IN CUBA, THE MAJORITY OF INDEPENDENT WORKERS AREN’T BUSINESS OWNERS

In Cuba, women represent almost a third of the wage-earning population, in both the state and private sector. Before 2010, over 90% of women used to work in the state sector. Later, many also moved to the private sector out of their own choice and because the government suggested the need to reduce the state payroll.

This post might seem out-dated, but seven days without electricity and sludge everywhere is a trauma for anyone. I never imagined that Hurricane Irma would be one of the triggers of my home arrest.

HAVANA 2018 ART BIENNIAL POSTPONED UNTIL 2019 AFTER DAMAGE FROM HURRICANE IRMA

These photos show the landscape in Cojimar which this hurricane left in its wake on Sunday morning. (123 photos)

AS CUBA RECOVERS FROM IRMA: NEEDS & OPPORTUNISM
