BigBussiness – During the Covid-19 pandemic, the capabilities of business were not the same. There are large companies, medium-sized companies and small companies. If early retirement pay is too high, wages are too high and working hours are too rigid, it is difficult for small and medium-sized enterprises to grow.
“That is why we have made regulations that also reflect solidarity with small industries, Job Creation Law,” said Minister of Labor (Menaker), Ida Fauziyah, Tuesday (13/10/2020).
He said this in a roadshow to socialize the legislation on job creation. Ida met almost 70 representatives from unions and employers who participated in the Negotiation Skills Training for Industrial Relations Players in Yogyakarta.
This event was organized by the Ministry of Labor (Kemnaker), as part of an attempt to improve stakeholders’ opportunities for dialogue and negotiation.

“As a result of the pandemic, our unemployment rate has increased to 6.9 million people, and 3.5 million are victims of redundancies (termination of employment). While every year there is an increase of 2.9 million new populations of working age. A total of almost 10 million just for 2020. So in the law on job creation we include many conditions to make it easy to do business.The establishment of MSME, for example, has made it easier to become registration-based, does not require permits, so they are not long and “Establishing a cooperative is only enough for 5 people, establishing a NPT is also simplified, only 1 person is enough, so that MSME can become legal entities so that they can be bankable. Can get credit,” said Ida.
Present at the forum, a number of union leaders at the provincial, district / city level for companies, including the Confederation of All Indonesian Workers Unions (K SPSI), the National Trade Union Confederation (K SPN) and a number of unions, especially hotels
