Salaries increase in Cuba to 87 dollars the minimum and 396 the maximum salary


A teacher, a journalist, a circus trainer and a resident doctor will have the same salary in #Cuba, according to the salary reform that the government will put into effect on #January 1.

A broad economic reform will quintuple the minimum wage to 2,100 #Cuban pesos ($ 87) and include a pronounced price increase, to accompany the unification of its two currencies from 2021, a unique system that prevailed in #Cuba for 26 years.

The measure establishes 32 salary scales according to the type of work or professional activity, and sets an income cap of 9,510 #Cuban pesos (396 dollars).

#In the 77 pages of resolutions of the #Ministry of #Labor published in the official #Gazette, the salaries that #President #Miguel Díaz-Canel will receive and the first secretary of the ruling #Communist #Party (PCC, the only one), #Raúl #Castro, are not specified.

#Neither are details of the salaries that the members of the #Revolutionary #Armed #Forces (FAR) and the #Ministry of the #Interior will receive, which have never been public on the island.

#But among the highest paid mentioned are the country’s governors who will take around 9,010 #Cuban pesos ($ 375) in their wallets, $ 183 more than a computer engineer or $ 123 more than the economic director of a state company.

#In the #Cuban #Public #Health #System, the bastion of the revolution, a resident doctor will receive a salary of 5,060 #Cuban pesos (210 dollars), similar to that of a journalist, a school teacher or a circus trainer. A vice consul will earn $ 20 more.

#In the case of athletes, many of them prominent figures, they will have a base salary according to their results. #Thus, an #Olympic medalist will receive 5,590 #Cuban pesos (232 dollars) and a world medalist 4,845 (203 dollars). A member of the baseball ‘#Team #Cuba’ will earn 3,725 pesos ($ 155) a month.

47.65% of the more than three million #Cubans who work for the #State will have “incomes much lower than the estimated average salary of 3,838 #Cuban pesos ($ 159),” according to the #Cuban economist #Pedro #Monreal on #Twitter.

The authorities have indicated that the reform seeks to stimulate the incorporation to employment, the promotion of management positions and solve the problem of the inverted salary pyramid at once, that is, that those who have professions or positions with a higher degree of complexity earn more.
