This study was designed to investigate the work lives of child laborers with respect to their gender and age. The test results showed that a meaningful relationship existed between working children's gender and the way they spent their income, having work accidents, the presence of noise at the workplace, sufficient safety at the work place, the job to be done, and having the master demonstrate the job first (p<0,05). Likewise, a meaningful relationship was found between the c-working children's age and their years of work, the presence of noise at the workplace, and health conditions at the work place (p<0,05).
