    Im Zuge einer weitreichenden Flexibilisierung des deutschen Arbeitsmarkts verliert stabile, langfristige Beschaeftigung (geschlossene Beschaeftigungssysteme) zu Gunsten flexibler, atypischer Beschaeftigung (offene bzw. marktfoermige Beschaeftigungssysteme) zunehmend an Bedeutung. Insbesondere verzeichnet das Freelancing, das als Prototyp marktfoermiger Beschaeftigung gelten kann, eine starke Zunahme. Obwohl die Charakteristika verschiedener betrieblicher Beschaeftigungssysteme verschiedene Auswirkungen auf die Arbeitszufriedenheit der Beschaeftigten vermuten lassen, ist dieses Feld bislang weitgehend unerforscht. Aus diesem Grund wurde auf Basis des Zuercher Modells untersucht, ob sich fuer Freelancer und Festangestellte verschiedener Einkommensklassen unterschiedliche Arbeitszufriedenheitstypen ermitteln lassen. Die Studie zeigt, dass die Unterscheidung zwischen hohem und niedrigem Einkommen insbesondere fuer die Arbeitszufriedenheit in marktfoermigen Systemen von grosser Relevanz ist. (In recent years, the number of atypical employment relationships (market-based employment systems) has increased in the German labor market at the same time as the number of regular employment relationships (closed employment systems) has declined. Freelancing, the prototypical market-based employment form, has particularly grown in importance. Even though different organizational employment systems are likely to affect work satisfaction, to date little research has been conducted in this area. The paper seeks to fill this research gap by analyzing whether freelancers and regular employees of different income classes show different types of job satisfaction in terms of the Zurich Model. The results show that the difference between high and low income jobs is especially relevant for job satisfaction in market-based systems.)
