The President of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro (without a party), announced on Thursday that the value of the monthly allowance to be paid to workers autonomous and informal during the coronavirus pandemic should be R $ 600.
“It’s already at R $ 500, maybe even up to R $ 600. I talked to Paulo Guedes yesterday. He is coming to live in Braslia, because the hotel he was in has closed. I make no decision without speaking to him. I am not making any decisions without speaking to the respective minister, ”Bolsonaro said at a news conference this Thursday in Braslia.
The amount of aid initially proposed by the government would be R $ 200, which was criticized by the president of the Chamber, Rodrigo Maia (Dem). For Maia, the aid should be at least R $ 500.
