Job Satisfaction
74
Thu, 01-14-2010 - 10:21am

I have seen reports in various news sources talking about a study that states that job satisfaction is a low. The reporters all seem to be surprised at the study. Their thinking is that in a bad economy those that have jobs should be grateful for job satisfaction should be up.

I totally agree with the reasoning that job satisfaction would be down in a bad economy for a few reasons:

1. In a good economy those that are not satisfied with their jobs have more options to change jobs than in a bad economy.

2. Employers know that and can put on more work load etc since it is very unlikely for that employer to leave.

3. Sometime when companies are hurting they will purposely make things harder on employees. It is much better for their bottom line to have someone leave on their own (or with cause) that to have to pay a severance package for layoff.

Your thoughts.

Do you feel that it's a causal effect (i.e., if I'm happy with my marriage then it causes me to be happy with my job) or a correlational effect (i.e., I'm happy with both my marriage and my job, but it's because I simply have an overall positive attitude)?

Generally speaking and IMO I have not found that correct.

A co-worker where DH worked in the past put in 16-18 hours days routinely. The company told him that he needed to cut back because it was too much and he would burn out. He confided in DH that the reason that he worked those hours was because he did not want to go home. He was much happier in his work life than in his home life.
