Havana (Nov. 20)
The Jews of Cuba will be seriously affected if the Cuban Parliament passes a bill which would compel all employers in Cuba to employ on their staffs only native Cubans and naturalised Cubans in the proportion of seventy-five per cent. to twenty-five per cent. The project would require the employer to pay 30 dollars annually for each foreigner employed over the twenty-five per cent. quota.
Fully ninety per cent. of the employees in Jewish owned enterprises, such as the shoe industry and the laundry trade, are Jews and non-citizens.
