The Younger Generation

Most of the youth in Cuba are not satisfied with government rations for the necessities of life. They want to wear fashionable clothes, shoes, and jewelry. They want to use real soap and shampoo and cologne.  Relatives in the United States visit from Miami and bring them as much as they can.

A lot of the younger generation don’t want to go to college and they don’t want to work for the government allotment of  20.00 CUC/ month. They hang out like youths everywhere. The motivated ones participate in the black market selling art, crafts, and homemade food items or selling services such as taxi driver or home fumigation.
