Employment in Brazilian Industry Falls Slightly

The employment rate in the Brazilian industry increased 2.8% in February, in comparison to February last year. It was the 12th consecutive positive rate.

However, in relation to January, there was a 0.1% decrease, as was disclosed by the Brazilian Institute for Geography and Statistics (IBGE) this Friday, April 15.


Still comparing to February 2004, the result, according to the IBGE was influenced by the admissions verified in 11 of the 14 places researched and in 13 of 18 segments evaluated.


The states of São Paulo (3%) and Minas Gerais (4.9%), both in the southeastern region of Brazil, were the ones responsible for the main positive impacts.


In the São Paulo industry, the sectors of machinery and equipments (13.5%) and means of transportation (15.2%) were the highlights.


In the state of Minas Gerais, on the other hand, 15 segments increased their employment rate, where the most expressive ones were metal products (33.4%) and electronic materials and communications equipments (17.0%).


The main negative pressures came from the industries in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul (-2.7%), due to significant drop in the shoe and leather sectors (-15.0%), and Pernambuco (-2.5%), state in the northeast of Brazil, due to the employment reduction in the foods and beverages segment (-12.7%).


In relation to the payroll in the industrial sector, all February indicators show positive rates in their main comparisons. In relation to January, the increase was of 0.7%, and to February 2004, there was an increase in 2.1%. In the first two months the increase was of 3.1% and in the last 12 months accumulated value, the figure increased in 8.6%.


The number of hours paid to workers increased in 1.4% in February in comparison to January, and in relation to February 2004 the increase was of 1.8%, due to, mainly, the increase in 11 of the 14 places, and in 9 of the 18 segments researched.
