Job Satisfaction Among Contemporary Korean Women
The article analyses job satisfaction among contemporary Korean women in correlation with the respondents’ age group. The examined aspects relate to wage levels, working conditions, working hours, and responsibilities. The results indicate that the respondents’ age group has a significant impact on job satisfaction in the aspects under review. The independence test X2 (chisquare) has been applied and the Cramér’s coefficient V and the materiality level (p) have been interpreted. The analysed data are derived from the Korean Longitudinal Survey of Women and Family (KLoWF) of 2007 (Wave 1) and 2016 (Wave 6). Changes in satisfaction are evident in all analysed aspects, in the context of a comparative analysis of both waves. The analysis demonstrated that contemporary Korean women had little job satisfaction in the surveyed aspects in 2016. However, in 2007, the majority did not have any opinion on the subject. The greatest differences in satisfaction relate to working conditions, working hours, and responsibilities. The slightest difference (although still significant) was observed in the wage satisfaction analysis.
