Abstract

This paper relies on the global commodity chain framework and the standards of Decent Work laid out by the International Labour Organization to examine employment outcomes in export-oriented production in Indonesia. The empirical model investigates the extent to which industrial characteristics related to global production sharing explain variability in employment outcomes in the Indonesian manufacturing sector. The results suggest that export orientation, labor intensity, and female crowding negatively affect the likelihood of decent work outcomes. In addition, foreign direct investment has a positive affect, although it is overwhelmed by the other factors. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
