Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a speech where the speaker encourages Ural workers to correctly cast his vote for his workers' party. The speaker discusses needs of the workers, touching upon unemployment and workers' wages. The speaker then talks about the death of Urals industry, followed by insights into the industrial expansion in the Urals. The speaker deals with the land-question in the Urals, for which a proper solution is enormously important to the workers' interests. Finally, the speaker talks about how to treat the enormous scale of unemployment in the Urals and the low wages. Re-equipping of Urals industry will mean rescuing the working class of the Urals from starvation-wages and their complete lack of faith in the future. According to the speaker, in voting for the Bolsheviks, let every Urals worker say that they have had enough of unemployment, enough of starvation-wages, and enough of rule by the factory-owners.

Keywords:industrial expansion; land-question; starvation-wages; unemployment; Urals industry; Urals workers
