Transcript the scope of the general struggle of the working class is the realization of socialist youth education on the basis of the transformation of the conditions of labor for youth. But even before the conquest of power by the proletariat the Young Communist Leagues struggle energetically for the betterment of the young workers' situation. This struggle aims at the protection of the young workers against the growing misery and degeneration resulting from capitalist exploitation, and strives to increase the power of resistance of the working class by raising its standard of living; all this to the end of depriving the capitalists of some of their advantageous strongholds and of uniting the masses of young workers to fight for their most elementary and immediate demands. The basis and the goal of our programme is the SOCIALIST REORGANISATION OF JUVENILE LABOR This means the abolition of wage slavery for all young workers up to eighteen years of age. They must be cared for by the state and treated from the point of view of education, until they hav?. attained this age. Aside from our relentless opposition to all child labour, which naturally requires no further explanation, our partial demands for all young workers of both sexes up to eighteen years are the following: Minimum wages ranging from the subsistence minimum upwards. Equal wages for equal work, for young and adult workers of both sexes. Progressive grading of apprentices' wages during the course of apprenticeship. If the six hour day is established, wages are to be paid for eight hours. Wages of all young workers to 'be determined by trade union agreements. Six hour working day with the inclusion of, and full pay for, continuation school hours. Forty four hour week end rest. Strict prohibition of night work for all young workers up to twenty years. Prohibition of piece work and of the speeding up system. Fully paid four weeks' annual vacation. Free accomodation of young workers in recreation homes, sanatoriums, etc. 3' . 35
