The Standard of Minimum Waging Policy according to constitution is less concerned to equitability and humanity. It is caused by the policy of constitution has not been oriented to the employees’ needs. The standard of minimum waging is described as the fulfillment of employees’ physical needs, although there has been a conceptual paradigm changing from Minimum Physical Requirements to Minimum Living Needs and Prosper Living Needs as the final stages. The minimum waging policy concerns much to the economic stability rather than to equitability and humanity. Economic stability will be stable if the employersexist and they will exist if the wages are low even it is formally legalized, although equitability and humanity are put aside. The purpose of the policy is not to prosper the employees, yet to prosper the employers. By stabilizing the existence of the employers, national economic and politic stability will be safe. The policy’s characteristics are placed in an unclear position which affect it to be far from the ideals of good constitution. The policy’s forms are to oppose between one policy to others which cause to the unclear meaning of minimum waging.
