A boy is waiting to be paid to be a houseboy in Brazil, but the job pays less than $10 an hour.
The family has been renting a two-bedroom, four-bathroom home in a wealthy neighborhood in the northeastern city of Campinas for more than two years.
It’s a rare job for young men, but they make up a majority of the local workforce.
The houseboy is an average 18-year-old who is expected to work around 12 hours a day and has been there for a month.
His parents, both from the same family, work the night shift at a coffee shop.
We don’t have any money to pay for anything, he said, as his family struggled to pay rent, which was $20 per month.
He said the money was never enough to cover the rent.
They didn’t want to give up.
They wanted to continue.
The young men’s jobs are a rarity in Brazil.
It’s rare for a man to be an apprentice, or a part-time worker, for example.
But many of the jobs that are available for young people don’t pay a living wage.
They don’t require education.
They’re usually not for girls.
For years, the local media reported that Brazil has the highest rate of youth unemployment in the world.
In 2017, about 70 percent of the working-age population was aged 15-24.
Brazil is one of the fastest-growing economies in the region, and Brazil’s unemployment rate is the highest in Latin America.
It has been trending upward since 2009.
The unemployment rate for young Brazilian men has climbed to nearly 10 percent.
Many of the young men said they feel unsafe and insecure because of their gender.
They feel they have no choice but to work in dangerous situations, like being in the jungle.
When the family first rented the home, they were told it was for their family.
They were given no information.
I have no idea where I’m going, they said.
I am a virgin.
I don’t want my father to know that I’m a virgin, said 18-yr-old Jairo, who asked that his last name not be used.
I don’t know what I’m doing.
It scares me.
I know it’s dangerous, but I don`t want to leave the house.
I have been working in the Amazon for seven years, and I`m ready to leave now, he added.
But he worries about his safety, saying his mother has been shot.
If I get in trouble, I can leave.
My parents are worried, he told ESPN.
They`re worried that they`ll get arrested.
These young men are the future of the country.
If they`re not here, Brazil`s economy will suffer.
