Summary of Interview 091205B with Halzanhüü
Some people didn’t like the creation of the collectives and some thought it was profitable and joined them. There were people who tended the negdel’s livestock, who received a salary, and became a member of the collective. Their standard of living standard went up.
In 1956-1962, 1963 a construction artel used to operate in the aimag. A wonderful work team set up a ger for me and they painted and repaired my furniture, thus making an ail for me. I worked for forty years and at that time, a lot of attention was paid to work quality. If you made good that were rejected, you had to pay for it. In the socialist period the darga taught people to labor and there were no unemployed people. The workers were taught all kinds of skills. A new worker was paid 75 tögrögs and first worked as an assistant for three months.
Democracy gave the livestock to the herders and the officials were given their apartments, so it was profitable. I gave my shares to the aimag broker’s firm. I heard the Ajnaigiin Bat-Erdene took all of the shares. In such a way there are many people in Ömnögovi who couldn’t get their share due to their ignorance.
