Comparison of Organizational Membership and Self-Employment.
Fine, Barry Dov
In this study survey data from a national sample representative of the United States work force were used to compare 1,092 members (one who works for someone else who employs ten or more other persons) and 183 nonmembers (self-employed workers who employ no more than nine others). The study aimed at ascertaining whether or not membership in work organizations has consequences for individuals that differ from those of nonorganizational work. The dependent variables measured were psychological outcomes at the individual level and include job satisfaction, role strain, and dimensions of mental health. (Author)
