Businesspeople worried about possible Indonesian wage hike

Taiwanese businesspeople based in Indonesia expressed concern yesterday over the prospect the Indonesian government will raise workers' minimum wage.

Their remarks came after mass protests staged by workers in Jakarta demanding that the wage be raised. The Indonesian government has reportedly promised to do so.

The country's current minimum wage is 1.5 million rupiah, or about NT$4,567. The country's main union is demanding that the wage be raised to 2.8 million rupiah, or NT$8,525.

Taiwan businesspeople expressed concern, saying the margin of increase may be unacceptable to employers.

I hope they do increase the wages in Indonesia, why should 4% of the population control the rest of Indonesia. Of course the Chinese will complain as they own about 60% of businesses. You don't want Indonesians in Taiwan but also you don't want them able to make a living in their home country. You can't make and eat the cake all by yourself!
