Manufacturing adds Job opportunities The growth of manufacturing in Iowa last year added 5,8 .'ifl job opportunities, a report from the Iowa Manufacturers association showed today. Of that total. job opportunities were created in manufacturing plants and 2,-17!) were created in retail stores, construction or other lines of business activity. "This latter figure is based on a research study of the United States Chamber of Commerce which showed that 71 jobs are created in other business activity as the result of each 1(H) new manufacturing jobs established." said Harry D. Linn. IMA executive vice president. "It also shows that expansion of manufacturing has a greater impact on the economy than the industrial growth alone." Applying the research study figures, the creation of 3,359 new jobs in manufacturing would result in an increase in personal income of $19,765.(XX). On the average. IMA said, this also would bring about an increase in retail sales of S12 .060.IHK) and a rise in bank deposits of $9,045,000. Other results of Iowa 's 1961 growth in manufacturing, applying the Chamber of Commerce figures, would be the establishment of 3,752 more households, an increase in the number of school children by 1,700, opening of 134 more retail stores and an in crease of 3,58-1 in the number of passenger cars registered. "It is easy to see how the growth of manufacturing promotes growth throughout the economy," Linn said. "And, it demonstrates the importance of maintaining a favorable industrial climate in this state to encourage further expansion of manufacturing."
