730Greatest labourer of all timeAlexei Stakhanov102 tonne(s) (metric ton)Soviet UnionBased on historical research, there are two contenders for this title. The most celebrated is Alexei Stakhanov, a Ukrainian miner who claimed in August 1935 to have hewn 102 tons of coal during a six-hour night shift, staking a claim for the Soviet Union.For the USA the contender is Henry Noll, a Pennsylvanian steel worker who every day for weeks at a time in the winter of 1899, lifted and loaded 45 tons of pig iron on to railway trucks. Obviously a subjective record, these facts stem from Richard Donkin's book "From Blood Sweat and Tears, The Evolution of Work", published by Texere, a section of which was featured in the Financial Times (13 May 2001) and are for GWR reference.
