Transcript SHOP TALKS ON ECONOMICS 57 your companions of the mines, your mill hand friends, to every possible office. Put yourselves or your coworkers into every government position as fast as possible to render your court decisions, to hold in readiness your army; to control your arsenals and to protect you with your constabulary, to make your laws and to serve your fellow workers, whenever and wherever and however possible. And organize industrially. With your government at your backs, ready to ward off Capitalism, ready at all times to throw itself into battle for you, you can gather the workers of the world into your industrial organization and sign the death warrant of Wage Slavery! QUESTIONS. Which is the most benefit to the working class, a rise in wages or shorter hours? AVhat is the greatest hindrance to the workers securing higher wages? Or better conditions of any kind? W/hat would be the effect of a general shortening of the hours of labor in one nation? Do shorter hours tend to increase or decrease wages? Why? If the general workday were suddenly to be lengthened three hours a day, what would be the effect upon unemployment? Would this tend to reduce or increase wages? Explain why shorter hours tend to increase wages. When you seek a job you meet your boss as the seller of a commodity. What is the commodity? What determines the price (or wages) you will got for your labor power? What determines the value of this commodity? What determines the price of any commodity? What determines the VALUE of a commodity? Do supply and demand affect the value of a commodity? Do they affect the PRICE of a commodity?
