Abstract

The issue of the gender-based decent work deficit has relevance to policies, means of achieving fair, inclusive and sustainable development. Connecting decent work with the promotion of decent work through data mapping is believed to bring about positive changes at the public policy level. Data requirements are useful for understanding prevalence and working conditions, help increase the visibility of homeworkers and their contribution to the economy and form the basis of sustainable policy making and development. The research objective of mapping the conditions of self-employed home-based workers as an evidence base of promoting decent work for sustainable homeworkers. Methodology uses social mapping techniques, data collection through surveys, questionnaires. The results of a study conducted on 101 women homeworkers described the condition of women home-based workers who were self-reliant as contributing significantly to the economy of the family, society and the country. However, working in substandard conditions requires the efforts of various stakeholders, especially the government to recognize them as workers and strive towards addressing the decent work deficits faced by homeworkers. In promoting decent work, action must be taken regarding positive change at different levels including at the policy level. As the majority of homeworkers are women, promotion of decent work for homeworkers is an important area of work in improving the welfare of women in Indonesia. Contribution: evidence base and basis in the formulation and development of public policies.
