Brazil Creates 1.95 Million Jobs in First 8 Months of 2010

If you doubted the ability of Brazil to hit Labour Minister, Carlos Lupi's ambitious job creation targets, it is perhaps time to change your opinion. In the first 8 months of 2010 alone, Brazil has created 1.95 million jobs, on target for the 2.5 million jobs to be created in 2010.

In addition to these excellent results the rate of unemployment is also falling. Brazil reported today that unemployment has hit its lowest ever rate of 6.7%, down from 6.9% in July. Unemployment in Brazil has been dropping since August 2009 when it was at its highest - 8.1 percent.
