I think they said the initial cut was 500,000... they are saying that amount is the minimum.

My guess is that this is merely the beginning of a significant transformation which will continue to unfold piece by piece to avoid too much unemployment.

VERY interesting development nonetheless!

What surprises me is how little coverage this thing is getting given how monumental the situation is.

Cuba, one of the few remaining communist countries left in the world, may be in a full blown transformation to a capitalist system.

It's 360 to the current administration's agenda of growing the government to give people jobs.

Any bill that passes lately has a new board and agency to oversee it and disburse it.
