Turns out all those ‘self-employed’ Cubans touted by ‘Cuba Experts’ are not so self employed
The devil is in the details indeed. And it is in those details where you will find the dirty work of Cuba's repressive apartheid dictatorship and their "Cuba Expert" minions here in the U.S.
Cuba's Not-So-Self Employed
According to the Castro regime's official statistics, over 407,600 Cubans have "terminated" their self-employment licenses since 2010.
Meanwhile, its tally of current self-employed licensees is 444,109.
(That's quite an attrition rate.)
Of these, the Castro regime boasts that 257,639 "self-employed" licensees are under the control of the Cuban Workers Federation (CTC), the state's official and only permitted labor union.
In other words, according to their own statistics, nearly 60% of Cuba's so-called self-employed licensees are officially affiliated to the Castro regime.
More "reform" you can't believe in.
