Abstract : This military thesis investigated the relationship of race to job satisfaction by examining factors considered to be determinants of job satisfaction among military enlistees. The study analyzed black, hispanic and white enlistees in all four branches of service. Bivariate analysis, factor analysis and regression analysis was performed to determine the effect of race on those factors considered to be determinants of job satisfaction. The results of the analysis indicated that race was a significant effect on the determination of job satisfaction. An understanding of the effect of race to factors that determine individual's satisfaction will give military policymakers greater opportunities for control over behaviors such as enlistment and retention.
