The Ministry of Labor and Welfare informed today (30) that 253,083 formal jobs were created in October. The numbers are part of the New General Register of Employed and Unemployed Persons (Novo Caged). According to the survey, the balance is 2.6 million new vacancies in the first ten months of this year.

In the assessment of the Minister of Labor and Welfare, Onyx Lorenzoni, the positive balance in formal job creation is a demonstration of the formal recovery of the economy.

“This year alone, even with the effects of 'stay at home, we'll see the economy later', we managed to generate more than 2.6 million new formal jobs,” said the minister.

Last month, the service sector generated 144,600 jobs. In commerce, 70,300 jobs were created. In third place, the industry sector had a balance of 26,600 new jobs.

The states of São Paulo (76.9 thousand), Minas Gerais (21.3 thousand) and Rio de Janeiro (19.7 thousand) were the states that generated the most jobs.
