The infamous Cuban blogger Yoani Sánchez, was named recently Vice-President of a regional committee of the Inter-American Press Association (IAPA, funded by the CIA and a clear tool of support for tyrants and oligarchs everywhere in America - see notes below) and has been therefore assigned the extremely high salary of $6000 (~ €4800). While this salary would be very very good in wealthy and costly places like the USA or Europe, it is absolutely crazy for a Third World country with a socialist economy like Cuba, where almost all you need can be obtained at very low cost or simply gratis.
For example, with her new salary, Sánchez would be able to pay each month for 24,000 months of rent of a regular two rooms apartment in Havana. Alternatively she could use that money to buy 6000 new books that she would never read, 12,000 pizzas that her scrawny body would not be able to eat, 24,000 five-ball ice-cream cones, 60,000 kg. of chicken or pork meat, 4800 liters of gasoline... and of course unlimited healthcare attention or education because that is gratis in Cuba and that's what they really hate.
Interestingly she has not said a word about her new charge and salary in her blog, so dear of the mafioso power rings in Miami and Washington, in Madrid and Brussels.
You know what is really good about this? That she is now officially a spy and not anymore a "common" nagging girl who wanted to emigrate to Europe but found that nobody would paid her bills here, where she serves no purpose to the interests of imperialism. Instead they offered her a job in Havana... and a dream job it is.
She should have stayed in Europe and eat out of the trash bins, as so many, sadly, have to.
