MARXISM A BUST… Cuba Lays Off Half a Million – Allows Private Enterprise

This will upset a whole lot of leftists.
Hollywood sure won’t like this news.

Commies and killers Fidel Castro and Che Guevara (Welt Online)

Let’s hope the Obama Administration is paying attention…
The Castro Regime announced it will fire at least half a million workers by the middle of next year. The murderous regime will also allow private enterprise.

Cuba says it will fire at least half a million state workers by mid-2011 and will free up private enterprise to help them find new work – radically remaking employment on the communist island.

The layoffs will start immediately and run through the first half of next year, according to an announcement Monday by the nearly 3 million-strong Cuban Workers Confederation – the only labor union the government tolerates.

To soften the blow, it said the government would authorize simultaneous increases in job opportunities in the non-state sector, allowing more Cubans to become self-employed, to form cooperatives run by employees rather than government bureaucrats and to increase private control of state land and infrastructure through long-term leases.
