High demand aids
fast food workers

The number of temporary
employees at the MUG has dropped
from 50 percent of the work force
to less than 5 percent,
Bob Leichow, personnel
manager of the MUG, attributes the
lack of student interest to students'
improved financial status. "Students
who go here now have money.
Their parents support them and they
don't want or need to work," he
MARK WOLOK, a business
school junior and MUG employee,
said the other employees did not
object to temporary workers
receiving a higher salary - they
were just glad to have the help.
Jim Youngquist, manager of
Rax restaurant, attributes the
difficulty of recruiting workers to
the shrinking pool of applicants and
the growing number of fast food
restaurants. "The baby boom is
over and the people in that age
bracket are gone," he said, adding
that the fast food market has
expanded so much that restaurants
have to compete for employees.
According to the MESC, the
unemployment rate reported
through Aug. 31 was 7.9 percent
for the state of Michigan, 4.6
percent for Washtenaw County, and
2.8 percent for Ann Arbor.
Washtenaw County has the
lowest unemployment rate in the
state for people between the ages of
18 and 65, excluding full-time
IN AN EFFORT to
compensate for staff shortages, fast
food restaurants are appealing to
non-traditional applicant pools. In a
radio ad last spring, McDonald's
encouraged housewives and senior
citizens to apply. "We hired one
senior citizen and he was great,,,
said Rosie Fellhauer, owner of the
McDonald's on Maynard Street.
Most fast food restaurants in
Ann Arbor are offering higher pay.
According to Bleich, if one
restaurant raises its hourly wage,
then others will soon follow. For
closing shifts, Rax pays $4.00 per
hour starting pay, McDonald's and
Taco Bell pay $4.50, and Burger
King pays $3.85. Taco Bell also
offers a one-week paid vacation to
employees who work at least 30
hours per week for one year.
Some restaurant employees
create their own benefits. Three
Burger King employees said they
like working there because the
hours are flexible and because they
can show up late for work because
there is no one to replace them.

Last year's dialogue group
decided to continue meeting after
the weekend workshop was
completed, and the new dialogue
group will have the same option.
HILARY SHADROUI, a
history graduate student and a
member of last year's dialogue
group, said the group helped break
down stereotypes. "The exercises
and games helped us get to know
each other as human beings instead
of Arabs and Jews," Shadroui said.
Mula, 28, was born in Northern
Israel. His parents urged him not to
speak out about the Arab-Israeli
conflict, fearing it would hurt his
employment opportunities in Israel,
but Mula said he felt he "had no
choice but to choose this kind of
After graduating from Jerusalem
University with a bachelor of arts
degree in philosophy and Middle
East history, Mula worked at the
Van Leer Foundation in Jerusalem,
developing co-existence curriculum.
Earlier this year he directed teacher
training at the International Center
for Peace in Tel Aviv.
"I don't do this kind of work
because I love Jews and I don't
expect Jews to work for co-
existence because they love Arabs,"
Mula said. "I want to exist and
dialogue between the two groups
can make it possible for both of
them to exist peacefully."
Brawer is a founding member of
Kibbutz Lavon, an industrial
settlement in the Galil region of
Israel. Brawer said he hopes the
settlement, located in an area that is
half Arab, will promote cooperation
between Arabs and-Jews.

Senate Republican leader Robert
Dole, (R-Kan.), told a conference in
Atlanta yesterday that it would be a
"terrible mistake" to cut an arms
deal with Iran. "We all want the
hostages home," he said, "but I
don't think we want to deal with
(Ayatollah Ruhollah) Khomeini in
an effort to do that."
But other Rennblicans defended
the reported administration
activities, saying it is desirable to
improve relations with Iran and
attempt to moderate its extremism.
"The wider goal here is to try to
bring about a more moderate group
of leadership in Iran. ... We've
made some strides in that regard,"
said Sen. Orrin Hatch, (R-Utah), a
member of the Senate Intelligence
Committee, appearing on CBS'
"Face the Nation."

Shore has been teaching self-

this to a "fear of facing up to the
