Yes! The exporting of slave physicians has worked so well for the Castro Kingdom that they are now seeking to export other types of slaves.
You know the routine: send skilled professionals and laborers abroad, charge foreigners a discount rate for their work, pocket 95% of the fees those countries shell out for that work and pay the laborers about 5% of the take.
Factor this in, too: in the island formerly known as Cuba, all construction projects are for foreign tourists, and now Cuban architects, engineers, and construction workers will be shipped overseas. Which means, of course, that nothing at all is being built for Cubans.
Viva la Revolucion!
And you also know this, of course: this devilish deal is very attractive, especially to countries in Latrine America and Europe, where governments have no qualms about exploiting Cuban slave labor.
What these weasels don’t bother to check very carefully up front is the quality of the beasts of burden they are buying. In this case, hiring Cuban construction workers will most probably prove no different than hiring Cuban physicians. In other words, the weasels are courting disaster.
Buyer beware, even after you’ve sidestepped the ethical hurdle. The Castro Kingdom has mastered the art of wrapping its junk –as well as its lies and injustices — in attractive packages.
Cuba offering construction services at fair in Europe
Venturing into the European construction market, the Cuban construction ministry (MICONS) is offering services of its companies at a fair in Spain.
MICONS will be exhibiting at the Construmat 2013 fair May 21-24 in Barcelona, offering project management, technical assistance and contracting of skilled labor, such as engineers, technicians and specialized workers. The Cuban delegation will include executives of the Office of the Historian, which oversees the restoration of Old Havana, as well as the Company of Projects and Engineering Services, and PALCO Corporation.
The effort to open up the Spanish and European construction market follows the success Cuba’s healthcare and sports sectors have had with service exports, which became Cuba’s largest hard-currency generator a decade ago, surpassing tourism.
The ministry’s Project Division has 30 years experience with total and partial designs, particularly in restoration of historical buildings and tourism-related projects.
This is not the first time Cuba is exporting construction services. State company Quality Couriers International, which is not participating in the Barcelona fair, has provided turnkey projects in Vietnam, Venezuela, Brazil, Colombia, Libya, Angola and elsewhere.
