Socially necessary labor time is the basis for realizing the exchange value 
of the commodity under capitalism.  It is definitely not the basis for 
meeting either social needs or individual needs under socialism.

Your analysis of socially necessary labor time as applied to socialism 
absolutely creates wage differentials, class stratification and does so 
based on the development of the inanimate component, the means of 
production.  In essence your are simply reproducing, or mimicking capitalist 
production relations.
