Presented by the Chairman of API Ade Sudrajat and the Indonesian Textile Association (API) recorded in Majalaya, Bandung regency, West Java, there are 60 textile industries were laying off thousands of employees during the first 3 months in 2015. The move is due to the impact of declining sales of textile manufacturers, until blended -rata reached 50%.


Majalaya an industrial center area which became the forerunner of the modern textile industry in Indonesia. The development of this region as a center of textile industry has been around since the 1930s.


"Perhaps there are already laid off about 6,000 people," said Ade.


Ade admitted, there is no complete data about the number of workers who are laid off or laid off in the textile center Majalaya and industrial centers of textile and textile products (TPT) in Indonesia.


"This also occurs in various regions, various kind nobody makes sarong, there was a small scale and medium enterprises," he said.


The average of the textile industry in Majalaya able to absorb hundreds of workers. Ade count, with an average of 100 people were laid off, then from 60 factories, there are 6,000's of people who have been laid off.


According to Ade, the main cause of this phenomenon occurs because of the weakened purchasing power as a form of Indonesian economic slowdown early in the year. With the act of laying off employees by the textile factory, then the impact on the further drop in purchasing power.


Produksi Turun 50%, Industri tekstil merumahkan 6.000-an Karyawan


Disampaikan oleh Ketua Umum API Ade Sudrajat dan Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) mencatat di Majalaya, Kabupaten Bandung, Jawa Barat terdapat 60 industri tekstil yang merumahkan ribuan karyawannya selama 3 bulan pertama di 2015. Langkah ini akibat dampak turunnya penjualan para pabrikan tekstil, hingga rata-rata mencapai 50%.


Majalaya merupakan kawasan sentra industri yang menjadi cikal bakal industri tekstil modern di Indonesia. Perkembangan kawasan ini sebagai pusat industri tekstil sudah ada sejak 1930-an.


"Barangkali sudah ada yang dirumahkan sekitar 6.000  orang," kata Ade.


Ade mengaku, belum ada data lengkap soal jumlah pekerja yang dirumahkan atau di-PHK pada pusat tekstil Majalaya dan sentra industri tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT) lainnya di Indonesia.


"Ini juga terjadi di berbagai daerah, macam-macam jenisnya ada yang membuat kain sarung, skalanya pun ada yang kecil dan menengah," katanya.


Rata-rata satu industri tekstil di Majalaya mampu menyerap ratusan tenaga kerja. Ade menghitung, dengan rata-rata 100 orang yang dirumahkan, maka dari 60 pabrik, ada 6.000-an orang yang telah dirumahkan.


Menurut Ade, penyebab utama fenomena ini terjadi karena daya beli masyarakat yang melemah sebagai bentuk melemahnya ekonomi Indonesia di awal tahun. Dengan adanya tindakan merumahkan karyawan oleh para pabrik tekstil, maka berdampak pada makin anjloknya daya beli.
