ABSTRACT
Conflicts on working compensation are mostly happen between workers and companies in the wood processing industry in Samarinda, East Kalimantan, and Indonesia. Workers want a higher wages, while the company paid it lower than the amount expected by the workers. The argument of the workers is that the wood processing industry should be paid on the basis of Sectorial Minimum Wage (Upah Minimum Sektoral), while the companies use District Minimum Wage (UpahMinimum Kab/Kota) as the payment basis. Based on this, this study was aimed to provide insight from academic point of view in settling down the discourses towards wood processing industries as leading sector in Samarinda. The result of this study showed that wood industries cannot be categorized as leading sector, and as the consequence the workers is being paid under District Minimum Wage basis.
