Abstract

This study aims to investigate and analyze the legal protection for uneducated and unskilled workers in employment relations from the perspective of Indonesian labor law. This research is normative legal research, and the qualitative method is used to produce descriptive data. The findings of this study conclude that the practice of labor relations for uneducated and unskilled workers is generally carried out in time work agreements and set minimum wages. A minimum wage is a form of protection from the government based on the need for a decent living and taking into account the variables of economic growth or inflation. The government must supervise the implementation of legal provisions in the labor sector in order to ensure the implementation of the normative rights of uneducated and untrained workers by opening up labor-intensive-based employment and increasing their competence through training and education programs. This study is expected to be used as a reference for the government, legislators, and other stakeholders to optimize legal protection for uneducated and unskilled workers in employment relations in Indonesia from the perspective of Indonesian labor law as mandated by the constitution, the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia (Undang-Undang Dasar or UUD 1945).
