Workers in Central Java Minim of Demonstration and Wages Affordable PDF Print E-mail

Deputy of Investment Control BKPM Azhar Lubis, said that the shift in the orientation of labor-intensive investment. Compared with other provinces, Central Java more attractive to investors because standard wages are relatively low when compared to other provinces, also coupled with the workers in Central Java to demonstrate.

 

He added that this condition could cause a reduction in the outflow of people from villages to big cities later.

 

"In the future we will indeed move labor-intensive industries to Central Java due to lower wages there. Thus, urbanization may be reduced because they do not have far to big cities to find work, "he said in Jakarta.

 

 

As an illustration, the province of East Java and Jakarta in 2015 had the highest MSE and the Provincial Minimum Wage (UMP) are both in the number of Rp 2.7 million. While the highest MSEs in West Java and Banten each have a number of Rp 2.95 million and Rp 2.4 million.In 2014 states that the minimum wage City / Regency (UMK) Central Java, the highest is only Rp 1.38 million, where this figure is relatively small compared to the highest value in the whole province UMK other Java.

 

 

Lower wages, indicate that purchasing power in the province has a purchasing power that is too high. Given that assumption, he also said that the future of Central Java is an area that most rarely do workers' demonstration.

 

 

"Usually the labor-intensive industry to take the labor of the surrounding area. If the work place close to where you live, in the afternoon they can go home to their families, do not have to worry about the rent again, its purchasing power is high, so the lack of demonstration, "he said.

 

 

Sometimes earlier, the chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) Ade Sudradjat also said that investors textiles from China and South Korea is eyeing Central Java province because the amount of labor and a lot of low wages.

 

 

"Most of them just graduated from elementary school (SD) and High School (SMP). But it just so the appeal for two foreign textile investors plan would invest Rp 1.5 trillion this year, "said Ade in Jakarta last month.

 

 

What was delivered by Ade Sudrajat is based on data from the Central Statistics Agency (BPS) in Central Java who noted that most of the workforce is dominated primary school graduates with figures of 9.39 million people, or 54.19 percent of the total labor force in Central Java with 17 , 32 million people.

 

Buruh di Jawa Tengah Minim Demonstrasi dan Upahnya Terjangkau

 

 

Deputi bidang Pengendalian Investasi BKPM Azhar Lubis, mengatakan adanya pergeseran orientasi investasi padat karya. Dibandingkan dengan provinsi lain, Jawa Tengah lebih diminati oleh para investor karena strandar upah yang relatif rendah bila dibandingkan dengan provinsi lainnya, juga ditambah dengan buruh di Jawa Tengah untuk berdemonstrasi.

 

Ia menambahkan bahwa kondisi ini bisa menyebabkan berkurangnya arus perpindahan penduduk dari desa ke kota besar nantinya.

 

“Kedepannya memang kita akan menggerakkan industri padat karya ke Jawa Tengah karena upah bisa lebih rendah di sana. Dengan demikian, semoga arus urbanisasi bisa berkurang karena mereka tidak perlu jauh-jauh ke kota besar untuk mencari pekerjaan,” terangnya di Jakarta.

 

Sebagai gambaran, provinsi Jawa Timur dan DKI Jakarta pada tahun 2015 memiliki UMK tertinggi dan Upah Minimum Provinsi (UMP) sama-sama di angka Rp 2,7 juta. Sedangkan UMK tertinggi di Jawa Barat dan Banten masing-masing memiliki angka Rp 2,95 juta dan Rp 2,4 juta.Sementara tahun 2014 menyebutkan bahwa Upah Minimum Kota/Kabupaten (UMK) Jawa Tengah paling tinggi hanya sebesar Rp 1,38 juta, dimana angka ini relatif lebih kecil dibandingkan nilai UMK tertinggi di seluruh provinsi Jawa lainnya.

 

Upah yang lebih rendah, berindikasi bahwa daya beli di provinsi tersebut memiliki daya beli yang juga tinggi. Dengan adanya asumsi itu, ia juga mengatakan bahwa nantinya Jawa Tengah adalah daerah yang paling jarang melakukan demonstrasi buruh.

 

“Biasanya industri padat karya mengambil tenaga kerja dari wilayah sekitarnya. Kalau tempat kerja dekat dengan tempat tinggal, sore mereka bisa pulang ke keluarganya, tidak perlu khawatir sewa rumah lagi, daya belinya tinggi, sehingga minim demonstrasi,” tuturnya.

 

Beberapa waktu sebelumnya, ketua Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) Ade Sudradjat juga mengatakan bahwa investor tekstil asal Tiongkok dan Korea Selatan mengincar provinsi Jawa Tengah karena jumlah tenaga kerja yang banyak dan upah yang rendah.

 

“Kebanyakan dari mereka hanya lulusan Sekolah Dasar (SD) dan Sekolah Menengah Pertama (SMP). Tapi itu justru jadi daya tarik bagi dua investor tekstil asing yang rencananya mau menanamkan modal senilai Rp 1,5 triliun pada tahun ini, ” terang Ade di Jakarta pada bulan lalu.

 

Apa yang disampaikan oleh Ade Sudrajat ini didasari dari data Badan Pusat Statistik (BPS) Jawa Tengah yang mencatat bahwa sebagian besar tenaga kerja didominasi lulusan SD dengan angka 9,39 juta orang, atau 54,19 persen dari total tenaga kerja Jawa Tengah dengan jumlah 17,32 juta orang.
