Cuban People will be layed off and Have to learn to Fend for Themselves
Monday's announcement that the Cuban government plans to lay off 500,000 workers -- 10 percent of its workforce -- is not so much a step toward political reform but a fight for survival, El Nuevo Herald columnist Carlos Alberto Montaner said. It's an assault on Fidel, who in 1968 closed small and medium-sized businesses in a big step toward central control of the economy.
Montaner offered this analysis at a luncheon address to the region's political and business leaders at the end of the two-day conference at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables. ``We are in the first phase of the de-Fidelization of the country, without even waiting for the physical disappearance of the maximum leader,'' Montaner said.
