Nationwide Strike Threatens To Paralyse Brazil As President May Weaken Labour Laws


Brazil President Michel Temer

Brazilian unions called nationwide strikes today to protest President Michel Temer's efforts to reduce social security benefits and weaken labor laws, with disruption expected to road and rail transport, factories and schools. Many workers were expected to heed the strike call, due in part to anger about reforms that will force many Brazilians to work for years longer before drawing a pension, but also because the strike will extend a holiday weekend ahead of Labor Day on Monday.

If successful, the protest would mark Brazil's first general strike in more than two decades.
