RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The minimum wage proposed by the federal government for next year is R$1,039 (US$250).
The amount is included in the Budget Bill (PLOA) for 2020, which was sent on Friday, August 30th, for analysis by the National Congress, along with the text of the bill establishing the federal government's Multi-Year Plan (PPA) for the period of 2020 to 2023.
"This value is exactly that of 2019, corrected by the INPC. It is not our minimum wage policy. We have until the end of the year to establish our minimum wage policy . . .
