Jakarta Minimum Wage Set to Rise 3.6% in 2024
TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Acting Governor of Jakarta Heru Budi Hartono officially announced the 2024 provincial minimum wage (UMP) for Jakarta. According to Heru, Jakarta's 2024 minimum wage is now Rp5,067,381, or a 3.6 percent increase from this year's minimum wage.
The increase in the minimum wage is based on the regulated formula set in Government Regulation (PP) No. 51 of 2023 concerning the amendment of PP No. 36 of 2021 on Wages.
"The highest alfa 0.30 was in accordance with PP No. 51 of 2023. The provincial government is not allowed to derogate the provisions set by the central government," said Heru Budi in Jakarta City Hall today, Tuesday, Nov. 21.
