Cuban regime prioritizes the manufacture of disposable diapers
With an average salary of only $20 a month and monthly food rations that barely last a week, the Cuban people must struggle on a daily basis to find enough food to feed themselves. Housing on the island is in shambles and those lucky enough to have a roof over their heads live in constant fear that roof will collapse and bury them underneath. Medicine and health care is available only for the elite members of the Castro regime and Cubans lucky enough to have U.S. dollars to pay for it; the rest must make do with squalid, unsanitary clinics, doctor shortages, and a bottle of aspirin is considered a miracle of God.
So what is the "government" of Cuba prioritizing for its citizens? Disposable diapers, of course...
Raúl Castro wants to manufacture disposable diapers in Cuba
Leader Raul Castro wants the construction of a disposable diaper factory to be a priority in their economic development plans for the country.
During a recent meeting of the Council of Ministers, Castro said that all the solutions needed for the Cuban economy and the society are in the hands of the Permanent Commission for Implementation of the reforms approved by the Sixth Congress of the Communist Party chaired by Marino Murrillo.
"We have to do it; I don't remember how much it costs, it's expensive (the materials), but we have to do it," said the leader.
Castro added: "Now, this is the manifestation of the revolution's social development, this is the positive aspect of the matter."
I swear, you really can't make this stuff up.
