's unemployed represent G.500 out of a possible 8,000 occupations. This was shown in a survey made by the U. S. employment service, which also disclosed t h a t ot the 3,098 counties in the nation only seven had no persons registered /or jobs with the federal service or affiliated siate agencies when these were checked on two different dates. Only about 150 counties have less than 100 registered job seekers. To find any section's approximate share of unemployment, the figures indicate, it is necessary only to determine the area's percentage of the total population of normal employment. Example Is Presented. For instance, the east south central slates of Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi have 8.1 per cent of the nation's population. Early in 1930 they had 7.7 per cent of the gainfully employed persons, and now have 7.8 per cent of the registered job-seekers. The occupations ot Ihe persons looking for work are shown in this percentage table: Occupation Men -Women Professional, kindred work 3.5 S.B Salespersons ,1.1 4 R Clerical 4A 15.5 Service W o r k e r s, (domestics, j a m -' tors, beauty operators, etc.) 6.7 50.9 Skilled workers ... 22.6 3.6 Semi-skilled workers . 2.6 8.5 Unskilled work e r s unassigned 4.4 '9.0 These figures may vary seasonally but comparative studies of the federal agency indicated they are representative. Are Analyzed Industrially. Analyzed industrially, the percentage figures shed more light on what the unemployed can clo. The following is based on the "Last regular employment" of the job hunters: Wnin- Mcn en forestry, 17.4. l.B (public Industry-Agriculture, fishing . . . . Construction and private) "." 14.3 Manu factu ri ng, c x traction of minerals 22.0 Commercial, professional service, finance 2.4 Distribution (whole" sale and retail) .:. 9.1 Domestic and personal service 4.4 Utililies and transportation 6.0 .7 Governmental service 3.6 3.2 Miscellaneous and unspecified 20.8 41.9 The agricultural figure here may be high, the survey indicates, because many farmers and farm hands seek extra jobs outside the crop seasons. .2 11.9 ·4.1 "6.9 2H.5 Your Federal Income Tax No. 15. Exemption Allowed Slate Employes. The compensation of officers and employes of a state or any political subdivision of a state or any political subdivision thereof, which is paid from public funds of the slate or political subdivision, as d i s t i n g u i s h e d from amounts collected from individuals or private corporations, if the services of such officers or em- ployes are rendered in connection with activities which constitute the discharge of an essential governmental function, as distinguished from a proprietary function, is exempt from federal income lax. The compensation of such officers and employes is subject to federal income tax if their services were rendered in connection with the exercise of a proprietary function. For example, the compensation of the governor of a state, the mayor of a city, coundJinen, board of aldermen, public-school teachers, firemen, and policemen is not subject to federal income tax. The compensation of such officers and em- ployes whose services are connected with the liquidation by the state of insurance companies or banks, which is paid from funds of the companies being liquidated, is not exempt from federal income tax. Compensation received by employes of a municipality owned waterworks or street railway or electric light plant is subject to federal income tax, as such activi- lies are proprietary rather than governmental in character. Fees for special services to a slate are taxable, as, for example, compensation paid architects and builders for p l a n n i n g and erecting a state capitol or other state or municipal building. An officer or an employe of a state, for the purpose of the income (ax Jaw, is one whose services are continuous and not occasional or temporary. Prize Winners Named.
