Worsen if New Jobs Are Not Created Illinois must oreate 200 new jobs each day for the next 10 years, the Vice President of the Chicago Urban League says in the current issue of Now City Magazine. Frank H. Cassell, personnel director of Inland Steel Co. and Urban League official, writes that, “The State of Illi nois faces a serious, complex and mounting potential of unemployment. Every day for the next ten years it must create 200 new jobs, or 759, 000, to accommodate new en trants into the work force. “This is twice the number of jobs created in the decade of 1950-60. Our failure to meet this challenge could be a major factor in the state’s fiscal problems, a subject constantly in the headlines recent months.” Cassell, Chairman of Gov. Otto Kerner’s committee on unemployment, said that job lessness destroys men and human values. “In a society where the common belief is that a man who works is useful and one who does not is not useful, unemployment becomes more than a problem of economics —it becomes one with deep moral and personal under tones. “A job not only provides in come,” he continued, “it pro vides standing in the com munity and self-respect. A job, and not just the income from it, is as much a neces sity for the average American as his daily bread, the cloth ing he wears, and the shelter over his head.” Cassell said that “Continu ed unemployment thus strikes at the basic existence of every person who cannot find work. In addition to its rav ages in human values, how ever, unemployment above and beyond the irreducible minimum represents a n economic loss to the commun ity—and a sociological prob lem with grave implications for the future.” The Urban League official added, “For the jobless per son of today, the job-finding process is a difficult, bewild ering experience.
