In Lisbon, a large crowd of people took to the streets to protest against the cost of living crisis in Portugal. The demonstration, organized by the General Confederation of Portuguese Workers, saw thousands of pensioners and workers come together to voice their concerns.
The protestors demanded that the government take action to address the worsening cost of living crisis in the country. They called for a minimum wage increase of 10% to help struggling families make ends meet. They also urged the authorities to take immediate action to address workers’ workplace discontent.
The cost of living in Portugal has been rising steadily in recent years, with many families struggling to make ends meet. The pandemic has only exacerbated this issue, with many businesses closing down and unemployment rates skyrocketing. This has left many Portuguese workers feeling frustrated and hopeless.
The protest in Lisbon was a clear message to the government that action is needed to address the cost of living crisis and protect the rights of workers. It remains to be seen if the government will take the demands of the protestors seriously and take steps to alleviate the burden of rising costs on the people of Portugal.
