The issue lies on imparity of the size of the labor force with the inadequacy of job vacancy which adds more problems to employment sector. The data from Badan Pusat Statistik show that unemployment is more prevalent among high school and university graduates than in diploma graduates. On the other hand, many entrepreneurs admit they have difficulties in finding prospective workers who are able to meet the desirable criteria. The existence of regulations that control foreign workers can be accommodated in order to overcome the need for more labor force. However, these regulations have to be examined further, since its existence should not under any circumstances reduce the opportunity of Indonesian labor forces to work in their own country. Solutions are required to overcome these problems. Each party can help reduce the high unemployment rate in Industrial Revolution 4.0.
