The Effects of Personal Views Toward Work and Money of the Job Satisfaction and Organizational Commitment of Private Prison Staff

Eric Lambert, Ferris State University

ABSTRACT
Most of the research on the antecedents of correctional staff job satisfaction and organizational commitment focus on demographic characteristics and work environment factors. Little research has explored the impact of personal views toward work and money. Additionally, almost no research has explored the antecedents of the job satisfaction of private prison staff. Based upon survey data from staff at a private Midwestern prison, the impact of views of work and money are explored. The results will be presented and discussed.
