According to Dieese (Inter-Union Department of Statistics and Socioeconomic Studies), the payment of the 13th salary can inject around R$ 233 billion into the economy.
The amount represents 2.7% of the country’s GDP and will be paid to workers in the formal market, including domestic workers; to Social Security beneficiaries and retirees and pension beneficiaries of the Union, states and municipalities.
