  • Abstract: Based on the 2004 Workplace Employment Relations Survey in the UK, this article reveals that only one third of the surveyed 5,000 long-tenured workers feel content with their job and pay although more than half reported to be satisfied with the work itself, their achievement and influence over the job.Long tenure has often been used as an indicator of a good job match and the job satisfaction of this type of worker is therefore assumed.  Since financial commitment and care duties constrain long-tenured workers' geographic mobility, this raises the question of how their satisfaction with pay may be increased. Furthermore, based on empirical evidence, the paper proposes that employers should take pay levels in the local labour market into account when conducting pay reviews for long-tenured workers.
