Transcript .;! of capitalist society by means of reformist methods. It lacks those elements which go beyond the limit of capitalist society and which serve to break it down, and which can be fully realized only after the overthrow of capitalism. Its avowed purpose is to "eliminate the worst instances of exploitation which prevent its victims even from participation in the struggle against the present economic system". The militant program of the Young Communist International, however, cannot respect the exigencies of the capitalist economic system nor be merely a means to eliminate the worst instances of the exploitation of' the working class youth. It must become an instrument for the elimination of all exploitation and must proclaim the ultimate and fundamental aim of the economic struggle of the young workers: the complete transformation of the conditions of juvenile labor ,and its socialist reorganization . Therefore, the Young Communist International, the leader of the class conscious working class youth, has elaborated a new program of economic demands of the young workers which it herewith submits to the great mass of the oppressed and exploited young proletariat and to the entire working class. The basis and aim of our program is the SOCIALIST REORGANIZATION OF JUVENILE LABOR This means ABOLITION OF WAGE*SLAVERY FOR ALL YOUNG WORKERS UP TO 18 YEARS, WHO MUST BE CARED^^" FOR BY THE STATE AND TREATED FROM AN EDUCATIONAL POINT OF VIEW UNTIL THEY HAVE ATTAINED THIS AGE. Our partial demands for all young workers of both sexes up to 18 years (relentless opposition to all child labor is a matter of course) 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. 4Q J.
