Under the banner of HOSTUM – Hapus OutSourcing Lawan Upah Murah (Stop Outsourcing, Fight Against Low Wage), estimated 40,000 labours members of Konfederasi Serikat Pekerja Indonesia (KSPI) rally along Jalan M.H Thamrin in Central Jakarta today, 12 July, to urge the government to stop outsourcing and improve wage!
The Confederation confirmed that this HOSTUM campaign is so important. KSPI said that fighting for better wage for all workers around the world has been the way for improving living standard of themselves and their family. In the other side, better wage is one of nation welfare measures in which the higher the people purchasing power the higher the economy will be.
The HOSTUM will be the KSPI’s campaign agenda throughout this 2012.
