Varför lönearbeta?: En studie om två individers erfarenheter och värderingar kring arbetslivet
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this study is to describe how two wage-earners experience and value their work. I chose a descriptive reserch approach and I conducted a qualitative study in the form of two interviews. I have applied two well-known theories from the field of social psychology – the individualisation and Sence Of Coherence (SOC) – to enhance my arguments and to improve my comprehension in the subjekt.
The study reveals that my informants feel good and get motivated as wage-earners. By waged labor they feel securcity, meaningfullness, confirmation and belonging, which makes salaried work high valued. Even if my informants had unlimited financial resources, they would probably still be working, but perhaps in different ways than today.
