Brazil’s new $15 minimum wage law may affect the entertainment industry
Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff has announced a $15 per hour minimum wage for the rest of the year.
She says it will boost the sector, which employs more than 2.4 million people and is considered one of the country’s biggest employers.
She also says that the new minimum wage will encourage businesses to hire more workers and create more jobs.
But it won’t have a large impact on the entertainment sector, where the government has proposed a minimum wage of $15 for the entire year.
It’s not clear whether the government will follow through with the measure.
The industry says it supports the increase, but says the rate should be higher.
The National Union of the Entertainment Industry says the minimum wage is not needed for the industry to survive.
The sector is in recession and its revenues are dropping.
The U.S. and Europe have raised the minimum wages for most workers to $10 per hour.
Brazil is also in a recession, and is now looking to raise the minimum to $15.
Brazil’s labor ministry said it has requested the U.N. Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean to investigate the minimum for all sectors.
The country is also facing the possibility of having to raise its minimum wage from its current $15 to $17 per hour to meet its growing need for cheap labor.
