A common argument against socialism is that with no competition, nobody will work well. One thing being unnoticed by these people from soviet society was the fact that there was socialist competition. The soviet worker would compete with their fellow worker to achieve the best results. Bigger operations of this sort were of a factory competing against another factory for the best fulfilment of their plans. A worker from the time described the contracts as including many aspects of good work, such as quantity and quality of work, punctuality, tidiness at work and fulfilling certain jobs in a certain amount of time. The trade unions of the time would organise these competitions and would get the factories to sign contracts to compete against each other, which were drawn up at general meetings of the workers. The press at the time would publish weekly accounts of how well the competitors were doing. The winners of these competitions would receive banners and prizes. Whilst this was happening, groups inside the factories would compete against each other and the factory press would report on it and the winner would be rewarded. Socialist competition would be regarded as very different to capitalist competition. In capitalist competition, the losing factory would be put out of business or the losing worker would be out of a job, but in socialist competition, the best workers from the winning factory are sent to the worser ones, and the best workers would help those who weren’t as good in the factory. This would help raise their production, and would ensure all workers would benefit, as the loser becomes a better worker, from help from their better. Due to this, the general production of many factories became high, whilst formerly being low producing. During this system, some groups of workers became known as “shock-brigades,” or “shock-workers,” who were known for getting outstanding results. In the late 1930’s, a new form of the shock-work movement happened, named “Stakhanovism.” Stakhanov was a coal miner reorganised the work of his group in his pit and increased output massively.
