Jakarta's daily construction workers to pass certification program
The Jakarta Post
Jakarta’s daily rate construction workers will have to complete a certification program that aims to standardize production and improve workers’ welfare through education.
The certification program, a mandate by incumbent Jakarta Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama, would certify the workers’ abilities to paint, plaster, install ceramics, apply roofing and so on.
“They could earn double the UMP [provincial minimum wage],” Jakarta Goods and Services Procurement Agency (BPPBJ) head Blessmyanda said on Thursday as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com.
He added that certified workers could then work on projects auctioned by the administration to private companies.
The agency has asked the National Profession Standardization Agency (BNSP) to control the exams and certifications.
