Minister Says 10.8 Million Jobs Created in Brazil under Lula

SAO PAULO – Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s government will end 2010 with an accumulated 10.8 million regular jobs created since he took office in 2003, Labor Minister Carlos Lupi said.

In a statement in the online edition of the daily Folha de Sao Paulo, Lupi said that in 2010 the country will have 2 million new jobs for a total of 10.8 million since Lula’s Workers Party took power in 2003.

For Lupi, 2010 “will be the Lula government’s best year yet for jobs, since it is expected that 2 million will be created.”

The year 2009 is expected to end with 1.1 million new jobs, despite the 800,000 lost during the economic crisis, which began in the last quarter of 2008.

One of the pillars for providing new jobs will be the construction sector, particularly through the popular housing program Nuestra Casa, Nuestra Vida (Our House, Our Life).

Popular housing and infrastructure will receive 30 billion reais (roughly $17.1 billion) from the Growth Acceleration Plan, or PAC, launched by the government in 2008.
