Brazilians are feeling more pessimistic. As the coronavirus progresses, more people expect their income to decrease due to the paralysis of economic activity.
According to a survey conducted by Datafolha last week, 69% predict that their earnings will fall in the coming months, and only 30% think that this will not happen. In March, such percentages were 57% and 43%.
Among the poorest, with gains of up to two minimum wages, those who expect to lose income were 61% and now are 73%.
Among those with income above ten minimums, the range went from 49% to 67%.
Among the richest, pessimism also skyrocketed. In March, 55% of those interviewed foresaw a prolonged crisis. Last week, the bloc increased to 71%. 37% already expect losses for a long time.
