Indonesia’s Central Statistic Agency announced that working conditions in the country have improved, backed by the growing portion of full time employees, Margo Yuwono, head of the agency said.

“The percentage of full-time workers or those who work more than 35 hours per week shows an increase from 64.30% in August 2021 to 68.46% in August 2022,” Margo said.

There is also an increase in formal workers, Margo added that of 135 million workers, 37.6% are labourers or staff and employees.

“The increase in the number of formal workers shows that the situation continues to improve even though it has not fully recovered to pre-pandemic proportions,” he said.
