The way with numbered days?
Although likely, a way to withdraw FGTS is in the sights of the new Minister of Labour, Louise Marinho (Labour). He announced that he would submit a proposal to President Luis Inacio Lola da Silva (PT) to ban the anniversary withdrawal.
Prior to that, the Minister announced that he would discuss the matter with the FGTS Board of Trustees. Luiz Marinho’s goal is to preserve the savings of the worker and to preserve the real function of the FGTS. The subject divides opinions, and depending on the following definitions, the method may cease to exist.
Christmas withdrawal is the preference of many Brazilians who have adhered to the model. Currently, more than 28 million workers work in the method which moves about R$12 billion annually.
