Trends in jobs and incomes on a nationwide basis often don't fit aur own experience or thai of The government say?, for in-anee. that today 61.6S5.000 Amer-•ans have jobs. That's 35 percent more than in 1939. If you live in ome states you know that the in-rease has been much less than thai. If you live in some others— along the Pacific Ccast. in the in dustrial Midwest or in tne KOCKy Mountain area — you know the national figure understates the gains. 25 Per Cent Drop And if you are a farm worker. iu know there are "5 per cent wer jobs for you today than in 1939. If you're one of the three illion out of work, all "prosper-y" stories may rub your hair the rong way. Government figures for the na tion as a whole put annual income at SI. 660 per person. That's 208 per t better than m 1939 — but only ou don't take into account what has happened to the purchasing - of the dollar m the last 15 terms of the "1939 dollar", the gain is a more modest one of 53 per cent. Yet that's for the nation as a whole. In five sections of the land per capita incomes are lower than the national average. In four sections they are higher. Or take nonfarm jobs. There has been an increase of 59 per cent over-all in the last 15 years. But that doesn't mean that jobs in your particular field are that much more plentiful. / Mining Drop* Actually, there are 10 per cent fewer employed in mining than in 1939. But there are 138 per cent more jobs in the construction industry now than then. Governments at the various lev els, as you might suspect, hire 71 per cent more people now than 15 s ago. Trade and service jobs are right on the middle line— each having increased by 59 per cent. Jobs in financial institutions are up 53 per cent and 40 per •e have work in transportation and utility companies. Regional differences, as broken 5wn by Dun tc Bradstreet, ar »-en more striking.
