Washington tells Puerto Rico: Bleed workers dry (Washington le dice a Puerto Rico: Exploten los trabajadores)

the junta demands “comprehensive labor and welfare reform,” including reducing or eliminating severance pay, paid vacations, pensions and “non-essential” services, as well as cutting the welfare rolls. Education and health care “two of the largest areas of expenditure,” Carrión added, must be “reduced substantially” and tuition increased.

He also demanded “energy reform” (by privatization) to lower electricity costs.
