Boredom on the Assembly Line: Age and Personality Variables
Stagner, Ross
Industrial Gerontology, 2, 1, 23-44, W 75
Research shows wide differences in the way individuals react to paced, constrained jobs. Workers show increasing job satisfaction with age, but there are few older workers among assembly line operatives; perhaps they leave because of seniority, job change, or retirement. Aging, however, may make personalities more compatible with assembly line work. (Author/AJ)
