At this point, the workers generally shown themselves to be trusting people. Only 26% in principle, rejected the policy, leading to a deterioration in advance of the people. 60% have taken a policy "in case of any guarantee that life will be better then." What kind of guarantee! What could be more safeguards than Yeltsin - he promised to lay down on the rails. But it is important not so much erroneous assessment of the future, as at present inhibited reaction. Indeed, in the course of the reform was an unprecedented decline in the wage level in comparison with the Soviet system. In the USSR the worker received 1.6 ruble per hour. To meet the basic needs (food, housing, transport) was about the same as getting work in the West (US $ 8-10 per hour). Car video recorders and not up, but we have yet to take the point. An hour of labor in the Soviet factory man in 70 years received an average price of 9 loaves of bread or 16 liters of petrol AI-93 (in the 80s 8 liters of gasoline). Bread and energy - the absolute, universal life support equivalents. Today, working in the Russian Federation, on average receives about half a dollar per hour. It is now 2 loaves of bread, or 2 liters of gasoline. And the mass of the workers - not against this system! Novosibirsk - a city with one and a half millions of the most skilled workers and engineers - twice voted for Yeltsin.
