A Workers' Inquiry

1691
"A Worker’s Inquiry is a list of questions Marx prepared in order to investigate the status of the French working class. The goal was to ask workers to describe, in as much detail as possible, their working and living conditions to provide socialists with “exact and positive knowledge” when advocating for improving conditions. Among the 100 questions are: What is your trade? Are you paid time or piece-rate? Whatever wages you get ... when is it paid to you? Are there in your workshop or trade any friendly societies to provide for accidents, sickness, death, temporary incapacity, old age, etc.? The cover for this pamphlet is designed by Ken Lawrence, a member of Facing Reality, who also wrote a short introduction to A Workers’ Inquiry." The Detroit Printing Co-op by Danielle Aubert
