In brief: Labour minister hails formal job creation in Brazil

* Brazil’s labour & social security ministry has released the latest figures from the employment registry (Novo Caged) which show that a net 372,265 jobs were created in the formal sector in August. Brazil has recorded the net creation of over 2.2m formal jobs between January and August, the result of 13.08m new jobs being created and 10.88m redundancies. Labour Minister Onyx Lorenzoni has hailed these figures as confirmation that the measures adopted by the government to respond to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and spur economic recovery have borne fruit. Lorenzoni said that the objective is to close 2021 with approximately 2.5m new jobs in the formal sector.
