The Politics of Law on Wage Systems In Indonesia

Teguh Pribadi, Made Warka, Krisnadi Nasution


Indonesian Politics of Law in terms of wages must pay attention to the value system, ethics, and unwritten law. Each community has certain goals to be accomplished by its members. To achieve these goals, there are facilities provided that can be used, but in reality, not everyone can use these available facilities. This situation causes the use of inappropriate means in achieving goals and will arise irregularities in achieving goals. The existence of social classes and structures in society causes different opportunities for achieving goals. It is often seen that wage policies in Indonesia still reflect on the differences between the lower class and higher class (upper class)". These class differences and opportunities are the main factors of the tug-of-war between workers and employers in the demands of increasing minimum wages each year. It happens because both parties have their own different interests. For that, legal instruments must be able to be used as guidelines in determining and stipulating wages of workers to meet the needs for workers and their families, so as to improve the quality, role and position, and protection of workers according to human rights.
