The story

History Dictionary


Political doctrine that defends the improvement of the social and economic conditions of the workers. Labor is a stream of ideas that lies in the left field and is close to socialism. However, it does not intend to replace capitalist society with a socialist society. It seeks only to create conditions for workers to live in dignity, receiving good wages and enjoying state protection. Labor is particularly strong in England, where the Labor Party, created in the late nineteenth century, has exercised power with some regularity since 1945. In Brazil, this stream of ideas was asserted under the various governments of Getúlio Vargas (1930 - 1945 and 1951 - 1954). There are currently two parties linked to it: the Democratic Labor Party (PDT) and the Brazilian Labor Party (PTB).
