On the economic front the current picture is a strangely mixed one. Four of every five persons interviewed say they are better off than a year ago— which should cheer the Republicans. But many voters still feel "things aren't quite right" or "it's time for a change." Letdown Feeling Some of this reflects a letdown feeling because the boom that was expected alter the steel strike has not materialized. "This seems particularly t?ue in steel-producing &M\*FS where last year's strike has been followed by slackened operations. In Canton. Ohio, the wife of a steelworker remarked bitterly, "We had four months' bills piled up after the strike. When we reconnected the telephone, all the calls we got were from people wanting bills paid." But more of the uneasiness does not contribute to a sense | of security. ; Unhappy With Unions I Nor are workers satisfied with what labor unions have been doing in the situation. Many union j members, even while arguing 'we have to catch up with ligher prices." go on to declare that "wage increases are the worst thing that could happen to us." Increasingly, workers are com ng to prefer hospitalization, insurance and other fringe bene- iits to straight wage increases There is also a growing feeling that the price rises which lollpvv a wage increase hurt job prospects. "The higher we push wages the more machinery they put In," runs one widely-held feeling. Other workers say, "If prices are raised who will buyj what we make?"
