Stop Widodo’s Omnibus Bill and protect Indonesian workers and their families!
The Omnibus Bill on Job Creation is a shameless attempt by the government of President Joko Widodo to exploit the present Covid-19 crisis in order to reduce wages, remove entitlements and erode workers’ rights in Indonesia. It will only harm people and the environment. I urge the Indonesian House of Representatives to reject the proposed ‘Omnibus Bill on Job Creation’. This bill would cause significant harm to Indonesian working class and their families.
Why is this important?
The working class of Indonesia are opposing attempts by the Government of Indonesia to introduce the Omnibus Bill on Job Creation that seeks to exploit the present Covid-19 crisis in order to reduce wages, remove entitlements and erode workers’ rights in Indonesia. The government of President Joko Widodo is arguing that this bill which aims to rewrite 79 laws to deliver greater foreign direct investment, support economic growth and create job opportunities for Indonesians. But the reality is the Omnibus Bill will only harm working people and the environment. It must be stopped.
