Brazil Congress upholds president's veto of judiciary salary increase

BRASILIA, Nov 17 (Reuters) - Brazil’s Congress on Tuesday upheld President Dilma Rousseff’s veto of a bill to raise judiciary employees’ wages, in a victory for the leftist leader as she tries to avert a fiscal meltdown and regain investors’ confidence.

The wage increases would have cost her government 36.2 billion reais ($9.5 billion) in extra expenditures until 2019, according to Finance Ministry data. (Reporting by Leonardo Goy; Writing by Reese Ewing; Editing by Sandra Maler)
