Indonesia: Thousands protest in Jakarta demanding higher minimum wage

4 29.09.2016 Инфо

Thousands of workers flooded the streets of Jakarta, Thursday, to demand the government repeal a disputed wage regulation and raise the minimum wage.
The protesters also demanded the government end the tax amnesty drive for tax evaders and withdraw a law that excludes labour unions from negotiating over the minimum wage.
Since article number 78 on wages was passed by the Indonesian government in October 2015, the country has witnessed waves of protests by workers and labour unions.
