Fight Outside Labor Hired by Jewish Colonists

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

What virtually amounts to a crusade against Jewish colonists hiring outside labor has been initiated by the Yiddish Communist daily, “Stern” of Charkoff.

N. Dolgi, former national minorities instructor and member of the Krivoy Rog Communist executive, asserts in the “Stern” that some Jewish colonists systematically hire labor at an average of forty kopeks daily and they even carry on trade in the nearby cities, citing cases in the Krivoy Rog district.

In an editorial, the paper demands an investigation, declaring: “We must show no pity to these people. Their land must be taken away without ceremony.”
