5% More Jobless in Brazil

Brazil’s unemployment rate went up from 10.2% in January to 10.6% in February, the same rate registered last November. This result, however, is 1.4% down when compared to February 2004, when unemployment reached 12% of the economically active population.

The numbers announced by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) indicate that the population without regular jobs increased 5% from January to February.


There were 2.3 million unemployed individuals in the metropolitan areas of Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Recife, Salvador, Belo Horizonte, and Porto Alegre.


In February, average income was US$ 340,59 (932,90 reais), 1% higher than January’s, and 2.6% higher than that of February of last year.


The number of workers with formal jobs rose 1.5% from January to February, and 5.9% when compared to the same period of last year.

    Invest is computer education for the poor areas of Brazil, this should help to increase Brazil’s impolyment level in the long run.

    The majority of billionaires today can attribute their vast wealth to computers and technology, and as the old saying goes,” if you can’t beat, them join them”.

    I mentioned the poorer areas of brazil because the people living in these areas will likely be the people who will work the hardest to get the furthest (in theory). In fact, I cannot understand why more of the worlds poorer countries have not invested greater resoures into educateing their citizen( young people) in regard to computers and technology, I mean, they are the future (pun” intended”), this seems really obvious to me, but the only third world countries to really take this idea seriously have been India and China,and both of these countries have benifited substantually; especially China.

    P.S. I hope you Brazilians keep on producing women such Adriana Lima, because when I get older I’ll be coming to Brazil to check.(ha ha)
