manifest itself in a pronounced
uptrend in the of the work
ing population in the years

paratively slow growth of recent
years, according to data compiled
by the U. S. Bureau of Labor
The Bureau in its projections
expects the number or new wortt
ers to increase by 13 Vi million
persons in the Sixties. This
would be half again as great as
the number of entrants into the
work force ir the current decade,
as compared with only a minor
increase between the Fifties and
the preceding decade. A con

will not only be needed for busi-,

the years ahead. They will like

ever, the size of the increase in
the work force in the offing
lends new emphasis to the cur

growth performance and to the
principal factors that promote or
retard economic expansion.
In a high investment economy
such ,as ours, it is obvious that
the adequacy of savings and cap

Reversals of Hecenl Trends
The Bureau’s forecast shows
two interesting reversals of re
cent trends. The first is that
more men than women will enter
the work force in the next decade
and a half. During the Sixties,
for example, it is anticipated
that there will be 7.4 million
new male job seekers as against
6.1 million new female entrants
into the working force. An even
wider margin is expected in the
’Seventies. During the last two
decades, by contrast, the figures
show more women than men
.having gone into the working
population, with the working
wife scoring the biggest gain.
The second reversal of recent
trends is an anticipated expan
sion in the younger job seek
ers, particularly males under 35.
In the Sixties, for example, this
group is expected to increase by
over 5 million, and an even larg
er growth is forecast for the fol
lowing decade. This trend is of
particular nignificance since it is
tomorrow’s youth, with its rising
educational attainment and more
intensified training, that will be
I the source of the country’s orea
j tive and administrative brains of
| the future.
