Job Satisfactions and Work Values for Women.
Blai, Boris, Jr.
This survey investigates relationships between the work values of 1,871 women with certain demographic variables in order to provide planning and counseling information for educational and other institutions. The work values--defined by Eyde (1962)--are expressed needs for: dominance-recognition, economic success, independence, interesting activity, mastery-achievement, and social status. Demographic variables linked with work values are marital status, age, educational attainment, current employment status, career pattern, socio-economic status, and field of work. Tabulations comparing work values with the demographic variables indicate that the central reason women work is for mastery-achievement, and that this reason is closely followed by social need fulfillment. Another important work value, one closely associated with social opportunities, is the interest generated by the activity. The value of independence appears relatively moderate compared with the others. On the other hand, the two least important work values indicated were the achievement of dominance or recognition, and economic success. (JO)
