In the United States of America lies a large industrial city, beside one of the nation's largest slave labor camps. Near the center are community settlements, where the slaves live.

Each morning the people move, herd style, from their slave quarters into the industrial camps. Each one is at his station at 7:00 a.m. Here, they report to their masters for their day's duties, and here, at these stations, they remain chained until the time of service is over, usually at 5:00 p.m. They have no choice as to how many hours they must labor. Sometimes they are required to work overtime until the master tells them they may leave.

Each year they are told to take vacations—for how long and when they must return. They have little choice as to how much money they can make, and they are allowed little time for lunch or coffee breaks during slave laboring hours. They remain in their caves and drink beer because their master can punish then; with the "layoff" whip. It is said that even some good and faithful slaves felt this whip.

Day by day, year after year, they toil, until the master decides it's time for them to stop work. He then releases them to retirement camps, where they are forced to sit idle and wait for death. It is all well known that the old people who try to work are sometimes whipped with the "stop your pension check" whip.
