Greater Jakarta: City issues new welfare cards
The Jakarta Post
The Jakarta administration has launched on Friday the Kartu Pekerja (Workers Card) to fulfill its promise to lower daily expenses for workers earning the 2018 provincial minimum wage (UMP) or less.
The promise was made following a series of protests in November over the Rp 3.6 million (US$252) minimum wage set for 2018, which was less than the Rp 3.9 million labor unions had demanded.
