Investigated whether the nonmonetary aspects of job satisfaction are the same for unpaid workers as for paid workers, by comparing job satisfaction as reported by 135 kibbutz members working in industrial firms with that reported by 187 industrial employees from a similar industry in the private sector. Ss were administered an index of job satisfaction and the Job Descriptive Index. Results indicate that the nonpay factors were as clearly discriminated in an unpaid population as in a paid population, and the order of importance of the nonpay factors of job satisfaction was similar for both populations. The results of the Job Descriptive Index for the Israeli sample paralleled those of American samples, and it is suggested that the test can be used as a valuable tool in Israel.
