(DPI) No Progress In Jobless Rate In Six Months WASHINGTON <UP» Unemployment declined slightly to 6,9 per cent in September with some gains for blacks, but it reflected no progress in total joblessness in six months, the Labor Department reported today. The September level was 0.2 per cent below August. . Unemployment has hovered around 7 per cent since April, refusing lo go any lower than the postrccession low of 6.9 per cent. This continued sluggishness in the labor market is likely to increase pressure on President Carter for some change in the administration's economic policy. Joblessness was 7.3 per cent when he took office in January. The present jobless rate compares lo a recession high of 9 per cent In 1S7S. and a 1976 high of 8 per cent. Last month's modest 150,000 decline in unemployment occurred among workers recalled from layoff. Black unemployment fell to 13.1 per cent, reversing an August rise to 14.5 per cent that had created a public furor. The nation's job rolls, meanwhile, continued to expand to 91.1 million persons in September, reflecting a near record percentage of jobholders In the American population. Employment was up 320.000.: Black groups are asking Carter to do something more for minorities and September's report is not expected to defuse their complaints. The ratio of black-to-while joblessness now exceeds 2 to 1, While white joblessness has declined over the past year, there has been no real gains for blacks. Unemployment among black youths has fluctuated between 35 and 40 per cent over the past three years. In September, unemployment tell slightly to 4.9 per cent for men, but the 7 per cent rate among women and 18.1 per cent rate among the young reflected little change from August. The average duration of unemployment rose to 14.5 weeks In September, and there . wa* virtually no change during the third quarter in the nation's l.l million discouraged workers who have even quit looking for a )*. Employment rose for both blacks and whites in Sep- tember, creating a 320,000 increase in the job rolls. An unusually large rise of 500,000 for women was offset somewhat by a 210,000 decline among teenagers. Jobs in manufacturing increased slightly, but no! enough lo reverse an August decline. Most new jobs were created in service industries — retail trade and government. Arthur Okun. economic adviser in the Johnson administration, warns that unemployment will not improve unless there is a change in government policy. , "Unemployment remains high, because production has not grown enough to generate the jobs required to gel us back to prosperity." he said Thursday, Okun is a Brookings Institution economist, who chaired Lyndon Jolinson's Council of Economic Advisers. He is a friend and former associate of President Carter's CEA chairman, Charles Schultze. In a Chicago, speech Thursday, which was released here, Okun called for less federal regulation coupled with more growth In federal spending and the money supply. He also said federal subsidies should be granted to state "and local governments that repeal sales taxes. His final suggestion was a federal tax credit for businesses and workers that agree lo restrain price and wage increases.
