The Instrumentally Oriented Factory Worker: Myth or Reality?
Loscocco, Karyn A.
Work and Occupations: An International Sociological Journal, v16 n1 p3-25 Feb 1989
The work values of 3,637 factory workers are examined. Results indicate that (1) the value placed on types of rewards is affected by general values and perceptions of needs; (2) workers tend to value what is most available from work; and (3) factory workers are not necessarily instrumentally oriented to work.
