Huge Factory to Aid Jews of Russian Small Towns

Download PDF for this date

The Soviet government has decided to build a large cotton factory in White Russia to employ 40,000. The decision aims to partly relieve unemployment of the Jews in the small towns and opens good prospects for non-qualified Jewish workers because only ten percent of the staff need be qualified. It is understood that the factory will produce 150,000 thousand roubles worth of goods annually.
