THE MICHIGAN DAILY
There are 150,000 men surplus men
employed in the coal industry at the
present time, according to Prof. Isador
Lubin ,of the economics department.
Not only is there a surplus of men,
but there are more mines than neces-,
sary to supply the country with coal
under normal conditions.
The actual productive capacity of
our coal mines is 640 million tons an-
nually, while the largest output ever
reached was 580 million tons. This
was produced in 1918.
Want Present Wages
The miners are asking a continu-
ance of theipresent wage scale, which
is $7 ts $7.50 per day on the average.
They are asking for a six-hour day,'
fve days a week. This will restrict
output, they hope, so that there will
be steadier employment in the field.
No permanent injury can be done
by granting the miners' demands re-
garding working hours, according to
Professor Lubin. He stated that the
average work done by coal miners
during the year 1919, which was a
good year in the coal industry, wax
30 hoursper week. They are trying
to stabilize their working conditions,
which at present are very irregular.
Depends on Non-union Men
"The, success of the strike will de-
pend on whether or not the non-union
miners will go out," said Professor'
Lubin. He added that it would be
difficult to predict which side will Win
the strike, as there is a lack of defi-
nite information as to the actual
number of men involved.
