Most provincial administrations postpone decision on UMP.
Irianto Simbolon, the director general of industrial relations development and worker social security, blamed the recent big strike for the delay in the implementation of UMP until 2014 from Nov. 1, 2013. Among the provinces which have determined their UMP, Jakarta has the highest at Rp2.44 million or an increase of 10.9% from 2013. The UMP in West Nusa Tenggara is the lowest at. The association of Indonesian business leaders (Apindo)suggested that employers especially among the small and medium enterprises (UMKM) that could not fulfill the UMP submit proposal for dispensation to governors. Apindo chairman Sofjan Wanandi said based on experience many UMKM could not pay their workers according to the UMP ruling.
