This cartoon was first published in The Costa Rica Star June 8, 2018.
If you’re a director of a public bank in Costa Rica, you will make between $16,000 to $30,000 a month. That’s American dollars, not colones.
The new president of Costa Rica, Carlos Alvarado, signed an order to reduce the salaries of the bank’s general managers. Then, the directors of Banco Popular (a public bank) ignored the order, hired a sub-general manager, and set his salary at over $22,000 a month. That must have angered the president as he responded by suspending three directors of Banco Popular. Good for him.
There’s a new cartoon for this week’s issue of The Star. Go check it out.
Watch me draw.
