Abstract

This article examines the effects of job insecurity on employees’ financial well-being and work satisfaction. Based on a literature review on financial well-being, we proposed that financial well-being consists of two categories: personal financial well-being and family financial well-being. We developed a theoretical model that links job insecurity to employees’ personal and family financial well-being, and then to employees’ work satisfaction. Data were collected from 334 Chinese pink-collar workers in Macao. Results of the structural equation modeling showed that job insecurity negatively and significantly influenced employees’ personal financial well-being whereas employees’ personal financial well-being positively and significantly influenced work satisfaction directly and indirectly through employees’ family financial well-being. However, the direct relationships between job insecurity and employees’ family financial well-being and between job insecurity and work satisfaction were not significant.
