Indonesia is a developing country that having millions of people who need jobs. The factories also need workers. There are many large-scale or household scale factories. The need for workers is also diverse, ranging from workers who work in the formal or informal fields. With varied job opportunities, children were tucked among adult workers. The ability of child workers are inadequate because they do not have the same expertise as adults who have formal school background. Formal school as the prerequisite in getting job is not being met because school hours are usually conducted during working hours. The children who work are also unable to stay in schools to improve their education level. Although education bureau prepared many programs like Packet A, B, and C, they are still often unattractive to child workers. The reasons are: the locations are often too far from home and the workplace so transportation costs are quite large and children usually work because of economic factors. The second reason is because the days and hours of final exams are often held during working hours. They cannot leave their jobs just because they will not be able to earn money for a few days during the exams. Child labor is unskilled worker and usually placed in a position that does not require specific skills. But the position which does not require a lot of skills is often in hazardous places. Underage workers cannot be included in workers list in the company because it would break the rules of law. When the name of the child labor is not in the list of names of the workers, the rights of workers who should be accepted will not be obtained. The elimination of those rights includes occupational safety and health. The child‘s future, therefore, is threatened.
