Joaquim Pipa, national director of rural trade development at the Ministry explained that the ministry wants to improve the working conditions of the markets and that one of the improvements is to recognize informal sellers as formal.
Cited by Angop, the responsible explained that the informal sellers will be considered contributors of the National Institute of Social Security (INSS). This change will allow the sellers to have the right to retirement, after they reach the age or reach the time of service established by law.
He stressed that it is necessary to improve agribusiness in order to ensure that the consumer has access to a greater variety of products.
On the price increase, Joaquim Pipa explained that speculation is being caused by the production, transport, storage, transformation and packaging of products.
Joaquim Pipa visited this Wednesday the "Green Market" to verify the working conditions. The market, which provides more than 100 direct jobs, is intended for the sale of flowers, handicrafts, among others.
