Brazil's Supreme Federal Court (STF) has decided by majority vote to increase the salaries of Justices (themselves) and other Court employees by 18% starting in 2023. The proposal is to raise the salary of Supreme Court judges from R$39,200 to R$46,300 (US$9,000).
That may not sound like much to your U.S. and European ears, but it's a fortune in Brazil. As the overview below from PageGroup shows, Justices are in the absolute highest salary category of all salary earners in Brazil. And that was true even before the 18% salary increase . . .
