Transcript all means of transport, including the railroads, and in this transportation industry 1,000,000 are employed. The State Trusts— these are corporations organized by the State for the commercial and financial management of the various industries under its control—employ 1,300,000. And in non-trust State enterprises another half million workers. This brings the total of State employees up to 2,800,000. Private enterprises employ only 70,000.

During the period of "war communism" they were closely united to the apparatus and took upon themselves a number of government responsibilities. But under the New Economic Policy they have completely separated from the State machinery and have reorganized as independent bodies, having for their main functions the defense of the interests of the workers in the factories. Strikes were never prohibited by law under the Soviet Government, but during the period of the civil war the Trade Union Congress voluntarily decided to forego that method of struggle. Under the New Economic Policy, however, the right to strike has been reaffirmed. Strikes are discouraged and do not occur very often. Boards of conciliation, courts of arbitration and mutual agreements are first resorted to, and as a rule all controversies are settled by these means. I — 12 —
