DEFINITE DECLINE Local Employers Absorb ing Workers In Four County Area Now [ real employers are absorbing new workers at an accelerated rate In New Hanover, Brunswick, fender and Columbus counties, served by the Wilmington offices of ’he U. S. Employment Service, f i local officials forecast even higher rates or employment soon Unemployment claims have de ereised, and placement of regist ered workers has substantially in creased,” Harold M. Hinkle, local PSFS manager, said yesterday. All Out Aid The announcement came less than three months after the local effices declared all-out veterans 8 and better employer-employe relations, as well as direct em pinve.' contacts aimed at creating joh« locally for both veterans and fine, veterans. “Of course normal and expected layoffs in key industries will keep tmnt unemployed figures up, but demands for labor by new indust ries and the construction program „•offset these layoffs, if the trend of the past 90 days is main tained" the manager predicted. No Major Problem Declaring that veterans ui»em< ployment is not a major problem, the manager pointed out that in an area of high employment, the ab sorption of unemployed veterans is showing improvement. USES placed 264 in agriculture and 849 in industrial jobs in June, a total of 1113 which is the highest recorded since V-J Day, according to Hinkle. New Work Expected Camp Davis construction hired a substantial number and the Brunswick River storage basin is expected to use several hundred men in the next 60 days. The prepared report, released yesterday through the local offices indicated there is also a shortage of female labor in the four-county area, as well as state-wide. One For Two “We have one job for every two females registered, but only one job for every 13 males registered,” the manager said by way of com paring the two types of workers.” Local industries can use at least 400 female workers in the next 90 days, whereas hardly 200 are now registered, and very few of these meet employers demands,” the manager said.
