There is a strong appeal to workers.
Telegram channel Basta! published an emotional letter from their reader.
"There is a phrase: labor ennobles a person. And this is true, but oddly enough, there are exceptions to the rule even here. The reality today is:
- You will not receive good salaries for your work, because now you are working!
- You will not drive brand new European cars from a car dealership, as workers in developed countries do, because now you are working.
- You will not relax 2 times a year at the seaside in Greece or Spain in four and five-star hotels, as your colleagues - workers of factories in Europe do, because now you are working.
- On Fridays and Saturdays, you will not relax in cafes and restaurants with your families and friends as European workers do, and your wives will cook dinner and family meals from the cheapest products, because now you are working.
- You won't tell your wife: "Honey, don't cook today! Let's go to a restaurant," because you are working now.
- You will not rest in the best sanatoriums in Belarus, but only in those where you get a 50% discount from the trade union, because now you work.
- You will not have savings in the bank of 100 thousand euros for retirement, taking into account a fully lived life without saving, as is the case with European workers, because now you are working.
- You will be glad to every 50 rubles of degrading bonus salary, because now you are working.
- You will go to stores and look not at the quality of food, but at their prices, which will not allow you to buy them, and inflation will make them more and more expensive, because now you work.
- You will go to work with your heads down and afraid to talk frankly on the phone, because now you are working.
- You will not be able to provide your sick relatives and the older generation with decent treatment and care, because you will not have the money for this, and the State doesn't have modern hospitals, and all because now you work.
- Your children will live all the same according to your scenario, and even worse, because now you are working.
- The law will not operate in the country, and the law and power will be in the hands of the bandits, because now you are working.
- All those killed and beaten for your own freedom have not yet been avenged, because now you are working.
- Noble and strong people risk their lives and well-being and to this day suffer from repression, because now you are working.
- You will not breathe free chest, because now you are working.
- You will think where to get money for a monument to deceased loved ones, because now you are working.
- Throughout your life, you will make one and only choice: buy or postpone, economize on your husband this season or on your wife, buy for a child or save money on medicine for parents, eat well or put off a whole year for at least some kind of vacation, because you are working now.
And no matter how you think and what you think - all this is the scenario of your life until the end of your days, if you work now. And if it seems to you that everything is normal, then this is an illusion, because you do not know what it means to live normally. You have never seen it and never felt it.
You see how many facts refute the wise proverb because you are now working. Every day of your work comes at a high price to the entire nation. You need to know when labor ennobles a person and when it makes him a slave and oppresses the country."
