OUTPUT INCREASED
DURING NOVEMBER
The total number of wage and
salary workers employed in non
agricuRural industries in mid
Novembèr was 137,200, about 3%
above November last year, accord
ing to •a* répoft released today by
the Unemployment Compensation
Commisison of Montana.
NoVember . employment shows a
slight 'decline from the October
level fëfléctinè the shift from out
door to indoor occupations as the
winter season gets under way. De
creases in food processing, con (ruc
tion and transportation were offset
by increases in mining and trade,
however further losses if govern
ment employment reduced the over
all figure to about 100 below the
October estimate.
There were 3900 more persons
employed in November 1947 than
in November 1946. In the major in
dustrial groups manufacturing in
creased 3%, mining 7%, contract
construction 4%, transportation 4%,
trade 4%, and finance and service
3%. Total government employ
ment declined 1% with a decrease
of 18% in the number of federal
employees.
Food processing in November
shows a loss from October of about
400 workers as some phase of sugar
refining were completed.. Further
declines were also noted in dairy
products and the beverage indus
tries.

I Metal mining increased about 400
over October as miners continue to
return to the industry from farm
ing and other outside jobs for the
winter months. Employment in the
mines is about 12.5% above the last
year level reflecting the greater
avaüability of labor.
!. Wholesale and retail trade up
1.5% from the October level is fol
lowing its normal seasonal pattern,
but on a plane» about 4.4% above
l^t year.
u PrehmmaiT estimates for Decern
(ber 1947 indicate that employment
wi H be 137,500 or 300 more than
* n November, declines in manufac
turing and construction being over
compensated by increases in trade
and government. With the approach
of the Christmas season estimates
indicate an increase of about 800
workers in the postal service.
