MORÓN, Cuba, Nov. 11 (José Manuel Caraballo Barvo, APLA, www.cubanet.org) - José Antonio Vázquez, a graduate of the Hotel and Tourism School, says he’s been unemployed as a chef for two months because of his opposition to the government and the fact he wears a “Change” bracelet.

Vázquez said he’s been fired from several restaurant jobs and that authorities tried to incriminate him in an act of sabotage against the Florida restaurant in downtown Morón.

"I’m unemployed and the father two young boys,” he said. “My family survives thanks to help from my father who’s in the United States.”
