Pay satisfaction and work-family conflict across time
Conference Proceeding Article
The article examines the relationship between pay satisfaction and work-family conflict (WFC), which is shown to be moderated by the number of dependents and educational attainment. Changes in global pay satisfaction were found to be negatively related to a change in WFC. It is suggested that if employees are dissatisfied with their pay, it indicates they are experiencing inequity on account of the perceived discrepancy between what they feel they should be receiving and what they are actually paid. By drawing on spillover theory, it is also suggested that feelings of pay dissatisfaction will likely transfer to the family domain and increase perceptions of higher WFC.
