In Brazil, labor unions have called a nationwide general strike today to protest President Michel Temer’s plans to dramatically roll back pensions and weaken labor laws. Organizers predict it will be the largest work stoppage in Brazil’s history. The strike comes just over a year after the impeachment of former President Dilma Rousseff, who called her ouster a coup, and amid a huge corruption scandal involving much of Brazil’s Congress and a third of President Temer’s Cabinet.
