Robert Ley joined the Nazi party in the early 1920s and was a member of the Reichstag in the early 1930s (Robert Ley, Head of the German Labor Front). According to Monteath, he was rewarded for his leadership of the German Labour Front and the organisation’s ability to coordinate existing trade unions and keep German labour under Nazi control. He was the head of ‘Strength through Joy’ and played a large role in organizing leisure events, trips, and activities for the masses. In his view, unionism ended the class struggle in Germany and aided in the creation of the Volksgemeinschaft.
