Tens of thousands of people are protesting in Indonesia against government plans to delay its planned increase of the minimum wage.

Said Iqbal, a union labour leader in Jakarta, the capital, told Al Jazeera on Wednesday that workers are continuing to demonstrate because they "need the government to implement a health insurance and pension system for all Indonesians".

Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen speaks to the workers demanding higher minimum pay and better employment benefits.
