Get to work!

Cuba’s labor minister traveled to Granma to issue a call for increased labor discipline. A study in that province uncovered absenteeism, both authorized and not, among workers and supervisors.

Nowhere in the coverage did I see mention of the labor ministry’s plan to create a new salary policy. The goal was to link pay to output, and to “guarantee” that workers “may live from their work.” The policy was to have been delivered last June.

Also on the labor front, the Juventud Rebelde article on youth unemployment (discussed here a few days ago) is available in English, here.
