During Stalin’s regime, the working conditions of Soviet workers seemed to differ from those experienced in the previous administrations in the Soviet Union. Although all the systems exhibited a communist form of economy, where the government had centralized the economic activities of the country, Joseph Stalin focused on the crash-industrialization drive. In his rule, workers were had some of the rights they used to enjoy in the previous regimes. For instance, they lost the right to take part in the functioning of enterprises in the country; hence their working conditions deteriorated. The complaints about the poor working conditions were immense in the country under Stalin's regime.
