The Indonesian provinces are in process of releasing their minimum required monthly wages for the year 2019. These are called the UMP Indonesia and the UMK Bali.

Continue here to learn about the hefty penalties for employers who pay less than the legally required minimum wage.

UMP stands for “Upah Minimum Provinsi” or Provincial Minimum Wage. Indonesia has 34 provinces. A province is the highest level of the local government divisions in Indonesia. Each province sets their own UMP or minimum wage.

UMK Bali

Bali | nine regencies

UMK stands for “Upah Minimum Kabupaten/Kota” or Regency/City Minimum Wage. Every province has its own regencies for which Bali has nine.

The UMP and UMK for the year 2019 are calculated by the annual inflation and growth of the economy.

For 2018 the inflation fee was calculated at 3.72% and the growth of the economy at 4.99%. That gave a minimum raise of wages of 8.03% in comparison to 2018.

Continue here to see the Indonesia minimum wage (Indonesia UMP) history over the previous years.

Ultimately, the minimum wage of the regencies (Denpasar, Tabanan …) should be higher than the minimum wage of the province (Bali).

The minimum wage is based on 40 hours of work per week and can either be;

  • 7 hours per day and 40 hours per week for 6 days of work per week.
  • 8 hours per day and 40 hours per week for 5 days of work per week.
