“If the foreign workers here have local workers alongside them and transfer of knowledge is done, then the local should be able to complete the job. Thus, there is no more need to hire foreign workers in Indonesia,” Said Iqbal said.

Based on Said’s assessment, the recent hiring of Chinese workers violates the law that regulates the employment of foreign workers in Indonesia.

Moreover, Said Iqbal touched upon the language barrier of foreign workers.

The inability of foreign workers in Indonesia to speak Bahasa Indonesia is a form of violation as it complicates communication during the transfer of knowledge.

“I don’t believe that graduates from Indonesia’s top universities lack the skills needed. The Indonesian Trade Union Confederation asks the government to return the Chinese workers who recently arrived and void the entry of the 500 Chinese workers,” affirmed Said Iqbal.
