Venezuela's government, led by President Nicolas Maduro, has raised the country's minimum wage six times in the last year. However, it also tells its people how much they must pay for basic foodstuffs -- an amount that is higher than most wages. Due to rampant hunger across the country, street protests occur frequently and are often met with deadly force. The government restricts the media and has taken CNN en Español off the air. A young anesthesiologist, Dr. Ricardo Rubio, says: "There is no precedent to the lack of medicine, the lack of medical supplies, the deterioration of the hospitals, the deterioration of the way they treat doctors." Meanwhile, Venezuela's government has repeatedly said its problems are being exaggerated by foreign media.
