Cubans are no longer limited to wages

April 11 2008

In Cuba, easing restrictions on wages - such an order signed by the president "islands of freedom" Raul Castro. This innovation is aimed at stimulating economic activity and increase productivity. Communist model of development of Cuban society that order is not disturbed. Now the average salary in Cuba is about 350 pesos a month ($ 15).

The document says that the restrictions are removed, especially for civil servants, whose share in Cuba is 90 percent of the workforce. The comments of Cuba state television reported that the main cause of low productivity in the country is the lack of motivation of workers through paycheck.

Economic commentator Ariel Terreyro Cuban television said that low wages give rise to low productivity, and that in turn does not give rise to national economy, creating a vicious circle. In this case, according to Cuban government, economic liberalization will provide impetus for its development.

Moreover, according to Terreyro, the new resolution does not contradict the government communist principle "to each according to his needs, from each according to his abilities", reported Reuters.
