This study aimed to investigate the effect of the household education, income, parents’ age, and number of dependents on the child’s working hour in Makassar City. The data were collected from 100 respondents using survey and the data were analyzed with multiple regression analysis technique. The results found that the parent’s education and income negatively and significantly predicted working hours among child labors.
