Brazil Created 126,143 Registered Jobs in October

Brazil’s economy created 126,143 government-registered jobs in October, the Labor Ministry said.

Analysts had expected Latin America’s biggest economy to add 167,178 formal jobs, according to the median estimate in a Bloomberg survey of 12 economists.

Government-registered job creation number is a balance of posts created minus job eliminated. Registered jobs, so-called formal work, assure employees a range of benefits such as unemployment insurance, bonuses and retirement payments by the government.
