Transcript 48 DRAFT PROGRAMME OF Y.C.L terrible form. The type of the apprentice of the olden times, the member of the family of the mediaeval handicraft worker, in line for a master's job, has irrevocably vanished. Apprenticeship today is nothing but a screen for more intense exploitation of the Youth and is fast disappearing. Thanks to the development of industrial technique, the capitalists are able to draw masses of children and immature Youths as inexperienced workers into the process of production. Only a small upper strata of the proletariat is trained at the cost, and to the disadvantage, of the great majority. Capital exploits the small amount of defensive strength of the working class Youth, and squeezes special profits out of the cheaper and for the employer, more advantageous labour of the Youth. Long working hours, out of all proportion, which, in spite of the immature bodily development and weaker stamina of the Youth, and the necessity for their mental development, often exceed the working hours of the adult workers, wages disproportionately low in comparison with those of adult workers, although the work done is equal to theirs, night work, work in factories injurious to health, barbaric treatment at the hands of the employers, unemployment without support and its consequences (sinking into misery, prostitution, crime) —that is the lot of the Working Youth under the domination of capitalism. Conditions are specially bad in small industry, and in handicraft work which try to save themselves from the competition of large-scale industry by ruthless exploitation of the apprentices who are almost completely subjected to the whims of the employers and masters.
