SECY, WILSON PREDICTS MEN
LESS JOBS IN NEAR FUTURE
Washington, June 11. Menless
jobs instead of jobless men in the
very immediate future throughout
the United States were predicted by
Secretary of Labor Wilson, in sizing 9
up the labor outlook in a statement
today. The bumper wheat crop, re
vival of the iron-trade, with the con
sequent stimulation of mining and
other associated industries and con
tinued activity in the textile business,
are given by Wilson as his reasons
for prophesying prosperity with "lots
of work."
Specific requests for more than 80,
000 men to help harvest bumper
wheat crops have already reached the
Department of Labor. Missouri alone
has asked for 30,000 men. How to
get them West is the problem. As a
solution Secretary Wilson is planning
to negotiate with the railroads for
special excursions to the wheat belt
from Eastern cities, where the labor
might be obtained.
"Such a plan would give thousands
of men in the East a chance to get a
rural vacation and make money while
taking it," said Secretary Wilson. "It
would also effectually solve the prob
lem of how to get men to harvest the
wheat
"Western farmers are offering
from $2 to $2.50 a day and board for
harvest helpers.
"Whatever there is of nonemploy
ment today is caused chiefly by the
depression of the upnyand steel in-
dustry, resulting from failure of the v
railroads, which use 51 per cent of
the steel products of the country, to
place orders. Up to two months ago
mining was in a flourishing condition,
and it is bound to improve when the
big steel mills resume in full.
"With the outlook in sight I feel
safe in predicting that within a month
it will be no longer a question of jobs,
but a question of how to get men
enough to fill them."
