mately 3,500.000 workers were affect
ed by labor controversies, strike's and
lockouts during tbe government fiscal
5 ear ending June 30, it is estimated
here today, on a basis of reports be
ing prepared for Director Hugh Ker
win of the conciliation bureau of the
Department of Labor.
The reports when completed will
show that the bureau has been asked
to mediate in S00 cases involving ap
proximately 1,053.000 workers, KerUn
believed, or about half the number in
volved during the fiscal year end'ng
June 30. 1919.
It is estimated that in 1920 workers
lost roughly $173,000,000 in wages.'as
sumlng an average wage of $5 a day
and a total of ten days lost by each
man. Strikes not continuing at least
ten dajs are rare.
The loss to employers is about $700,-
000,000 in value of production curtail
ed if wages represent one-fourth of
the value of production.
The steel strike alone is estimated
to have cost the workers approximate
ly $3,000,000 a day in lost wages. The
wage losses of the outlaw railway
strike totaled nearly as much as th-ise
of tbe steel workers.
