Unemployed Brazilians wait to fill out applications while looking for jobs in Sao Paulo, May 11, 2015. Brazil's monthly inflation rate eased more than expected in April to the lowest in five months, data showed on May 8, underpinning government expectations that the worst of Brazil's recent price surge is over. Brazil's unemployment rate is still rising and so is the nation's primary deficit, raising questions about whether government's plan of budget cuts and tax increases will put Brazil's finances in order after years of high deficits and disappointing growth.
