Transcript forms the labor cf a worker must have the status and the rights of a worker. If, for purposes of exploitation, the training of apprentices in industrial enterprises is entrusted to a worker in the general shop or takes place in piece work squads, this state of affairs must be radically changed. Special apprentices' departments equipped with all modern conveniences for training must be established in all factories and must provide the principal part of education. Under capitalism these apprentices' departments must be strictly controlled by the working class in order to prevent the numerous abuses by the capitalists. The small medieval workshop, whose hour of doom has struck, cannot be the sole place of modern technical education, for today the chief object is to train useful workers for industry. The establishment of collective training shops for a number of home and petty industries in which apprentices devote part of their time to technical education is a necessity, as long as the apprenticeship system continues to exist in handicraft. The form of these depends upon the practical possibilities: either apprentices' departments in great industrial enterprises or practice in continuation schools. Under the slogan of socialist reorganization of juvenile labor the Young Communist International demands the education of all young workers up to 18 years. But this extensive education which can only be realized in a socialist society, has nothing whatsoever to do with the technical training under a specialized capitalist system. For every apprenticeship, lasting longer than two years, capitalist greed it the only motive. Hence, the Y.C.L, now as before, demands of the capitalist system the old Stuttgart demand: A two years maximum for all apprentices—which is today more justified than ever since the division and specialization of labor has advanced considerably in the course of the fifteen years since the Stuttgart congress. (5) What is the essence of our partial demands and their relation to our revolutionary struggle? Above all they can be judged only as part of the whole, of our entire militant activities, and of which they constitute an inseparable part. Hence, if we formulate a program of partial demands, we do so with a view to our ultimate goal: the proletarian revolution and the establishment of a socialist society. All our propaganda and all our work is governed by the knowledge that capitalism is incapable of granting a decided itn- 53
