The workers’ struggle in Brazil is primarily centered around individual workplaces, industries, and
national general strikes. Unions vary from reformists who work with the government to more combative unions that are principally focused on the class struggle.
Since Bolsonaro has taken office, he has made “reform” of the national pension system one of his main priorities, which amounts to forcing workers to pay for the country’s economic problems and making it more difficult for them to retire. In response, workers have mobilized tens of millions during general strikes, disrupting transportation and generally paralyzing the economy. The Worker’s League (LO) and Class Movement of Education Workers (Moclate) are two revolutionary organizations representing workers present in the larger class struggle in Brazil.
