Abstract:

Questionnaire data were obtained from 149 enlisted men in the U.S. Navy. The job scope JS - satisfaction with the work itself SWI relationship was examined for the studys total sample and for subsamples created by grouping individuals on the basis of their belief in the Protestant Ethic PE. It was hypothesized and found that the JS-SWI relationship was positive and significantly different from zero for the studys total sample and each of the three PE subsamples. Contrary to one of the studys hypotheses, PE did not moderate the JS-SWI relationship. The studys results were discussed in terms of their implications for theory and practice relating to job design.
