The rewards a Man got for his work depended on the kind of work he did which meant How useful he was to the communist party which ran the government. House in the country thus a physicist working on the atom bomb or an artist or a movie director could have a House in the country and maybe a car and servants but a factory worker had to squeeze into one room with his wife and two children.

T and soviet workers and the roles no met As pos which labor unions play or Are permitted to play in the two countries. And in any contrast of this kind nothing stands out More ironically than the role of communists in the american labor movement. In this country a Union can bargain freely with an owner for the highest wage a Plant will Bear and even strike to obtain its demands. In Russia a strike is unthinkable according to the communist theory strike against Saif the government owns All industries. All Plant managers Are employees of the government. So Are the workers. But everything in russian including the plants belongs to the people. Therefore a worker who struck would be striking but against his own property. Since a strike is unthinkable under this kind of reasoning a strike became not a strike but sabotage. A worker who led his Fellows off a Job would not be prosecuted for striking but for sabotage. Because the communist party is the government the communists can make the theory a reality by being in a position to impose the penalties. The penalties Are drastic. This makes russian Trade unions not an aggressive instrument of the workers demands but an aesthetic to keep them quiet.
