Abstract

Compared the job expectancies of 76 culturally advantaged and 74 disadvantaged female civil service clerical workers concerning whether effective job performance would lead to certain job rewards and the relative importance or valences of these rewards to the 2 groups. The disadvantaged group saw for themselves, as opposed to the advantaged group, less likelihood that effectiveness in their jobs would lead to advancement or to the use of one's own judgment. The disadvantaged group also indicated that a high salary was more important to them than to the advantaged group. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
