: Best you could hope for is that they spend a few hours sweeping up a week, maybe a week per month, any more and you'll start to compromise their skill and you know it. And that ignores the probability that they may feel as if they deserve more - which no revolutionary party can overcome 'just like that'.

Interesting. A week per month works out to about 1/4 of all productive time. i suggested even less, one day a week as I recall. Interesting that even an avowed capitalist can agree with a socialist on some terms. But don't hold your breath for either the hardline capitalists or the hardline Leninists to see this as anything less than a dodge. Remember what happened when I suggested one day a week of scommunity labor to Barry?
