Current events – After attending a breakfast at the Supreme Court of Justice (STJ) in Brasilia on Wednesday, elected President Jair Bolsonaro told reporters that the Labor Ministry, created 88 years ago, should be embedded in a ministry without but inform who.
Bolsonaro's statement was only received by the workers' representatives. CUT chairman Vagner Freitas has released social videos on videos that criticize the damage that will come with this measure.
"What does this mean for your interest, worker and worker?" Ask Freitas. "This means that he will withdraw all remaining rights that have not been withdrawn from Temer, which means that he has no respect for the worker or work, that means we will have no place to discuss in this new government the assessment of the minimum wage We will have no one to talk about retirement maintenance, we will not have anyone to talk to in this new government guarantee fund, your vacation, their rights, "he said.
"We will not allow this, you are not alone, we are here to defend you, to unite with the unions, to defend your rights." Mr. Temer has reformed the labor force, it is very serious. has respect for the world of work, for his work, for you who is working, and when he closes the Ministry of Labor makes it clear why he does not move in ministries that deal with businessmen, "he criticized.
"It is absurd, it is disrespectful of the working worker who has voted for him for the most part and now has the payment to put an end to the ministry, which means that he will eliminate the rights that were contained in the negotiations that We can only fight if we can guarantee our rights and only the fight can guarantee that we have new achievements, we have CUT, we count on the unions and we will fight. "
From a historical point of view, the Ministry of Labor played different roles, depending on the government in question. During the governments of Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and Dilma Rousseff, he has always been under the command of trade union representatives and played a decisive role in formulating income distribution policies, job creation, professional qualifications and supervision.
The agency was one of the creators of the slave labor mobiles, still under the Fernando Henrique government in 1995, whose activity has intensified since the last decade.
Since the coup d'état of 2016, the paste has lost relevance and has come to develop portfolios by understanding the more flexible slaves' work concept. Still under the government of Temer, Rep. Cristiane Brasil, daughter of former deputy Roberto Jefferson, was nominated for the ministry. Cristian has in the curriculum the practice of irregularities and violation of labor rights.
Bolsonaro's signaling follows the process of dismantling labor regulation and the role of the state as a conflict mediator and a policy maker to promote growth by reducing inequalities.
