In addition to Transjakarta's free services, the Provincial Government of DKI Jakarta also provides subsidized basic commodities. The workers can shop at Jakgrosir which sells the price of basic necessities cheaper around 10-15 percent of the market price.

Another program that will provide a Jakarta Smart Card (KJP) for the children of workers whose salary of UMP. According to the former Minister of Education and Culture (Mendikbud), the Provincial Government of DKI Jakarta will allocate Rp 885 billion for food subsidies and Rp 560 billion for increasing the amount of KJP.

This policy received appreciation from the politicians of Gerindra Party of DKI Jakarta. "Anies Baswedan-Sandiaga Uno has given a good breakthrough related to UMP and pro-labor program," said Chairman of DPC Gerindra Party Jakarta Timur Adi Kurnia Setiadi in his press statement on Thursday (2/11).
According to him, Anies-Sandi's decision to establish UMP 2018 with a basis of 8.1 percent increase has become a middle ground. Because such a number will support middle-class entrepreneurs down, so as not to go out of business. "The value of the UMP signed by the governor I think the middle ground is reasonable," said Adi. "If the increase in UMP is too high can be inconvenient middle-low entrepreneurs," said Adi.
