Castro Kingdom hopes to sell slave laborers to elevator factory in Belarus

Cuban / Belarussian elevator at work

Cuban / Belarussian elevators: the envy of the world

As its agricultural production continues to nosedive, the Castro Kingdom is desperately seeking to keep itself afloat by selling the labor of its slaves to other nations.  Doctors to the third world.  Construction workers to Europe.  Laborers to India.  And so on.

Cubans labor for foreign firms.   The firms pay relatively high wages for the labor-- much higher than the going rate in Cuba (18 dollars a month), but also much lower than the going rate in the foreign partner's turf.  The Castro Kingdom pockets the wages.  The laborers get their paltry 18 dollars a month.

Here is yet another effort at creating one of these joint ventures, with one of the the worst dictatorships on earth: Belarus.

Many of these attempts end in failure.  Chances are this one will, too, since the goons and ass-kissers who run the Castro Kingdom are thoroughly inept.  The only thing they know how to do well is to announce lots of programs and then to keep quiet when they fail.

But.... if Belarus does succeed at creating an elevator factory in Cuba, God help the poor souls who will then ride in those death traps.

Cuba, Belarusian city of Mogilev eager to make lifts together

MOGILEV, 30 May (BelTA) – Cuba and the Belarusian city of Mogilev are interested in setting up an enterprise to make lifts together. The statement was made by Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Cuba to Belarus Alfredo Nieves Portuondo at the meeting with Chairman of the Mogilev City Executive Committee Vladimir Tsumarev on 30 May, BelTA has learned.

“We discovered Mogilev last year, however, there are certain arrangements already,” noted Alfredo Nieves Portuondo. “In particular, the possibility of setting up a joint venture to assemble lifts in Cuba has been discussed. Several Cuban companies are interested in cooperation with OAO Mogilevliftmash. The merchandise could be sold not only in Cuba but also on the market of Central and South America, Caribbean Sea countries”.

It is too early to talk about prospects of developing partnering relations between Mogilev and Cuba in the sphere of textile industry, the diplomat believes. “We know that Belarus has a well-developed textile industry, but we haven’t heard anything about Mogilev-based enterprises,” specified Alfredo Nieves Portuondo. “After visiting OAO Mogotex and Lenta we will send the information we have acquired to Cuba. Once the matter has been looked into by our specialists and businessmen, we will be able to make concrete decisions”. Yet the Ambassador remarked that Cuba is interested in buying Belarusian fabrics and ready-made textile products and in buying spare parts for previously purchased Belarusian buses and agricultural machines. Cuba is also interested in having Cubans trained at Mogilev universities.
