Panhandlers: Cuba’s evolving class

Culturally there is nothing more shameful to a Cuban than to publicly beg for a handout. Nevertheless, Cubans are doing just that to survive in the communist paradise.

The coin phrase:
in Cuba, it's far more lucrative to beg from tourists than to work full-time.
Of course, Cuba has 100% employment, and the government will deny that there are panhandlers living off of tourists and making more money than their government jobs or pensions. Just go ask the dying billionaire (who never begged for his money...but stold it), if there is poverty in Cuba.
