Santander bank informed last Monday (21st) that it will not pay for hours not worked during Brazil’s games in the 2022 World Cup. The financial institution goes against the grain of other national banks, which have not asked their employees to compensate hours not worked during games.
Santander commented that it had evaluated the situation and the arguments presented. However, he informed that the decision to demand compensation for hours will be maintained. The attitude caused dissatisfaction among bank workers.
“It is a moment of relaxation for the Brazilian population, and the claim for the bonus for hours not worked is entirely possible to be met by a bank that profits so much here in the country with the workforce of its employees”, lamented Lucimara Malaquias, coordinator of the Santander Employee Organization Commission and executive director of the Bank Workers Union of São Paulo, Osasco and region.

Great stage of the men’s team
Brazil’s men’s national team arrives at the Qatar Cup undefeated. Of the eight games played this year, Brazil won seven and drew one, against Ecuador. In addition, Brazil has 27 goals scored and only three conceded. It is the second longest series of invincibility in Brazil, which has already gone 36 games without losing, between 1993 and 1996.
In addition, one of the greatest stars of the current selection arrives in a great phase for the cup. Uninjured and in excellent physical condition, Neymar arrives with high expectations. However, this time, the playmaker does not carry the weight alone, of those called up by Tite, Pedro do Flamengo, Everton Ribeiro from Flamengo, Gabriel Jesus from Arsenal, Raphinha from Barcelona, Vinicius Jr from Real Madrid and Richarlison from Tottenham are some of the well-known names of Brazilians and share with Neymar, in addition to the other players and coach Tite, the responsibility of bringing home the sixth.
