La cola eterna

Un elemento de la vida en Chiapas que nunca puedo aceptar es ineficiencia, falta de logica y la ausencia de sentido común.

El gobierno del estado implementa multiples programas de subsidios y beneficios sociales para enfrentar la pobreza. Uno de los mas destacado es la ayuda por parte del programa Amanecer para gente de “tercer edad”. No es mi intención comentar sobre esta programa en general. La población con mas de 65 años de edad merece respeto y ayuda economica. Es la forma de pago que no es logico. Esta mañana fui a hablar con la gente esperando para recibir su ayuda. El video dice todo …..

But, for English speakers I will explain briefly anyway. The state government of Chiapas has started a  program to provide a small pension to all residents over 65 years old. They receive 50 dollars per month. This is certainly not a great deal, but could be a useful supplement for the poorest residents given that a kilo of the staple tortillas still costs less than a dollar. However in order to receive this they have to wait over five hours in the tropical sun. I am at least twenty years younger than most of those in the queue, but I would probably faint on my feet if I tried to last that long. There is no point to this torture, as there are many other options available to pay the money. The simplest would be to open the desks throughout the month instead of a single day. The best would be to pay the money into a bank account and provide a cash point card.
