Transcript some countries there is an attempt to veil these facts by a system of compulsory continuation school training. The obsolete conditions prevailing in such schools, which in most cases only serve to intensify the exploitation (by the extension of working hours, by causing extra expenses, etc.) call for an energetic struggle for a number of measures towards their systematic and thorough revision. The fact, furthermore, that the young workers, performing the labor of adult workers, receive lower wages than the latter—wages which hardly suffice to sustain life,—and still more, the miserable wages of the apprentices and the discrimination in the treatment of young as against adult workers in the matter of unemployment benefits— all these facts necessitate the establishment of immediate and concrete demands on the wage system of juvenile labor. The long working hours which menace the physical and mental well-being of the young workers, the night work, the lack of recreation and holidays, lead the working class youth of all countries to set up definite demands. The present hygienic conditions under which the youth is working are horrible; child labor is still being employed. The agricultural young workers are subject to particular exploitation. In spite of the varying local conditions, the miserable situation of the working class youth is the same everywhere in the capitalist world. From this fact arises the necessity of setting up economic demands of an international character and of combining them into an international program of demands. (3) The working class youth has previously had an international economic program, "Demands for the Economic Protection of the Youth", adopted a the first congress of the Young International at Stuttgart, in 1907. Although the fundamental basis of this program is still the property of the working class youth, it can no more be considered as the basis of the economic struggle of the Y.C.I, and must be revised and amended. This program does not give attention to the all-important question of wages of the young workers, nor does it demand the radical transformation of the system of education and vocational training, but contents itself with reformist demands for the improvement of the present system of apprentice-ship. Furthermore, the age limit for shorter working hours must be extended, and the problem of holidays, which is omitted in the old program, must be dealt with. Above all, however, the Stuttgart minimum program is a program of demands for reforms to be carried into practice within the bounds. ,. 48
