On April 1, Indonesia and Malaysia signed the MoU on the placement and protection of Indonesian migrant workers in Malaysia.
The MoU was signed at the Ministry of Manpower in Jakarta, where both parties agreed to manage a one-channel system for the recruitment of Indonesian migrant workers. This process will cover the placement, monitoring, and returning of the workers.
Indonesia’s Manpower Minister Ida Fauziyah said that both countries agreed on the placement process and the salary amount.
The Indonesian representatives in Malaysia have been authorized to set the minimum wage of migrant workers at 1,500 Malaysian Ringgit ($338), while the minimum income of prospective employers is 7,000 Malaysian Ringgit ($1,575). The minimum income of prospective employers has been determined to ensure workers are paid fairly. Besides, the workers will also receive their social security schemes in Indonesia and Malaysia.
The agreement also stated that one maid can only work in a household with not more than six people.
