This week's "World at Work," an occasional slideshow featuring economic events from around the world through the photography of Bloomberg News, photographer Dadang Tri looks at a textile factory in Sukoharjo, Java, Indonesia.

Indonesia is targeting economic expansion of 6.5 percent to 6.8 percent this year after gross domestic product rose 6.1 percent last quarter. In Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia and home to 10 million people, Governor Joko Widodo last year approved a 44 percent increase in minimum pay for workers, to 2.2 million rupiah ($226) a month. The national government is considering extending the plan across the country, which has the world’s fourth-largest population, after China, India and the U.S.
