Abstract

This study examined the pay-life satisfaction relationship and the moderating influence of breadwinner role salience among a sample of Hong Kong Chinese professional and managerial employees (N = 255). The results of zero-order correlational and moderated regression analysis revealed support for the pay-life satisfaction relationship. The interaction term of pay satisfaction by breadwinner role salience made a significant but rather modest contribution to the explained variance in life satisfaction and this finding was not gender-specific. Results of a subgroup analysis also revealed that the pay-life satisfaction relationship was significant among the low breadwinner role salience group but was nonsignificant among the high breadwinner role salience group. In general, the findings highlight the importance of breadwinner role salience to employees' reactions to the economic conditions of work.
