Unemployment in Brazil drops to 9.1%

The unemployment rate in the country dropped to 9.1% between May and July. The index, which measures unemployment among Brazilians, was down 1.4% from the previous quarter and is the lowest since the three months ended in December 2015.

The percentage of employed citizens of working age reached 57%, a reduction of 1.1% compared to the quarter ended in April. Compared to the same gift in 2021, the drop is 4.1%.

The data are from the IBGE’s Continuous National Household Sample Survey (PNAD), which also shows that the usual real income reached R$ 2,693 in the period.

One of the activities that led to the fall in unemployment was “Trade, repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles”, with 692 thousand employees more than in the previous quarter (up 3.7%). The other was “Public administration, defense, social security, education, human health and social services”, with an increase of 648 thousand people (3.9%).

“These two activities were, in fact, highlights, but it is worth noting that no economic activity group showed a loss of occupation. In other words, all sectors added people to the job market”, said Beringuy.

House committee raises Simples Nacional ceilings

The Constitution and Justice Commission (CCJ) of the Chamber of Deputies yesterday, 31, approved the project that expands the income ranges of Simples Nacional. As a result, the billing limit for the Individual Microentrepreneur (MEI) category may rise from R$81,000 to R$144,913.41 per year.

The measure goes to the Plenary of the House before a new evaluation by the Federal Senate. The text had already been approved by the senators, but it will have to be appreciated again because changes were made.

“We have done nothing but bring justice, which has been delayed for years, to the segment that generates the most jobs in the country. Since the creation of Simples Nacional, there has never been an update of the framing limits by an official index. In the case of the project, we simply apply the IPCA, Brazil’s official inflation”, celebrated the rapporteur of the text, deputy Marco Bertaiolli.

The project also raises the revenue ceiling for micro-enterprises from R$360,000 to R$869,480.43; and from R$4.8 million to R$8,694,804.31 the limit for small companies.
