Equal pay for male and female workers for work of equal value refers to the
value of wages determined without discrimination based on sex. The rule is written in
ILO Convention No. 100 on Equal Remuneration Convention. Even though this
regulation is regulated, in reality women workers still earn 23% lower wages than
men workers. Global data released by UN Women also shows that there is an
estimated 16% gender pay gap of which women only get 77 cents of the 1 dollar earned
by men for work of the same value.
The purposes of this study are : First, to find out the legal arrangements
regarding the protection of equal wages between male and female in terms of the ILO
Convention No. 100, Second, to determine the implementation of equal pay between
male and female workers in Indonesia, and Third, to determine the forms of gender
inequality in providing wages to female workers in Indonesia. The author conducted
this research using a normative research method or library research which discusses
the level of synchronization of legal regulations in Indonesia with the ILO Convention
No. 100 on Equal Remuneration Convention.
From the research problems above, there are 3 main things that can be
concluded. First, the legal arrangements regarding wage protection are contained in
international conventions. Spesifically regarding the equality of wages between male
and female, it is regulated in the ILO Convention No. 100 on Equal Remuneration
Convention, Second, the implementation constraints regarding the provision of wages
come from a lack of understanding of awareness about the right to receive wages as
part of human rights as a whole and several supporting factors can the occur through
technical obstacles, and Third, the form of injustice that occurs in the provision of
wages to female workers is the gender pay gap and labeling (stereotype).
