Job Satisfaction of Developmentally Disabled Workers in Competitive Employment.
Judd, Patricia A.; And Others
The job satisfaction of 35 developmentally disabled workers (17 to 38 years old) placed into competitive employment over a 2.5 year period was assessed. The Job Satisfaction Survey which measures satisfaction with the job itself, with the work group, with the company, and with the pay and job status, was administered orally in structured interview sessions. Ss expressed a high degree of satisfaction with their jobs. A significant difference in satisfaction with pay existed between full-time and part-time workers, but no significant differences were evident (among subgroups categorized by age, sex, disability, work experience, and service/semi-skilled positions) regarding satisfaction with the work, the work groups, or the company.
