Slave Labor

In october 2017, a resolution presented by Ronaldo Nogueira and adopted by the government, altered the terms by which people who are exploited under conditions analogous to slavery could benefit from legal proceedings.

One of the measures outlined in the decree redefines slavery as being confined to "restrictions on the freedom of movement" of workers. However, experts note that such a reformulation pushes the country back to May 13, 1888, when the legalities of slavery were abolished in Brazil.

Political career

Nogueira voted in favor of the impeachment against then-president Dilma Rousseff.[2] Nogueira voted in favor of the Brazil labor reform (2017), and would later back Rousseff's successor Michel Temer against a similar corruption investigation and impeachment motion.[3]
