Venezuelan Government: You Are To Leave Your Jobs For 60 Days To Work In the Fields

We all know that Venezuelan socialism has been a total disaster. People were reportedly eating dogs, cats, and birds for sustenance. Crime was spiking. Inflation is out of control—and there is what could only be described as gladiatorial battles to get the most basic supplies at the supermarkets. Energy shortages have led to rolling blackouts. Toilet paper is now a luxury item. Access to medicine has been a nightmare, with the country’s entire hospital system operating in deplorable conditions. It’s so bad that some places don’t have gloves or soap. Of course, many Venezuelans have resorted to looting to survive.
As for food, hunger has gripped the nation, with shocking footage of people eating from the trash. President Nicolas Maduro continues to be laser-focused on continuing the socialist agenda started by his predecessor, the late Hugo Chavez. Maduro has sought to blame the U.S. and the leading political opposition for his economic woes, while the country languishes to recover. Now, to help with food production, the government has decreed that Venezuelans will be removed from their daily jobs for a period of 60 days to work in the fields (via CNBC):
