dc.description.abstractSubjective well-being is regarded as an important goal given the positive outcomes thereof for individuals. Job satisfaction is an important indicator of the subjective well-being of individuals. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the use of the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) for different language groups working in a chemical factory, and to investigate the relationship between job satisfaction and demographic variables. The study was carried out with a sample (N = 583) representing different job levels in a chemical factory. The 20-item MSQ and a biographical questionnaire were administered. The results confirmed that job satisfaction consists of two internally consistent factors, namely extrinsic and intrinsic job satisfaction. The factorial invariance of the MSQ was confirmed for African languages and an Afrikaans and English group. Language was the only demographic variable that statistically significantly predicted extrinsic job satisfaction. Intrinsic job satisfaction was statistically significantly predicted by two demographic variables, namely age and qualification.
