Sluggish Garment Industry, Entrepreneurs Reduce Employee Hours PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maizer   
Wednesday, 12 July 2017

The Indonesian Employers 'Association (Apindo) of Semarang City stated that garment industry employees' working hours were reduced because the company experienced a sluggish demand from overseas market. Previously, employees worked up to 12 hours per day, but this time to 8-10 hours, said Chairman Apindo Semarang City Dedi Mulyadi in Semarang.

 

He said, since these three months, foreign markets reduced demand for garment products from members of Apindo Semarang. "Indeed the last three months of sluggish demand as well, which is still a constant shirt that is not generally traded like a uniform," he said.

 

In addition to its special market segmentation, for a period of uniform clothing product contract is usually quite long up to five years. Seeing these opportunities, he said, at this time the entrepreneurs, especially in the field of garment many who target the market.

 

"If the uniform product does not recognize the seasons, not like free clothes depending on market conditions and seasons," he said.

 

Meanwhile, in addition to declining market demand, he said that currently a number of consumer countries are shifting their purchases to other producer countries, one of them to Africa. "Nowadays many investors prefer to open garment factories in African countries such as Nigeria and Zimbabwe, where there are still a lot of labor-intensive companies, so production costs are cheaper," he said.

 

However, he said, many domestic manufacturing companies are also trying to minimize the cost of production in order to maintain competitiveness, one of them from the labor. "Like foreign workers, now many local workers are also qualified and at the same level with foreign workers, instead of hiring more foreign workers, better local labor," he said.

 

Industri Garmen Lesu, Pengusaha Kurangi Jam Kerja Karyawan

 

 

Asosiasi Pengusaha Indonesia (Apindo) Kota Semarang menyatakan jam kerja karyawan industri garmen dikurangi karena perusahaan mengalami kelesuan permintaan dari pasar luar negeri. Sebelumnya, karyawan bekerja hingga 12 jam per hari, tetapi saat ini menjadi 8-10 jam, kata Ketua Apindo Kota Semarang Dedi Mulyadi di Semarang,.

 

Ia mengatakan, sejak tiga bulan ini pasar asing mengurangi permintaan produk garmen dari anggota Apindo Semarang. "Memang tiga bulan terakhir ini permintaan lesu juga, yang masih konstan adalah baju yang tidak diperdagangkan secara umum seperti seragam," katanya.

 

Selain segmentasi pasarnya khusus, untuk jangka waktu kontrak produk pakaian seragam biasanya cukup lama hingga lima tahun. Melihat peluang tersebut, dikatakannya, saat ini para pengusaha khususnya di bidang garmen banyak yang mengincar pasar tersebut.

 

"Kalau produk seragam kan tidak mengenal musim, bukan seperti pakaian-pakaian bebas yang tergantung kondisi pasar dan musim," katanya.

 

 Sementara itu, selain permintaan pasar yang mengalami penurunan, ia mengatakan bahwa saat ini sejumlah negara konsumen banyak yang mengalihkan pembelian mereka ke negara produsen lain, salah satunya ke Afrika.

 

"Sekarang banyak investor yang lebih memilih membuka pabrik garmen di negara-negara Afrika, seperti Nigeria dan Zimbabwe. Di sana masih banyak perusahaan bersifat padat karya sehingga biaya produksi lebih murah," katanya.

 

Meski demikian, dikatakannya, banyak perusahaan-perusahaan manufaktur di dalam negeri yang juga berupaya meminimalisasi ongkos produksi demi mempertahankan daya saing, salah satunya dari sisi tenaga kerja. "Seperti misalnya tenaga kerja asing, sekarang banyak tenaga kerja lokal yang juga mumpuni dan selevel dengan tenaga kerja asing. Daripada kita mempekerjakan tenaga kerja asing, lebih baik tenaga kerja lokal," katanya.
