Brazilian government introduces work incentives for women and young people

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced new measures to boost job creation for women and young people. RedeTV!, a partner of the TV BRICS network, writes about this.

The new measures are part of the programme by the Ministry of Labour and Social Security. A total of R$ 165 billion will be allocated for its implementation.

At a ceremony at Palacio Planalto, Bolsonaro signed a decree that introduces a programme aimed at including and retaining women and young people in the labour market, as well as a decree that will create 100,000 new places for vocational skills training.

During the event, Labour and Social Security Minister José Carlos Oliveira spoke about the 2,7 million new jobs created last year.

"This is the highest figure in the last 10 years.  And in the first quarter of 2022 alone, there are already more than 600 thousand new jobs, and we hope that by the end of 2022 we will be able to exceed all expectations,” said Oliveira.

For women, the program includes measures to improve working capacity: more flexible working hours, training in strategic areas and support when returning from maternity leave. In addition to these actions, provision is made for early childhood support, with reimbursement of kindergarten costs or sums to cover the costs of pre-school education institutions.

The programme also aims to increase vocational training opportunities for young people. "100,000 new vacancies have been created for this age group and the National Hiring Incentive Project has been initiated, under which participating companies will get incentives to meet the regular training quota, with an estimated 250,000 adolescents and young adults hired already this year," the ministry said in a statement.
