Here’s what a monthly pension check will buy you in Cuba: 1 stale baguette, 1 Pepsi, and 8 ounces of margarine

Socialist diet

Now, this is what you call a healthy meal. Wait, no, this isn’t a meal. This is all the food retired Cubans can buy with with their monthly pension check.

So, this is what an unhealthy starvation diet looks like. A little bit of bread, a little bit of margarine, and one Pepsi. 8 ounces of margarine (1 cup) contains 0.2g total carbs, 0.2g net carbs, 135.9g fat, 1.2g protein, and 1209 calories.

Socialism in action. Diversity, Inclusion, Equity. This diet is for ALL retired Cubans regardless of race, gender, or religion.

The misery to which the Castro dictatorship has subjected Cubans continues to be reflected in the daily life of the people, and an example of this is that a checkbook belonging to someone who invested his life “serving the revolution” is only enough to buy bread, butter and a soft drink.

This was evident in a post made by Lara Crofs in which she shows the prices of the three aforementioned products currently on the communist island.

In this sense, the Cuban indicated that a soft drink is around 160 Cuban pesos, a loaf of bread is worth 150 CUP while butter costs around 5.60 MLC, which when converted to CUP at the exchange rate found on the street (198) gives a result of 1108 CUP, so when adding the three products the total bill is 1418.80 CUP ($59 USD), which is equivalent to almost 100 percent. percent of the monthly pension check received by Cubans who spent their lives serving the regime.

“Taking accounts, how much does a snack cost in Cuba? Soft drink 160 cups. Loaf of bread 150 cups. Butter 5.60MLCx198cup(in exchange)= 1108 Cup. Total = 1418.80 cup. This is equivalent to almost 100% of the checkbook of a retired old man after working 65 years for the Cuban revolution,” the activist wrote on her social media.

It is important to remember that the minimum amount established for the pension in Cuba is 1,528 pesos $63 USD), which is a paltry salary for the elderly Cubans forgotten by the dictatorship, taking into account the high cost of living on the communist island.

  1. This is clearly a “diaspora” issue, not the responsibility of the “revolution.” For those with no “diaspora” connection, it’s simply the fault of the “blockade,” which is also not the responsibility of the “revolution.”
