VIVAnews - Transmigration and Manpower Agency of Jakarta was negative about the targeted decrease of employment rate in the Indonesian capital. The budget only allocates Rp12 billion, lower than the 2011 State Budget of Rp38 billion.

Chief of Transmigration and Manpower Agency of Jakarta, Dedet Sukandar, was upset over the minimizing of the agency's main programs.

"Such activities as Job Fair and employment exhibition may help the city employ new workers," said Dedet in Jakarta today, Jan 20.

Every year, the Jakarta administration targets cut in employment rate by one percent. Data of the National Statistics Agency (2010) shows that Jakarta houses 580,000 of unemployed people.
