President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has urged businessmen to pay attention to their workers'€™ welfare. The statement was made in a meeting with workers in Sidoarjo, East Java as part of the May Day observation.
'€œThe economy has been growing and thus companies have made more profit. Therefore, this should be the right moment to consider the workers'€™ welfare,'€ said Yudhoyono in front of 500 PT Maspion factory workers on Wednesday, Kompas.com reported.
Yudhoyono has also encouraged better relationships between management and the workers because it would have a good impact on industry.
The president also announced his plan to turn May Day into a public holiday starting next year.
'€œThe regulation is on the way. Therefore, God willing we could observe next year'€™s May Day in a more solemn way,'€ he said.
After visiting Maspion factory workers, Yudhoyono is scheduled to visit workers at the PT Unilever factory and Surabaya Industrial Estate Rungkut (SIER).(nai/dic)
