What Workers Want: Job Satisfaction In The U.S
By using the 2014 wave of the General Social Survey (GSS), this paper presents several determinants of job satisfaction. In a nutshell, U.S. workers prefer fair and respectful treatment by their employees, but not stress factors, such as working over-time or absence of home office arrangements. In terms of an employer friendly human resource strategy, especially the softer, or psychological determinants are rather cost-less to implement, but effective. In this analysis gender differences are rather weak.
