Well in jobs like that, I can see your point. Maybe you can work "longer" for more pay.

How do you compute the value of a person's work in a capitalist system to guage how much to pay them per hour?

What about the value of the machines used on the line? Your socialism is going to require people making price decisions and what system is going to be used to select those people? Socialism requires too much MAGIC.

Not at all (that last sentence is a rather broad accusation, there are many different types of socialism, not just mine). In a Socialist-Syndicalist system, price decisions are made pretty much the same way they are now. The only difference is, the price is determined by each company with coucil decision instead of executive decision. The people are trained to make price decisions with job training. That's why I think making accounting classes mandatory is a good idea.
