dc.description.abstractThis study addresses the question, "Why are there differences in the levels and determinants of job satisfaction among workers?" Two contrasting theoretical explanations, the gender socialization and the dualist approaches, are examined. Data are analyzed from two highstatus, service occupations, law and human service work. Limited support is found for either approach suggesting that gender and dual-sector status are not responsible for differences in the levels and determinants of job satisfaction. New directions for future research are considered that combine individual and structural factors. First, instead of focusing on gender socialization, future research should investigate the impact that occupational socialization has on job satisfaction. Second, a new reconceptualization of the dualists' core-periphery distinction, based on occupation rather than firm status, may prove more useful in examining the effects of job rewards on job satisfaction.
