Madurese people are well known as hard workers. The reality, however, does not represent it. It is indicated by one of the communities in Pamekasan and Sumenep regencies. Most of the inhabitants' profession is a beggar who is practiced from generation to generation. Being a beggar is the worst type of jobs for children because it devastates infants psychologically and exploits them as well. They have the same rights to grow both physically and mentally and to meet their fundamental rights. The research used empirical methods, with a factual approach, and descriptive qualitative designs to analyze the selected data. The economic background is not the only contributing factor why they beg, but also the descent profession does. When their parent succeeded in the given job, then they occupy the position later. Being a beggar in a labor law context is the worst job for children because it is a children exploitation. This is the local government’s obligation to guarantee to provide the children’s rights and to protect them from exploitation. Through the Kyai(religious priest) extension, the government has socialized the children's rights and the importance of education and thus strongly encouraged them to enroll in Madrasah (Islamic elementary school). Furthermore, livestock is offered but seemed to be ineffective. The government also builds the parents, children, and societies’ awareness to meet the legal protection of children achieved.
