House of Representatives legislators urged the government to revise the minimum labor wage after the plan on raising subsidized-fuel price had been approved.

Golkar Party's Poemida Hidayatullah said as quoted by tribunnews.com that the government had to start formulating incentive schemes for businesses so that they would not bear higher production costs if the minimum wage were to be increased.

Separately, Rieke Dyah Pitaloka from the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) said that the minimum labor wage should be increased by at least 30 percent.
