Chairman of the DPD HIPPI DKI Jakarta, Sarman Simanjorang said that so far Jakarta’s economic growth has always been above the average national economic growth, but in the third quarter of 2021 something unusual happened where Jakarta’s economic growth was below the national economic growth.

For this reason, Sarman stated that in the conditions of Jakarta’s slowing economic growth, it would not be appropriate for the Labor Union to demand an increase in the UMP by 10 percent.

“We have to bear the data and facts released by the DKI Jakarta BPS and face it together while hoping that in the future the Jakarta economy will grow and improve. So that the next UMP can increase for better worker welfare,” he said in a written statement, Monday (15 /11/2021).

He hopes that the DKI Jakarta Government and the Wage Council in setting the 2022 UMP are guided by PP No. 36 of 2021 concerning Wages and refers to official data from the DKI Jakarta BPS regarding economic growth, inflation, purchasing power parity, labor absorption rates and median wages.

As is known, economic growth in the second quarter of 2021, Jakarta’s economic growth is still above the average national economic growth of 10.91 percent, while the national economic growth is 7.07 percent. Jakarta’s economy is still the pillar of national economic growth in the second quarter of 2021.

Sarman explained that this condition illustrates that the Jakarta economy is in a slump due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As a service city, the PPKM policy greatly influences various economic activities in DKI Jakarta.

The implementation of emergency PPKM, then PPKM level 1 to level 4 which limits various business sector activities in DKI Jakarta makes Jakarta’s economic growth slow down. Various business sectors such as trade, tourism, transportation, various entertainment and services that have been driving Jakarta’s economy are almost stagnant.

The main capital of Jakarta’s economy is the movement of people, the freer and more people move, the more opportunities there are for economic transactions to occur. But during the implementation of PPKM practically everything is very limited.

“But this policy must indeed be taken in order to control the spread of Covid-19, and the results can be felt now where with awareness and support from all elements of society we are able to control Covid-19 and our economy has started to crawl,” he concluded.[]
