    According to the Pew Hispanic Center, Cubans comprised 32% of eligible Hispanic voters, compared to 28% Puerto Ricans and 9% Mexicans. And the Puerto Rican population is growing rapidly: the policies put in place over the decades to make Puerto Rico "business friendly" have caused many younger residents to move to the States, and South Florida is where many of them have opted to reboot their lives. I knew the minimum wage in Puerto Rico was lower than the Federal, but I had no idea until I looked it up that it is currently $4.10!
