Older workers are often better
equipped to cope- with automa-
tion, a representative of organized
labor indicates in "The New Fron-
tiers of Aging," to be published by
the University Press Nov. 15.
Written by James Stern of the
UAW-CIO Automation Commit-
tee, the book declares: "The de-
creased physical effort and in-
creased responsibility on most
automated jobs makes the mature
responsible, reliable worker a bet-
ter choice in many instances than
the husky adolescent.
"In one automated plant where
discriminatory policies against
older workers were followed,"
Stern goes on, "tlae average age
of the work force was 25 years old.
During the course of a labor dis-
pute at this plant, the manager
admitted ruefully that the policy
of hiring only the young had its,
"He had a volatile work force
and would have been better off
with some older men with fami-
lies, homes and a more responsible
outlook on life."
As automation increases, Stern
suggests, the seniority basis of
workers will have to be increased.
