And this day has come. Mass dismissal of civil servants began on the island of Freedom, the total number of which is 85 percent of the entire occupied population of the country. Recall that this is the largest labor reform in the island state should be completed, according to the plans of the country’s leadership, by April 2011. As a result of their jobs will lose about half a million Cuban citizens. As a kind of compensation, the authorities of Cuba promised to expand the possibilities for the development of private entrepreneurship, as well as to issue to small business about 250,000 licenses. To date, the largest dismissal has been a reduction in 23,000 people who, until recently, were employees of the public service of special security. This week, employees of the organization who are engaged in the preparation of qualified guards for security services received a dismissal message. As an alternative, they were offered to go to the police, prison warders or traffic inspectorate.
It is expected that mass reductions will affect all sectors of the economy without exception – from tourism to healthcare. In addition to mass layoffs, the government of the country plans to remove about half of athletes from state support, who are 28,000 on the island of Freedom today. However, most of those who fall under the reduction of civil servants do not think to lose heart. Moreover, many of them, without waiting for dismissal, leave jobs at their own free will. So, for example, an economist, who until recently, working in the Ministry of Health and receiving monthly wages of $ 20, recently informed his leadership that he was quitting. Now he will earn a living by private car.
