Work Rewards, Job Satisfaction and Accreditation in Long Day Care.
Lyons, M. F.
Australian Journal of Early Childhood, v22 n3 p40-44 Sep 1997
Surveyed Australian child-care workers on job satisfaction. Found that although 80% indicated satisfaction with their job, 40% said they frequently thought of quitting. Found a past and projected turnover rate of about 30%; although workers' qualifications and skills base have increased significantly in the past decade, the accreditation process has not improved extrinsic job rewards.
