COMPARISONS OF LABOR PRODUCTIVITY ON THE RAILROADS OF THE U.S.S.R. AND U.S.A.
A considerable number of comparisons are put forth about labor productivity between the two countries. In the U.S.S.R., productivity of railroads is measured by tariff-ton-kilometers, while in the U.S.A., by ton kilometers, by measuring actual route miles traveled. Therefore, it would be correct to compare ton-kilometers of the U.S.A. with actual net ton-kilometers of U.S.S.R. railroads. On the railroads of the U.S.S.R., work output is expressed in ton-kilometers per employee connected with operations--there is no comparable index calculated in the U.S.A. On the basis of calculations, the level of work output on the U.S.S.R. railroads is about 25 percent lower than in the U.S. Comparison between specific groups of employees in the U.S. and U.S.S.R. is included.
