Transcript ... .— .IM workers and apprentices receive, at best, much lower unemployment doles than the adult workers, and in most cases none at all. The young workers, however, must not only sustain life just as the adult workers must, but they are exposed much more to the dangers of misery and often lose the possibility of learning a trade. From these facts results the imperative necessity for the demands of the Y.C.I, for equal unemployment doles for young and adult workers and for the establishment of training shops for the former. The six hour day for young workers was also a demand of the Stuttgart program and, under the pressure of the young workers, even the antagonist Internationals of Youth had to include this demand in their programs.

Although this demand can be realized only under the rule of the working class, it must, nevertheless, be raised even today. The basis of this education must be the apprentices' department RvT^oliHn^'J A- ^^P^ted by the worbhop schools. By the abolition of individual indentures and through strict control by the organizations of the working class, apprenticeship must be wrested from the con hoi of capital and regulated by the elective agreements of the trade unions. The exploitation of juvenile labor in apprenticeship, the sweating of apprentices, the claim oHhe r ghte of the employer, must be ruthlessly fought, and the apprentice who per- 52
