  1. In a socialist planned economy, unemployment is a vestige of obsolete industrial relations, a great evil.
    Socialism, as a transitional stage to communism, cannot allow the existence of unemployment, because preparing the basis for unlimited growth of productive forces (a condition for the transition to a just society), it uses all the human reserves for this.

    Everything for the good of man, everything in the name of man-that is the slogan of the Soviet government. Every citizen can and should bring benefits to society, realize their potential, everyone will find something to do, so unemployment is the enemy of a communist society. In addition, from a moral point of view, it is not acceptable to put up with the suffering of people experiencing the hardships of unemployment.
    Unemployment in the USSR was completely eliminated in 1936, 19 years after the Great October Revolution, 14 years after the end of the civil war, intervention, and general devastation. Before the counter-revolutionary coup called “Perestroika” in 1988-1991, people did not know unemployment, on the contrary, there were not enough workers, and the constant growth of the economy required new jobs. For this reason, population growth in the U.S.S.R. was a boon; the Soviet government aimed at a broad transformation of nature, the development of Siberia and the Far East – there was a lot of work to be done.

    It seems that quite recently, by historical standards, we had a fair society, the country was already entering the stage of communism, but everything was destroyed by the reborn bourgeoisie. With the transition to capitalism, the country was set back in development for many decades. The bourgeoisie does not need economic growth, it needs profit, so the Nouveau riche could not even maintain the achieved Soviet level. They destroyed not only the social base, but also destroyed more than 70 thousand (just think about it !!!) industries, depriving people of their jobs and livelihoods.

    Now the ideologues of liberalism tell us that unemployment is good for the economy. It is a blessing for the private owners, but it is suffering for the working people. Competition in the labor market benefits capital, but it also lowers the price of labor for employees. And to make semi-slave labor even more profitable, the ruling group in Russia began to import migrants. There is no such sveh – exploitation that migrants are subject to at any enterprise where Russian citizens work.

    Work has ceased to bring satisfaction from results, it has become forced and despised.

  2. The unemployment rate can be minimized, but it will not be possible to completely remove it (a feature of the economy and society as a whole).

    In a restrictive (command) economy, the level of employment of the population is as high as possible
