Cuba ran up billions of dollars in debt for weapons, oil, machinery, food and other supplies. And when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, Cubas crippled economy imploded, bringing new hardships to a population that already had suffered decades under his mismanagement. Hundreds of thousands fled the society Castro created. The exodus began early with the powerful and affluent and continued with former comrades who found themselves in opposition to his rule. Next to go were the middle class and professionals and, finally, just about anyone who had the courage to grab a boat or cobble together a raft for the perilous crossing of the Florida Straits. Castro, although always controversial, once seemed to embody a fresh, youthful approach to his islands conflicts. Few moments in Cuban history rival the euphoria of Jan. 8, 1959, when the black-bearded comandante rode a tank into Havana with his swaggering rebel fighters, making their way through streets filled with cheering throngs. President Fulgencio Batista had fled a week earlier.

Why dont employers include the salary range in their job ads? Doing so would save them and us so much trouble! you can try hereThanks, Watch on Forbes: Dear Renaldo, You are right. The reason employers dont include pay ranges in their job ads is that they are hoping to find an amazing candidate for a low salary. If they posted the salary range in the job ad, theyd have to pay the person they hired at least the minimum of the salary range they had advertised. If they keep their salary range to themselves, they can use the question What were you earning at your last job? to peg the candidates salary range. Maybe theyll get lucky. Maybe their favorite candidate was earning less than they were thinking about paying someone, and they can save money! If this sounds heartless, cynical and unprofessional, it is. The practice of asking job-seekers what they were earning at their last job will become illegal in the state of Massachusetts beginning in 2018.
