TEMPO Interactive, Semarang:Several companies in Central Java have been dismissing workers since September due to the world financial crisis and this will continue.
“Businesses cannot do anything in facing the global crisis. The export market is bad. There are no more orders,” said Central Java’s Indonesian Businessmen Association’s advocacy division head, Agung Wahono, on Tuesday (2/12).

According to Agung, companies have been forced to dismiss their workers because they could not resume their activities.

These companies include PT Daya Manunggal Tekstil (Damatex) Salatiga, which dismissed 237 workers, PT Rimba Karya Prima Magelang dismissed 180 workers, PT Batamtex Ungaran dismissed around 100 workers, and PT Aditex dismissed 850 workers.

According to Agung, in addition to issues related to the global crisis, increasing workers’ wages is also another reason for the dismissals.

Central Java governor Bibit Waluyo has set an average rise of 12 percent for the minimum monthly wage in Central Java compared to last year.

Businesspeople asked that a rise in the minimum monthly wage should not exceed more than six percent.
“The governor ignored our request,” said Agung.

You know this unemployment issue is already a big thing here in Jakarta with companies laying people off every day here. I would hope that most JC'ers know that Idul Adha is on this coming Monday so it would help if you dig in your pocket and scrap a few IDR together and buy a goat, buffalo or cow and give it to the nearest mosque for sacrifice so the meat can be given to the poor that have a few chances to eat meat these days.

And yes, my wife and I do practice what I am preaching tonight, for the Kemang Utara boys, the wife and I will be at your favorite Pasar tomorrow (Wednesday) picking out 2 heifers for a good time on Monday........

that is not the islamic way. amal must be performed publicly for all to see.

muslims are particularly fond of bestowing their amal upon orphans and widows, and during times like idul adha, shortages of these can cause great consternation among the most pious.

It's not all doom and gloom on the job front ... No slow down in local recruitment that I have seen. Q4 was the best for the year and already booked in January and February target. The only slow down is for expat recruitment as nobody is that interested in paying USD salaries and housing.
