Strict supervision of apprenticeship by the organs of the working class (trade unions, shop councils). Labor organizations and their representatives to have a voice in the supervision of the training shops and trade schools. Apprentices (pupils) to elect councils for the same purpose.

With regard to the present shameful wage system, the fact must be mentioned, that in most countries unemployed young 51
