Not only take care of households, women are also good at working outdoors. Even today many women prefer a career and put aside the household affairs. But in Indonesia there are still many women who are discriminated against in terms of employment, women are made up of second-class citizens and placed in the lowest job positions. The cigarette factory is a factory where most of its employees are women. Most of the women who work in cigarette factories make the job as the main livelihood in the family. Female workers in cigarette factories are placed in production for grinding and packing, the part being the lowest in the job classification in cigarette factories.
