ABSTRACT
Small samples of white-collar and blue-collar employees were asked to describe sources of satisfaction and dissatisfaction on the job. These critical incidents were classified using the Schneider-Locke event--agent classification system. it was found, consistent with previous findings, that white-collar employees were more likely to derive satisfaction and dissatisfaction from "motivator" events (especially achievement/failure), and blue-collar employees from "hygienes" (especially money).
