Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the relationship between job insecurity, job satisfaction, and life satisfaction. We compared two groups of Korean workers (N = 400) and Japanese workers (N = 805). The survey was conducted by an on-line research institute registered monitor that sent questionnaire to workers. As a result, Job insecurity differ significantly by income in Japan, and it differ significantly by length of service in Korea. Multiple regression analyses find that job insecurity relates to job satisfaction in Japan meanwhile life satisfaction relates to job insecurity in both country Japan and Korea. Given these results and trends towards increasing frequency of insecure jobs, attention needs to be paid to the work well-being of job insecurity.
