13 Million Remain on
Same Job Since Sec
ond World War
Th American working population
has tradition of mobility and flexi
bility to meet the nation's changing
manpower requirements,, such as in
the current semi-mobilisation econo
my, but it has a large degree of
stick-tc-itiveness as well, v-1 . ; "
"A recent study ' of job tenure in
principal occupational groups by the
Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that
13 million workers, or more than' a
fifth, of the 59 million employed at
the time of the survey, had been on
the same job they held prior ' to
Aimerica'a entry into World War II in
1941 nine years or more. The type
of work engaged in and age were im
port factors in job tenure.
The survey covers the labor force
in January, 1951, and it naturally in.
chides many persons then too young
to have long tenure on tne jod. .
also includes a large number whose
job tenure had been interrupted by
entry into the Armed rorces. -mm
the proportion of long-tenure employ
ees would be considerably higher than
nn nut. of everv five workers if cal
culated on a base consisting only of
those with ; continuous labor lorce
participation throughout the period.

An analysis by age composition of

Importance of Occupation
Occupation is of major importance,
too. in the length of job .tenure, par
ticularly where self-employment is
involved. Thus it is not surprising
to find farmers having the longest
record of all the occupational groups
on a proportional basis, and the mana
gerial and proprietary class in second
place. However, the figures show
millions of workers with long tenure
in the other occupational groups as
well. ' .. ..
