In the late nineteenth – early twentieth century in Ukraine is rapidly developing industry, which leads to the formation
of the interlayer proletarians. The increase of the working class in the late nineteenth century leads to their
struggle for better conditions of their lives and work.
In the Soviet and modern Ukrainian historiography of this discipline unilaterally. The emphasis is on ruthless exploitation
of people and low wages. Social infrastructure is not considered.
The purpose of this article is to highlight the economic and social living conditions of the proletarians on the example
of Kharkov locomotive factory (hereafter KlF).
This enterprise since its establishment and until today remains one of the important enterprises of Ukraine (now it
is an Malysheva engineering factory). Its construction began in 1895, and in late 1897, the factory began to produce
The workers were divided into two categories: labourers and artisans. Besides, the factory employed students.
The workday was 10 hours. on the day. From specialty dependent wage worker. Among the artisans were the
highest paid shoppers in the forge (5 rubles 47 kopecks), and the least – sidelniki in copper smelting (80 kop.); among
laborers – the biggest payoff in instrumental (CPC 95), and lowest in blacksmithing (66 CPC); among his students was

Therefore, a disciplined work paid on his salary can support a family of four (he, his wife and two children).
Also in the historical literature it was noted that the workers lived in barracks in unsanitary conditions and the only
entertainment for them were the tavern and drunken fights. However, already from the beginning of construction of
the enterprise, his administration, and later the factory workers, the Kharkov intelligentsia cared about the level of cultural

when the plant operated dining, cooking, store and hospital.
Great attention to the administration and the employees paid on the education level of ordinary workers. In 1905
at the request of workers at plant a school was opened. Tuition was paid, however, the best students studied at the expense
of the plant.
Feeling the need in 1909 the factory workers on own funds (and funds from local merchants and entrepreneurs)
have built a work house (the prototype of the factory's Palace of culture).
However, despite the rosy picture, provozovny always tried to improve their living and working, referring to the
administration or raising riots.

certain extent depended on the personality: wanted or not wanted people to work well, to do their cultural and intellectual
growth, to fight for their rights and to improve the social situation.
