I'm sure that not all the people fired by Lt. Col. Hugo Chavez were
labourers. I think Michael L. suggested that most however were
technicians. Despite the good fortune of strong oil prices for this
rentier state, even the official unemployment rate had increased
under the Lt.Col's rule--electorally maintained, to be sure, but then
so was the rule of Fujimori and Menem.
