Portugal: Hundreds of people marched in the Portuguese capital of Lisbon on Saturday, demanding greater wages and other measures to combat growing living costs.

The march was organized by the CGTP, the country’s major trade union confederation, a day after civil officials went on strike in favour of greater wages.

This action affected garbage collection, schools, and hospitals.

The CGTP urges the government to undertake a package of anti-poverty measures, including price limits on vital items and action to limit skyrocketing rents and property loan costs.

Inflation hit 7.4 percent in 2022, the highest amount in 30 years.

CGTP General Secretary Isabel Camarinha told the gathering that they sought pay increases of at least 10% over inflation and no less than 100 euros ($108) for all workers.
