Brazil Will Get 1 Million New Jobs This Year and 5% Growth the Next, Says Lula

    Brazilian workers

    Brazilian workers Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva announced that Brazil will end 2009 with a million new formal jobs and the economy will expand 5% in the coming year. Speaking during his weekly radio program "Breakfast with the President", Lula announced that 252.000 jobs had been created in September which means 2009 will end "with a million new formal jobs."

    "It's extraordinary and makes me very happy; I'm very optimistic about 2010 because we are anticipating growth of 5% and that will again help generate jobs in an extraordinary way," he added.

    Lula recalled that he had anticipated a quick end to the recession which in spite of the global crisis has seen Brazil create a record number of new jobs. "September has seen the highest number of formal jobs so far this year and it is the highest since September a year ago".

    The steady increase in the number of jobs during the last eight months has helped Brazil reach the 800.000 new formal jobs milestone, which was the number lost between November last year and January 2009 as a direct consequence of the global turndown.

    According to the government the fact that Brazil will end the year with a million new formal jobs is evidence the country has managed to overcome the world crisis, even when that number is below that of 2008 (1.45 million) and of 2007 (1.61 million jobs).

    "Brazil is ready to begin growing again, to generate new jobs and to distribute income." said Lula.

    "I'm going to dedicate the year and three months left of my government to conclude things we are doing, to improve that which is showing defects and leave Brazil even more prepared for whoever follows me as president," he concluded.

      [quote]Socialist governments are suppose to leave their countries in a chaotic and bankrupt state. [/quote]

      To prevent this, the “socialists” have to create dynasties of their own and leave the country in the capable of hands of their hand picked successors.

      [quote]You legacy as a “Socialist” will be ruined because you left Brasil in better economic health than when you arrived. [/quote]

      To ensure continuing economic prosperity and preserve your legacy as a “socialist”, we urge you to remain in power eternally.

      brazil should call its illegals home
      perhaps little lula will call his fellow citizens who are illegally in the u.s.a.to return to brazil and get a job pay taxes and contribute to their homeland.. most americans are fed up with illegals in the u.s. and want them arrested , detained, and immediately deported,,,, permanently….brazil is a high violater of u.s. immigration laws….

      “I’m going to dedicate the year and three months left of my government to conclude things we are doing, to improve that which is showing defects and leave Brazil even more prepared for whoever follows me as president,” he concluded.

      Do not do this. You will be a traitor to the “Socialist” cause. Socialist governments are suppose to leave their countries in a chaotic and bankrupt state. This will not be good for THE UNEDUCATED WHO DID NOT COME TO STAY. You legacy as a “Socialist” will be ruined because you left Brasil in better economic health than when you arrived.
