Further lack of planning.

Lack of long-term goals.

In addition to the lack of long-term planning and insufficient savings, low salaries are another major issue that affects the day-to-day living of many Indonesians. With the cost of living constantly rising, many people find it difficult to make ends meet with their current salaries.

According to data from the International Labor Organization, the minimum wage in Indonesia ranges from IDR 1.4 million to IDR 4.4 million per month, depending on the province. However, many Indonesians earn less than this amount, especially those working in informal or low-skilled jobs.

Low salaries.

Low salaries not only make it harder for Indonesians to save money, but they also limit their ability to invest in their future. Without enough income, it’s challenging to pay for education, start a business, or even afford basic necessities like healthcare and housing.

This can lead to a significant impact on the day-to-day living of Indonesians. Many people are forced to live in overcrowded and substandard housing, making it challenging to maintain good health and well-being. Moreover, those who work in low-paid jobs may be unable to afford proper nutrition, which can result in malnutrition and related health issues.

Attitude towards life.

Low salaries can also affect mental health and overall well-being. Financial stress can lead to anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. In some cases, people may feel trapped in their current situation with no hope of improving their circumstances, leading to feelings of hopelessness and despair.

In conclusion, low salaries are a significant issue that affects the day-to-day living of many Indonesians. With the cost of living constantly rising, it’s essential for Indonesians to prioritize long-term planning, savings, and financial management to improve their financial situation. Additionally, government policies and support programs can play a crucial role in ensuring fair wages and improving the standard of living for all Indonesians. By addressing these issues, we can create a more equitable and prosperous society where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
