UP)--Employment in Iowa industries increased 3.90 per cent during March as compared with February, it was shown by the monthly report Issued today by the state bureau of labor. The gain was quite general and substantial advances were shown in groups of industries normally independent of seasonal demand, Commissioner Frank E. Wenig reported. Seasonally active industries showed greatly increased employment over February and a more stabilized operating schedule, he said. Pay roll data was reported to show an increase of 3.0 per cent for total weekly pay roll, a gain of 3.9 in employment, but a loss of 0.9 per cent for average weekly wages. This latter decline was said to indicate a reduction in workers in the higher brackets of the pay rolls.
