Personal lifeEdit

Braga is the son of Roberto Ricardo Braga e Maria da Saudade Medeiros Braga.[1] His mother was a noted left-wing politician. Braga has described Carlos Marighella, Plínio de Arruda Sampaio, Luís Carlos Prestes, Olga Benário Prestes, and Zumbi as his role models.[2]

Political careerEdit

Braga voted against the impeachment motion of then-president Dilma Rousseff.[3] Braga voted in opposition to the 2017 Brazilian labor reform,[4] and would vote in favor of opening a corruption investigation into Rousseff's successor Michel Temer.[5]

Braga was a vocal opponent of law Nº 13,429/2017, signed by Temer which allowed companies to hire outsourced employees from outside the company for primary activities. Braga said "it's not about granting rights to the outsourced worker. It's about outsourcing all and any activity of the labor market, worsening labor relations and worsening rights".[6]
