Job satisfaction declines 'dramatically' for women, report says

Women's job satisfaction has declined "dramatically" over the past generation as they expect far more from their work, according to a report.

The expectation of female employees now more closely "matches reality" as they become less satisfied, said Lancaster University Management School.

In 1991 there was a significant "female satisfaction advantage", but this has changed and there is no difference in job satisfaction between men and women, said the report.

Co-researcher Professor Colin Green said: "Female workers in the 90s had lower expectations than their male counterparts and were simply more satisfied with a given set of working characteristics."
