Labor Supply Dwindles in Durham Area, Unemployment Figure Drops The number cf nana'^ricultural wage and salary workers in the Durham area for nriJ-May was placed at 37,570. a decline of 295 people below the level of two months ago iHit a gain of G80 workers in cc.-hparison with the corresponding period of last year. I There have been substantial employment gains over the past^ sixty days in the categories ofj machinery, contract construction,, and the utilities group, with con tract construction adding the greatest number of worl.ers to itsj pay rolls. j These gains were offset, how-' ever, by seasonal layoffs in the I tobacco industry which conse quently resultec in a modest t'jwntum in total wage aad sal ary employment. Tlie substantial increase in tke number of gainfully employed v.orkcr! over the comparable per iod of last year is the reflection of a higher level of activity in practically all phases of the local economy. The categories of ma chinery, construction, and wholo- sale and retail trade have exper ienced sizeable gaina over the;r year-ago levels. The number of people current ly unemployed in the Durham area is placed at 3,300, representing al most 7.0 per cent of titc total ci vilian lal>or force.
