The Jakarta administration has pledged to find jobs for 1,000 former employees of night-time entertainment center and massage parlor Alexis Hotel in North Jakarta after the closure of the establishment.
Deputy Jakarta Governor Sandiaga Uno said the administration would involve the workers in his entrepreneurship training program known as the One District One Center of Entrepreneurship (OK OCE).
"Workers in Alexis Hotel will be coordinated with OK OCE," said Sandiaga at the Jakarta Police headquarters in South Jakarta as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com on Tuesday.
Such a policy would be implemented given that the city administration had decided to close down Alexis, which is widely rumored to have been host to high-class prostitution services.
Sandiaga added that the officials had classified the workers into several categories.
"Those working for the hospitality section will be referred to similar hotel employers by the Jakarta Manpower and Transmigration Agency. Those working in the restaurants can work for restaurant businesses in the OK OCE program,” said Sandiaga.
He then said that those working in Alexis’ nighttime entertainment section would be directed to work in beauty salons and bridal makeup service providers. (agn)
