On the pledge:
We will promote the filling of job openings with reference to the apprenticeship quota integrating adolescents and young people into the labour market.
On the implementation:
We will mobilize labour prosecutors throughout Brazil to notify companies in the various Brazilian municipalities to fulfil the apprenticeship quota.
On the impact:
It is recalled that more than 75% of child labour in Brazil is concentrated in the age bracket between 14 and 17 years of age, which is also the priority age bracket for the apprenticeship quota.
