In 2022, the national minimum wage in Brazil remained fixed at €192.1 per month, that is 2,305 euros per year, taking into account 12 payments per year.

If we look at the minimum salary in Brazilian reals, which is the official currency in Brazil, we can see that, this year, it was 1,212 Brazilian reals and accordingly, the national minimum wage has been raised 112 Brazilian reals per month from the previous year, 10.18%. This increase is less than the CPI of 2021 which was 10.2%,and so workers, despite the raise, have lost buying power in the last year.
