Campaign to Motivate Youth to Work

HAVANA TIMES, Jan. 14 – The Cuban Workers Federation (CTC) and the Young Communist League (UJC) are carrying out a joint strategy with which they aim to achieve a greater incorporation of young people into the work force, reported IPS. According to official reports, the unemployment rate currently stands at 1.6 per cent, but the authorities have expressed concern about the existence of 189,000 working-age persons who are not looking for a job and are not studying. Low salaries, family remittances and easier money hustling are some of the reasons.
