The Meaning of Working Survey, with the constructs of work centrality, societal work norms, and valued work outcomes, was completed by 170 workers. They did not view work as central, but as a constraint or reciprocal arrangement. They valued benefits and wages over intrinsic outcomes. Cluster analysis revealed that work meanings were related to external outcomes. (Contains 47 references.) (SK)
