Insured Employment and Worker Earnings

Record #:
In the third quarter of 1957, insured employment reached a new high, moving upward from over 829,000 to over 857,000. Although seasonal trends are present, employment levels have been higher since 1956 when insurance covered was lowered from coverage of eight to four or more workers per business. Employment increases were seen in all industry groups except service, and gross wages were up 5 percent of those in 1956.
