There is some unintentional humor in this article:

“While Chavez City residents don’t see themselves as beholden to the government, they aren’t exactly climbing into the middle class. Many say they love the city because it allowed them to give up the house cleaning or street vendor jobs they hated. The smooth roads and ample parking lots are empty, as few people can afford cars.

“I’m catching up on 25 years of rest,” said Yomilady Segovia, who dropped out of fourth grade to help support her family and spent the next two decades selling coffee and empanadas in a municipal slaughterhouse.

When she got to Chavez City, her favorite thing to do was look out the window at the rain.”

 

Sounds like a productive existence. Bernie Sanders must be jealous.
