Hello everybody, Vancry here.
Yesterday, 1st of August, the American Dollar was worth exactly 12.197,74 bolívares (which is Venezuela's currency). Today, 2nd of August, came up to 14.760,89 bolívares.
Now, the Venezuelan minimum salary rose to 250k bolívares in total. Taking that to a count, the average working-class in Venezuela makes up to 17 bucks a month, at max. With that salary nobody could rent a room or an appartment to live -and that's without counting food and services-.
And, let's say you can pay the rent, buy food and pay your fees because you have the money. If you want food, you have to look all over the city to get what you need. Medical suplies? Most of them are scarce. Your car is failing? No spare parts for you because they are also scarce. And if you do find what you need is expensive as fuck. But that isn't really news to Venezuelans.
There are rumors that the American Dollar is going to be valued in way more than 25.000 bolívares at the end of the year or in a couple months... we don't know yet.
I needed to vent a little. This fills me with desesperation really.
What pisses me off the most is, even if we do manage to make our communist president quit and leave, we would have to wait for many years before the economy in our country gets better... but at least there's the hope that it will be better. We just have to wait.
Thanks for your time! Upvote, comment and resteem if you liked this post, it would help me out a lot.
