The article presents news briefs related to the labor force in the U.S. as of January 1967.

Several state laws related to labor are presented including operator's permit for agricultural labor camps in Indiana. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has revealed that more than 7 and a half million jobs will be added to the American economy by 1970.
