"When Lula authorized private banks to enter the payroll loan market, my life became clear, giving me the opportunity to work in informal employment. I sustain my family today with my job as a payroll loan broker."

"In Brazil, many people said, It’s possible for the country to grow,  a few get rich and the rest can remain in poverty.' Celso Furtado was an economist who said it was one thing to grow, but development was something else. A country can only be developed if, in addition to growing its economy, its people grow at the same time, if there are increasingly better jobs, if each family can put their child in school and see him or her go into a university, if each family can have access to health ...

"Because Brazil was not growing, it was not distributing. We see examples of countries in the world that have been growing for ten years, for 14 years, at 6% per year, and there is an improvement in the quality of life of the working people.

Average job generation during the eight years in which the PSDB headed the federal government was nearly 630,000 per year. In 11 years of governments led by Lula and Dilma, the average has been in the range of 1.8 million formal jobs created annually. That is, almost three times greater than FHC’s average.

The Lula and Dilma governments helped overturn the paradigms created to justify the historic choice of government leaders to favor the wealthy. The increase in the value of the minimum wage and real wage gains experienced by workers through inclusive development led to a decline of social, regional and racial inequalities. Between 2002 and 2012 the Northeast’s C class population, for example, increased its share of the total regional population from 28% to 45%. For the first time in history, the northeastern C class exceeds D and E classes: 23.9 compared to 23.7 million people.
