How were wages determind in the USSR? Did everyone receive equal pay or was pay based on what job you had or your party rank?

It is important to check both wages and prices.

Most of stuff that is super-expensive in West, was free in East.

It is better to have 200 roubles in USSR, than 20,000 dollars in USA.

I have USSR-era prices/wages table that proves my claim, but I won't bother posting it on Nazi forum like this. I am leaving.

You recieved pay depending about your Education and your importance to the country.

for example

Janitor- Very Low pay
Red Army Officer- Very high pay

Also, most of the stuff you needed was fre.

Here let me re-state my question in a more direct maner. Did people in the USSR receive equal pay? Did people in the USSR receive an equall number of coupons? Or did some get more of both, becuase of job function and or party rank.

Yeah, there's a thread about a Pac-Man style game and a thread asking about CCCP wages. This place has Hitler written all over it

Just so there is no misunderstanding....

I don't WANT Comrade Chernobog-13M to leave. No, I don't agree with everything he says... but he is a valued Comrade. I want him to stay and help us educate the Barbie and Ken crowd that he so detests... because if he does not, who will?

I have a picture for you Comrade Chernobog-13M.... you are 68. All of the adults around you are cheerleaders and rank Capitalists. In your old age, you realize that you COULD have helped prevent this.... when the going gets tough, Communists get tougher - they do not leave the city (and you know EXACTLY which city I am speaking of).
