Many Castro apologists try to justify the poverty in Cuba saying that you can find the same poverty in many other countries. But what these people do not say is that those other countries didn’t have to suffer a so called ‘robolution’ that caused tens of thousands of deaths, millions of refugees, the loss of all liberties, and that all of that supposedly was needed in order to improve the life of ALL citizens.
After more than 56 years, there is much more poverty in Cuba than ever before.
Except for Castro and his gang who are the new millionaires, the 11 million Cubans have to suffer the exploitation of the omnipotent state, rationed food, lack of housing and the indignity of being second class citizens in their own country.
What the Castro brothers have established in Cuba is XXI Century Slavery. Workers are shipped all over the world, and if they refuse to go they cannot find work in Cuba because everyone works for the state.
Countries pay the Castro brothers for each doctor, engineer, or regular worker that is sent to do the work that locals refuse to do because it is in remote areas away from civilization, or in high crime areas. The countries pay the Castro brothers directly and they pay the slave workers a small percentage of what they receive.
All employment contracts are signed between the slave masters, the Castro brothers, and the countries where the slaves are going to work.
According to NationMaster, a website that compiles all kind of statistics around the world, Cubans have the lowest average disposable salary of the 176 countries listed. Lower than Nepal, Cambodia, Gambia, Samoa and 175 other countries!
And the worse part is that in 1958, before the Castro brothers took power, an industrial worker in Cuba received an average of $6 for each 8-hour workday. Only workers in 7 countries had a higher average than those in Cuba. And the average farm worker was getting $3 per 8-hour workday, the number six in the world!
But incredibly enough, there are some Latin American countries that want to copy this failed and obsolete system and there are even some ignorant Americans who claim that we should imitate some of the things that Castro has done!
