Industrialisation was creating even more towns.Stalin then raised revenue to fund industrial revolution and feed workers in town. Stalin continued to force collectivization and continued to seize grain; resulting in a rise in grain collection from 10.8 million tons in 1928-9 to 22.8 million tons in 1931.This improve the standards of living in the towns. By 1941 almost all agricultural land was organized into collectives. The system of differentiation was introduced whereby people with special skills were given rewards and benefits in form of housing.Therefore,this shows how Stalin's rule benefit the USSR.This source also shows that the shortage of workers was addressed by encouraging women into work so to increase the industrial workforce.The plan was also to produce consumer goods such as radios and bicycles to raise the quality of life for the Russian people Nevertheless,there were also economic improvement.Rationing came to an end and free education and medicine were made available to more people which improve the environment for people.
