dc.description.abstractThe impact of wage increases on job satisfaction is explored. First, it is empirically confirmedthat current job satisfaction rises with the absolute wage level as well as with wage increases.Second, a basic job satisfaction function is constructed based on the empirical results, andtheoretical implications are analyzed. Myopic maximization of such a function directlyimplies increasing and concave shaped wage profiles. It is shown that employees getunhappier over time staying on a certain job although wages increase, which again isempirically confirmed.en_US
