This study looks at drivers' opinions about specific areas of their work and how important these areas are to their job satisfaction. Management's perceptions are compared to drivers' opinions. Job satisfaction is theoretically linked to driver productivity, turnover, new entrants, and few drivers exiting the industry. In addition, reducing turnover has been shown elsewhere to have positive impacts on safety.
