Unemployment stands at 14.1%, the highest rate for November since 2012

With a record increase in the number of employed people, the unemployment rate in Brazil stood at 14.1% in the quarter ended in November, according to data from the IBGE’s Continuous Pnad. The rate is slightly lower than in the quarter ended in August (14.4%), which serves as a basis for comparison. The IBGE considers, however, that the index has remained stable, as it is a very small variation. There are still 14 million Brazilians looking for a vacancy.
