From what I heard when I was at university the U.S.S.R. provided quite specialised job centres to help people find a job that they would like. People were not forced to do jobs they did not want.

I never bothered to check this for myself though.

From what i am to understand, your job also depended on your party rank. high party rank meant that you could go to a univeristy and get a better job. low party rank meant a crappy job. no party rank meant digging ditches.

not all were digging ditches. basically what is meant by that, is that those with no party rank were given the low and for the most part non political jobs. those with no party rank were like blue collar workers.

it depended on your education. If you were smart you could get a good job.

But if you dropped out of high school then you got a poor job.

WHAAAT??? Do you mean that there are school children with Party rank? Stick this yankee agitprop in your ass.

IT WAS PARTY RANK THAT DEPENDED ON PROFESSION, NOT PROFESSION THAT DEPENDED ON PARTY RANK.

If you don't know anything about what Party is and how it works, better shut up, okay?
