Turkish Republic, which started its way with empire remnants from Ottomans, had managed working life, which is among primary necessities of social life, in accordance with its political-ideological goals. “Populism-Statism-Nationalism” principles of 6 Arrows were road map to be followed in determining social relations. Kemalist leadership, while aiming the country to reach at developed civilizations’ level by completing modernization process, was also wishing to minimize the intensity of class struggle during transition from Ottoman’s social structure divided into status groups to new world’s social structure organized as classes.
On the other hand, forming a domestic bourgeoisie in Western terms in order for Turkish Republic to attain economic independence and strengthening entrepreneurship in order to make this class grow were among goals to achieve. So 1930-1936 period is the time slice, when national bourgeoisie could not perform the awaited explosion and state executed “statism”, and “national economy” choices in order to establish economic independence’s foundations.
