While it was interesting for the government, the rich farmers and the Portuguese Crown, the black slaves and Indians were kept in the system of manpower working to move the economy. When the picture has changed and other interests prevailed, America began to receive migrant workers particularly from Italy, Japan, Germany and other countries.
Outside, the abolitionist movement grew and grew and the slave trade was banned. Between the years 1840 and 1857 most immigrants came from Italy. They came to Brazil with the promise of better life, and the expense of travel paid for by coffee farmers. The proposed work here was based on the concept of partnerships. The immigrant was in charge of land and production, the sale of merchandise, the profit was divided between the farmer and the immigrant. But because of the abuses of farmers, people in Europe have lost the interest to come to Brazil, because in practice the system was to exploit the manpower of foreigners. But at the end of the nineteenth century the system of hiring employees gave new impetus to immigration. These immigrants also fueled factories with skilled labor.
The import of manpower from Europe was diametrically opposed to the system of slavery, the slave system was losing more strength, more immigrants were attracted to Brazil. This process lasted from 1850, when it was banned the slave trade. In 1871 the children of slaves were free by virtue of the Law Finally on May 13, 1888 the Golden Law, abolished slavery in Brazil. This process lasted 38 years and was enough to change the basis of hand labor to produce goods in Brazil. Even today the Brazilian state and society owes a debt to blacks for damages that have been freed, but without compensation for centuries of construction services in Brazil.
