Cuba is known for its spectacular beaches and warm and friendly people but the country faces significant problems with regard to its economy.
For years Cuban doctors earned low salaries, significantly lower than other countries in the region. Now the Cuban government has decided to hike the wages of doctors and nurses, in some cases by more than 100%
But you will be surprise what they will be earning, less than US $100 per month but still far above what the average Cuban earn per month. The average Cuban earns approximately US $20 per month. Today Cuba earns more the US$8 billion from payments made for the services of Cuban doctors in developing countries.
