Indosiar Employees Demand Pay Raise

From The Jakarta Globe:

Around 200 employees of Indosiar, a private television station in Indonesia, were staging a rally in front of their office building on Jalan Daan Mogot in West Jakarta on Monday demanding better salaries and facilities.   The staff alleged that many employees had not received a pay raise in six years.  The demonstrators wore black Indosiar uniforms and red headbands. They carried posters with slogans on them such as “six years with no pay raise” and “don’t fool us.”   The head of Indosiar’s employee union, Dicky Irawan, alleged in his oration that Indosiar had not obeyed the Labor Law.  “There are many Indosiar employees who have worked here for five years but their basic (monthly) salary is under Rp 350,000 ($38). Overtime pay on holiday is only Rp 40,000 ($ 4.38). It is against the Labor Law,” Dicky said.
