Abstract: This study arose to identify how and where factory workers select their reference groups; ascertain if the reference members of the factory workers induce evaluation responses that probably lead to attitude of job satisfaction or dissatisfaction. Through a multistage sampling technique, two hundred and five (205) factory workers were sampled from selected Glaxosmithkline and Tower Aluminium factories in Lagos/Ogun state, Nigeria. Questionnaire and in-depth interviews were utilized to generate quantitative and qualitative data respectively. Consequently the analysis of data was based on quantitative and qualitative analysis. The finding revealed among other things that the respondents varied in their socio-economic and demographic characteristics such as sex, age, educational attainment, years of working experience, marital status, job position religious background and income. The study showed that respondents chose their reference members from their relatives, friends, colleagues and boss. Also most respondents agreed that referents members had commented about their place of work. On job satisfaction, the study showed that most respondents were satisfied with achievement and recognition but dissatisfied with supervision, company policies and salaries. Hypotheses tested showed that most respondents selected reference group members from non-factory; that the feeling of job satisfaction or dissatisfaction among factory workers was a function of level of comparison with referent members; that most factory workers do not change members of reference group as they progressed in the factory. Anchoring the explanation of the research findings on equity and social action perspectives, the study recommended that that there is need to review human resources policy of the organizations and, in formulating policies towards job satisfaction, the management should always consider the different needs and aspirations of categories of employees. Most importantly, there is an urgent need for management to encourage social researches on the socio-psychological aspects of the factory workers in order to change their attitudes to work and to social pressures.

Abstract: Background: The current study aimed to investigate factory workers’ mental health, to examine the level of job satisfaction, and to identify the dimension of job satisfaction that influences mental health. Method: In October 2008, a survey was conducted with 173 factory workers to investigate their mental health with the General Mental Health Questionnaire consisting of 28 items (GHQ-28). The job satisfaction component of the survey, developed for this study, evaluated 5 domains of job satisfaction: (1) pay, (2) work security, (3) co-worker, (4) supervision, and (5) promotion opportunity. Frequency, mean, standard deviation, correlation and multiple linear regression analysis were used for the data analysis. Results: The results revealed that 33.5% of the workers had poor mental health, with anxiety and insomnia at the highest level (29.5%), followed by somatic symptoms (28.9 %), social dysfunction (23.7%), and severe depression (12.1 %). The results from correlation analysis indicated that the overall job satisfaction was negatively related to somatic symptoms, anxiety and insomnia, social dysfunction, and total GHQ scores. Regarding the relationships between psychological symptoms and the 5 dimensions of job satisfaction, severe depression had a negative relation only with work security. On the other hand, work security had the highest negative relation with somatic symptoms, anxiety and insomnia, and social dysfunction. Moreover, the findings from multiple regression analysis indicated a significant negative correlation between independent variables of overall job satisfaction (β = -330) and work security (β = -.303) and the dependent variable of GHQ-28 scores. Thus increased overall job satisfaction and increased work security were related to better mental health. Conversely, lower overall job satisfaction and work security were related to poorer mental health.Conclusions: The findings indicate the relationship between job satisfaction and mental health. Organizations can focus on improving employee overall job satisfaction which can influence their employees positive mental health.

Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2012.52020
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the social dimension as a factor which affects service workers’ job satisfaction and the relationship between their job satisfaction and positive affectivity. This study surveyed 450 flight attendants of a major global airline. The results suggest that job satisfaction of flight attendants consists of four main factors: job itself (job motivation, job characteristic, authority, and responsibility), job environment (working condition, supervision, and coworkers), organizational characteristics (wage and employment stability, promotion, and organizational policy), and social dimension (occupational prestige, organizational reputation, and corporate social responsibility). The results also show that flight attendants’ job satisfaction significantly affects their positive affectivity. These results imply that the service organizations such as airline companies need to pay close attention to the social dimension as a factor of job satisfaction to improve service performance.

Abstract: Introduction: Job stress can result from an imbalance between job demands and the abilities to cope them. Stress can affect individuals and lead to job dissatisfaction. This study was conducted to assess the influence of different job stress dimensions on job satisfaction in workers of a refinery control room located at the south of Iran. Materials & Methods: In this cross sectional study all 100 workers of an oil refinery control room were studied. Job stress and job satisfaction was measured using standard questionnaires provided by national institute of mental health (NIMH) and Robbins respectively. After collecting, data were analyzed using SPSS ver.16 software. A general linear model was used to estimate the effect of different job stress dimensions on the job satisfaction. Results: In this study 62.08 percent of workers were categorized as having high level of stress. In job satisfaction case, 9.2, 27.6, 28.7, 16.1 and 18.4 of workers were classified as totally dissatisfied, dissatisfied, not satisfied nor dissatisfied, satisfied and totally satisfied, respectively. A Pearson correlation test revealed a significant negative correlation between job satisfaction and all studied dimensions of job stress (p= 0.01). In the general regression model, partial Eta squared was 0.03, 0.3 and 0.23 for respectively interpersonal relationships, physical conditions of work and job interest. Conclusion: This study showed that job satisfaction is mostly influenced by physical conditions and job interest dimensions of job stress. Therefore, for improvement of job satisfaction in workers, different parameters of these two dimensions of job stress should be considered.

Rect@ , 2008,
Abstract: The accuracy of the match in the job-worker pairing is analyzed both in terms of education and in terms of qualification using Spanish data from the 2001 wave of the European Community Household Panel (ECHP). Regarding the incidence of mismatch situations, the results suggest that the education match appears to be a rather poor indicator for the qualification match. In addition, ordered discrete choice models reveal that they have different consequences in terms of job satisfaction as well.
