RUMORS FOLLOW THE CASE OF THE POISONED FRITTERS By Tania Quintero, Cuba Free Press.

HAVANA - After the case of the poisoned fritters in the town of Manguito, there was a rumor that the Ministry of Labor had made a survey of self-employed labor. That was paralleled by the rumor that the government would take adverse measures against private food handlers.

The first rumor must have been true, since the government says self-employed labor is now performed by some 130,000 people in the nation. Of the total, about 44,000 are affiliated with the government's Cuba Central (Organization) of Workers.

Meanwhile, the government announced that "lack of discipline, economic crime, corruption, illegality, and the marketing of wrongly acquired products have been plaguing this employment modality and creating a deformed image of it, an image that is very different from the one that is truly desired."
