Abstract

Planning or already owning a sea cucumber farming business in the Riau Islands does not always run smoothly, even though the price of sea cucumbers in domestic and foreign markets such as the Singapore market is expensive. residents failed to try because of lack of knowledge. The managers earn an average income of 1 to 1.5 million/harvest from 500 sea cucumbers that are produced/harvested. Managers will earn between 4 to 4.5 million from 1000 sea cucumbers produced/harvested. Same with the income of the company's leaders in the city. Independent workers and those who work in groups receive a wage of Rp. 1,500,000/500 sea cucumbers or Rp. 3,000/head to clean the entrails and skin. Each group has 9 workers so each of them will receive an income of Rp. 167,000/harvest activity or per 500 sea cucumbers. If workers are able to clean 1000 sea cucumbers in a maximum of 3-4 hours the manager pays IDR 3,000,000 for 9 people, equal to a wage of Rp. 333.333/person. The 2021 UMP (Provincial Minimum Wage) is Rp. 3,005,383 per month. Therefore, workers in the sea cucumber business are able to earn more than the UMP. As a result, the development of the sea cucumber business has had a positive impact on the economy of Benan Village. Whereas before there was a sea cucumber business. Workers at the company receive wages in accordance with the 2021 UMP, which is 3,005,383 and can be more than the UMP.
