Jakarta Workers Protest For Larger Minimum Wage Increase

From The Jakarta Post:

Hundreds of workers stage a protest in front of the city hall Tuesday. They demanded the governor revise the provincial minimum wage of Rp 1,118,009 (US$122), which was increased by 4.5 percent from last year, to Rp. 1,317,710. -- Jakarta Post/Indah Setiawati

“The recent increase is too small. We want the city to follow the reasonable living costs that were determined based on the survey conducted by the Wage Council,” Halili, a representative of the National Workers Union (SPN), said.
