I am tired of having such a low standard of living!
Because of the famine, my family is always hungry.
Stalin took all of my land!!
Stalin is a terrible ruler! Its time for a new leader!!
HEY! I am taking you to a gulag for speaking out against Stalin
Although Stalin made many improvements in mining, transportation, and resources, all of the workers were not treated fairly. They were not allowed to go on strike, they had very low wages, and they had a low standard of living.
Joseph Stalin took all of the farmers' land, and combined it into collectives. This caused a terror famine, and people went hungry.
Many people were unhappy with the changes Stalin had made. However, it was against the law for them to speak out. If they were caught, they were put in gulags, systems of labor camps.
