Abstract or Summary
  • This study examined job satisfaction levels between employed single women and employed married women. The specific objectives of the study were: (1) to investigate differences in the level of job satisfaction between employed single women and employed married women- (2) to investigate the factors whicn influence the level of job satisfaction according to each marital status. The data used in this study included 1 653 white working women from 527 (32 percent) single women and 1 126 (68 percent) married women interviewed for the National Longitudinal Survey of Work Experience of Young Women in 1980. Statistical analyses of the data were conducted using the t-test, the two-way ANOVA, and a stepwise multiple regression. At the p < .05 level there was significant difference in Overall Job Satisfaction between employed single women and employed married women by using the t-test. For two-way ANOVA four different job satisfaction measures were used as dependent variables which were Overall Job Satisaction, Intrinsic and Extrinsic Rewards, Job Skill, and Safety and Health Condition. (1) Wage rate was positively related to the Intrinsic and Extrinsic Rewards measure. (2) Occupation was positively related to all four job satisfaction measures. Two-way interaction between marital status and occupation was found on the Overall Job Satisfaction measure and the Job Skill measure. (3) Education was negatively related to the Intrinsic and Extrinsic Rewards measure. (4) Work experience was significant for the Intrinsic and Extrinsic Rewards measure and Safety and Health Condition measure. (5) Unionization was negatively related to the Job Skill measure. Using stepwise multiple regression, none of the variables significantly related to the Overall Job Satisfaction measure. However, the order of variables as they were entered in the model differed for employed single women and employed married women The results of this study provide base line data for determining job satisfaction of working women between single and married.
