"Life in Communist Cuba can be a struggle, even if you are at the top of your profession," reports CNN's Lucia Newman. "A doctor, a dancer or a waiter all earn about the same, roughly $23 dollars a month. Ninety-nine percent of Cubans don't even own a car. Although salaries are low, the state provides for all health care and education through college, plus some basic food rations. Abortions are free, too. By the time a woman is in her 30s, she's had an average of four abortions."
