Members of the federal government’s economic team indicate that the minimum wage paid on January 1, 2022 in Brazil will be R $ 1,212. The new projection is higher than the value previously proposed by the government to Congress and almost the same level suggested by the Budget Committee. To make the recalculation, the government used the forecast of a 10.02% increase in the National Consumer Price Index (INPC) in 2021. In last year’s readjustment, the value was lower. to inflation. An interim measure (MP) indicating the new value of the minimum wage in 2022 is expected to be released on Friday (31).
