This study is to demonstrate the effects of working hour on the workers` subjective well-being. Working hour, in this study, means working time per a day and the generosity of weekly holiday. Firstly, the effects of working hour on the worker`s well-being will be analyzed. Secondly, it will be investigated if the effects of working hour on the worker`s well-being change according to the existence of the family member who needs care. The results of the analysis show that longer working hour and the lower generosity of weekly holiday decrease workers` well being. If workers have family member who needs care, the effects of working hour and the generosity of weekly holiday on the worker`s well-being are not significant. It contrasts to the result that women are more satisfactory to their lives than men in cases they don`t have family member who needs care. It is supposed that these results are closely related with the enormous gender gap of care time in Korea.
