difference in perceived fairness of pay, promotion and job satisfaction.
Besides, pay, and promotion have high significant contribution to the variance
of job satisfaction. Though not significant, some degree of job satisfaction
was explained by the linear regression of educational level. When ANOVA was
employed for the four variables: pay, promotion, educational level and sex,
surprisingly, the coefficient of determination reaches .81 (R2 = .81) indicating
the importance of the interaction of these variables.
Furthermore, males preferred good pay, opportunity to use 'one's skill or
creativity and job security more than other job characteristics, while females
preferred job security, good pay and interesting work in descending order.
