Transcript rangement instituted in 1935, prices of commodities have become the same for everybody. MONTHLY SALARIES IN MOSCOW (ROUBLES) EXTREMES USUAL SALARY Worker from 80 to 400 r. 125 to 200 r. Clerk from 80 to 300 r. 130 to 225 r. House Servant from 50 to 60 r. evidently with food and lodging. "Middle" clerks and technicians from 300 to 800 roubles. Big "responsibles" and specialists, officials, professors, actors, writers, etc., from 1,500 to 10,000 and more. Quite a number of incomes range from 20,000 to 30,000 roubles a month.1 The salary schedule given above holds good for Communists as well as non-Communists. The relatively low maximum that the members of the C.P.S.U. were not supposed to pass during the first years of the Revolution was done away with a long time ago. Retirement Workers' pensions: from 25 to 80 roubles a month; no other privileges Pensions of widows of high functionaries and big specialists: from 250 to 1,000 roubles a month, besides free villas or apartments for lifetime use, scholarships for the children and sometimes for the grandchildren of the deceased. Considering the two tables, we see that there are marked differences within each of the given categories (from 70 r. to 400 r. in the case of the workers, for example). Between the categories (why not say classes?), the difference runs from the pensioned worker's 25 r. to the 10,000 r. and more received monthly by the privileged Soviet citizen during his activity. I think it is unnecessary to add that the average pension of 30 to 50 roubles (which in actual practice the worker has a hard time getting) is literally a "pension of poverty." This has been especially true since 1935, with the suppression of the workers' chance to get food at lower prices with the help of their food cards. Deductions from Wages From the salaries indicated above there are made a number of open and disguised deductions. These are really taxes laid directly on the pay envelope. They are: Wage tax (so named) : from 0.67% to 3.3% of the salary or wage, with exoneration for wages below 150 roubles. Cultural tax, for the upkeep of theatres, libraries, etc.: from 0.93% to 2.8% of the wage. Assessment for "cooperatives" (though there are no more cooperatives in Russia) : from 1 to 2% of the wage. !The good people who may be inclined, at first sight, to doubt these figures will understand a notice published in Izviestia of March 4, 1936, which reproduces a decree of the Council of People's Commissars establishing four prizes for the editing of an elementary history manual for use in the primary schools. The prizes are for a hundred thousand, seventy-five thousand, fifty thousand and twenty-five thousand roubles. 23
