BUSINESS

Jobs:Reputation is best publi city

By FRANCIE ALLEN
with wire reports
Students looking for a part-time job
in Ann Arbor will be able to find
openings next semester, according to
local business owners. But those
openings should be filled quickly.
Usually a job's reputation among
students is the best publicity for a job.
"It looks like a fun job. It is a fun
job," said Tessa Shaefer, a shift
supervisor at Steve's Ice Cream.
Shaefer added that almost all of
Steve's employees are University
students.
AT ULRICH'S Book Store, Cor-
porate General Manager Tom Musser
said student customers, who are im-
pressed with the store, often become
student employees.
Flexible scheduling appears to be
the single most important con-
sideration for students wishing to
work and for employers wishing to at-
tract students.
Fast food restaurants, such as
Burger King and McDonald's tend to
hire a large proportion of college
students, and managers value the
ability to provide flexible scheduling
for their employees.

'It looks like a fun job. It is a fun job.'
-Tessa Shaefer
Steve's Ice Cream supervisor

"THAT'S ONE of the best things
about working at McDonald's.. . they
schedule you around your schedule."
said Donna Armsead, a manager at
McDonald's.
"I enjoy working there (East
Quad), andit doesn't take too much of
your time. You can schedule your
studying around it," said LSA
sophomore Jeff Miller, a University
food service employee.
Student workplaces, such as
Ulrich's and the MUG Eateries and
Commons agree that they have little
trouble in attracting students at the
start of each semester. But there are
frequently difficulties in retaining
adequate student help towards the

end of the semester, when schoolwork
and other responsibilities pile up.
"I THINK they (the students) get
overly ambitious about what they can
handle, and that's the balance bet-
ween work and school," said Jeff
Kloiber, the manager at the MUG.
Kloiber said that the MUG loses
employees but alsohattracts more
customers during the final exam
period.
Business and campus workplaces
cope with the lack of student help
towards the end of the semester in dif-
ferent ways.
KLOIBER says that the MUG will
usually try and help its student work-

force out by reducing hours in order to
give students a chance to catch up in
their studies. But the MUG makes it a
point of warning new student em-
ployees that they are expected to
work through the finals period.
Some business owners, in fact, say
they have found employees such as
University graduates or high school
students more suitable for their
business because they live in town
year round and often have more
flexible schedules.
However, at the University of
Virginia, no one knows for certain
why students are becoming leery of
taking part-time jobs.
"Students getting money from their
parents is the major reason," said
A.K. Bhagat, head of the University of
Virginia's food services. "They're
letting mom and dad pay for it."
Bhagat said that he has 210 part-
time jobs unfilled. The lack of
workers is causing some delays in
serving the 6,000 students his depar-
tment feeds every day.
Other part-time jobs at University
of Virginia, such as clerical and
library work, are also taking longer tc
fill than in the past.

Middle
class tin
trouble,

WASHINGTON (AP) - Many members of the "baby
boom" generation, now in their 30s, are finding they can't
match their parents' middle class achievements of nice
homes, financial security and children's education, the
authors of a new study said Saturday.,
"All around us, there are signs that the middle class is
in trouble," said the study commissioned by the
congressional Joint Economic Committee.
"SINGLE PERSONS are postponing marriage.
Families are postponing having children. Good jobs in
manufacturing are being lost. Young people feel substan-
tial economic pressure."

The authors said some analysts fear the situation won't
improve until the federal budget deficit is greatly reduced
- an action that in itself would probably lower living
standards in the short run.
In comments released with the report, Rep. David
Obey, (D-Wis.), chairman of the committee, called the
situation "a serious problem."
"But in some ways 1973 was the last good year," said
the authors, University of Maryland public affairs
Professor Frank S. Levy and Richard Michel, director of
the income security and pension policy center at the Ur-
ban Institute in Washington.

Congress wrestles with deficit ceiings

WASHINGTON (AP) - Despite
serious misgivings, Congress appears
to have begun an unstoppable march
toward enactment of watershed
legislation to force an end to federal
budget deficits by fiscal 1991.
"This was an idea that wouldn't
die," Sen. Phil Gramm, (R-Texas),
one of the principal Senate sponsors of
the plan, said after congressional
negotiators ended a two-month
stalemate Friday and tentatively set-

tled on a compromise version of the
package.
ADDITIONAL details will be
worked out today and congressional
leaders predict that final action by the
full House and Senate could come as
early as Wednesday. President
Reagan has endorsed the concept of
the measure.
But some legislators are unhappy
about what they are about to do.
"It is absolutely irresponsible as

public policy, but as a result of our
public pronouncements about our
new-found courage, we cannot back
down," Sen. Nancy Landon
Kassebaum, (R-Kan.), said just hours
before the negotiators announced
their settlement.
"AFTER TWO tortuous months of a
regimented forced march, we have
reached the outskirts of a budgetary
Moscow - and it has started to

snow," she said.
In general, the plan would revise
the congressional budget process and
mandate automatic spending cuts if
Congress and the White House fail to
meet a series of statutory ceilings on
budget deficits aimed at reducing the
government's annual red ink from the
current $200 billion to zero by fiscal
1991.
To begin on that path, the plan will
require forced spending reduction of
about $11.6 billion in the current fiscal
year that began Oct. 1.
