Ownership of clothing among workers in 1957: 0.51 wool suit per worker; 1.05 nonwool
suit, 0.8 pair of wool trousers, 0.6 wool jacket per person.
We are looking for a price point of $500 to $800 for nonwool
rugs and $1,000 to $1,600 for wool in a 9-by-12 size.
Some of these industries, such as wet corn milling (SIC 2046), nonwool
yarn mills (SIC 2281) and motor vehicles and equipment (SIC 371), increased output and decreased employee hours in both periods, while others, such as tires and inner tubes, did so in only one period.
These were metal forming machine tools (--8.7 percent); steel foundries and nonwool
yarn mills (both --3.9 percent); oilfield machinery (--3.4 percent); gay iron foundries (--1.9 percent); and cigarettes (--0.2 percent).
The study covered 223 establishments primarily engaged in dyeing and finishing nonwool
yarn, thread, cloth, or other textile products and employing 50 workers or more.
