New High
OTTAWA — (CP) —Hourly
wages in manufacturing touched
another new peak at Oct. 1, with
British Columbia leading the way.
British Columbia's average figure of $1.26 an hour was well
above the national average of
$1.05, a Dominion bureau of
statistics   reported   today.
Nova Scotia's 91 cents was the
lowest for the eight provinces—
all except Newfoundland and
Prince Edward Island—for which
figures were provided.
Other provincial averages
were: $1.11 for Ontario, $1.07 for
Saskatchewan, $1.05 for Alberta,
$1.02 for Manitoba, 94 cents for
Quebec and 93 cents for New
Brunswick. All were up from a
month previously.
The national average showed
a slight increase from the previ-
out high of $1.04 at Sept. 1, and
compared with 99 cents a year
earlier.
The national weekly average for
hourly-rated workers in manufacturing also hit a new high of
$45.07, compared with $43.74 on
Sept 1 and $42.40 a year earlier.
The bureau said seasonal expansion of operations in many
industries, plus wage increases
and premium overtime work in
some plants, were factors in the
rises of hourly and weekly
earnings.
