.'-,:'•> ' 10-B—UJUQCX-AVALANCHE-JOURNAL—Safurday Morning. April 5. 1975' U.S; Unemployment Hits Highest Mark Since ' NEW YORK CAP) — Then there's the old story, about the man who while millions of people were out of work, complained he couldn't get anyone to fix his car. Only the story is current. Unemployment in March wos 8.7 per cent, the highest since 1941, it was announced Friday. But jobs — hundreds of thousands of them — remain unfilled. •And it's no joke when good jobs arc not filled because no one has the training required <ifld thousands of persons look for work in already over- ci-owded job markets. -Based on U.S. Employment Service estimates, more than 700,000 jobs were open in January, the latest month for which it has such figures'and a rnonlh when the unemployment rate was 8.2 per cent. At that rgtc, 7.5 million Americans were out of work. '.Van M. Evans of Deulsch, Shea and Evans, Inc., a New York firm that specializes in job surveys, estimates an even — were the kind of jobs that licggin: more than one mil Jipn. 'The employment service list cd 1G job areas for which there were more than 1,000 openings in January. One such job was the auto mechanic needed to fix .hat car, and many of the others ~ computer programmer, machinist, carpenter, elec- .rician, bookkeeper secretary — were the ind of jobs that require technical skills but no college education, For those with college de- ;rces, engineering, accounting, nursing and sales are among areas where jobs are open. The need for engineers, or at cast some types of engineers, llustrates one reason why many jobs go unfilled. "The pendulum does swing," s the way Jack Kozich of the Snelling & Snelling employment agency explained it. "After the sort of semidemise of the aerospace industry, people were frightened away — the youngsters." The semi-demise Kozich spoke of began with the recession of 19B8, which was particularly hard on engineers and stopped many a parent from telling his cbjld, "If you always want a job, be an engineer.' 1 Wayne E. Glenn, Continental Oil Co.'s western hemisphere president, testified recently at a government hearing that 75,000 new engineers are needed each year but colleges graduate (/Official..

In a larger sense, the same eason can be cited for the lack £ people for technical jobs that equire no college education. Evans says that in recent •ears parents and high school oungeliers became so cnam- red"pf college degrees that ley fdrgot about the many /oil-paying technical jobs with dvancement opportunities. "We raised a whole gener- tion thinking you have to go to ollege and get a degree — or ivcn an advanced degree," he aid. The result, Evans said, has icen that many people getting ut of college can't find work vhile technical jobs go unfilled. "Today we have lavyyers oming out our ears," he'said, adding that teachers, to, cannot find jobs in the face of hrinking enrollments. At the- same time, Evans ;aid, jobs are open for tech nicians to meet the nation's new energy and pollution-con irol needs. He also said that a single agency should be created to orecast future job needs, rather than leaving it to the."willy- nilly" market place. His com- jlaint about separation between market 'place and job market was reflected at a General Dynamics Corp. - shipyard near Boston, where the jobless rate vas 10.4 per cent in February. Tom Clark, the yard's cm ployrnent manager, said TV commercials and a'$5.07 hourly vage failed to draw the 150 shipfitters needed to meet the yard's schedule. Clark wants to lire 300 welders too. "I wish I could find them," he said. "The people must be out there." Clark's complaint illustrates anpther reason for unfilled jobs amid high unemployment — the people must bo out there, but where? An out-of-work ship- fitter in California with a fami- y may not want to move to Boston for a job. The American Nurses' Association says that while nurse's iobs are tough to find on the West and East Coasts, they are open in some oi the wide open spaces in between. And while one job on the employment service list was policeman, police are being laid off in some cities. For the future, employment service projections point to more technicians needed. For the present, its list of open jobs included only two for which little training was needed: guard and waiter.
