...Instead, FEMA has said that going forward, it will cover 90 percent of those costs, while Puerto Rico's government will be responsible for the remaining 10 percent. FEMA estimates that share could cost the island's government about $100 million.

Wonder is this low unemployment rate of 9.1% could have anything to do with a 5th of their population leaving the island after Maria, most not moving back.

And this does not even show other countries that they migrated to. DR received a few to go along with the Venezuelans.

Plus I wonder where/how the PR government is going to come up with the 100 million for their share. As the country is BROKE.
