Work Quotas and Wages Under Conditions of Modern Technology


  • D. Meerzon


New equipment and integrated mechanization and automation, altering as they do the character of work and its organization, require improved methods and procedures of wage payment. It is, therefore, highly important to examine the application of new wage systems in such industries as iron and steel, non-ferrous metals, chemicals, and others, where technological processes are continuous and automation is extensive.A number of heavy industries went over to the seven- or six-hour day and new wage systems between 1957 and 1959. Pursuant to a law passed by the Fifth Session of the USSR Supreme Soviet the transfer of all Soviet wage and salaried workers to shorter hours will be completed this year.
