Non‐financial employment commitment: A cross‐national comparison

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The so‐called ‘lottery question’, asking, ‘Would you stop or continue working if there were no economic reasons to carry on working?’ was utilized to evaluate non‐financial employment commitment. Results of a representative sample of the labour force in seven countries (n = 8763) showed that between 68.8 per cent (in Great Britain) and 93.4 per cent (in Japan) of the workers indicated a desire to continue working. 1989 The British Psychological Society
