From A Minimum Wage To A Living Wage

From The Jakarta Post:

The minimum wages set by the government in 2009 met an average of 64 percent of the basic needs of workers employed in the textiles and garments sector, a recent survey found. The survey was jointly conducted by the National Workers Union (SPN), the Garment and Textile Workers Union Federation (Garteks) and AKATIGA, a center for social analysis supported by German-based NGO Frederich Ebert Stiftung (FES) and the Asian Textile Workers Union (TWARO), in Banten, Jakarta, West and Central Java, in March and April, 2009.
