Job satisfaction is one of the most heavily researched employee attitudes over the last 50 years. Studies have shown that job satisfaction is a multidimensional construct consisting of intrinsic job satisfaction and extrinsic job satisfaction. Several studies indicate that has been a substantial increase of migrant workers entering the UK economy, particularly since opening of the European Union (EU). Although there is classical literature on job satisfaction, but existing literature on job satisfaction in relation to migrant workers is not adequately addressed What Keeps Migrant workers going? The objective of the research is to undertake a quantitative analysis by distributing survey questionnaires to samples of selected migrant worker respondents (n=30 out of 60). The respondents will be selected by using a Respondent-Driven Random Sampling (RDRS). For the purpose of the study Pearson correlation and step-wise multiple regression used find out relationship among the variables and test the Hypothesis. The overall findings indicate that migrant workers seem to have a higher level of job satisfaction. The finding shows that migrant workers seem less affected by working conditions. In this sense, although they do not enjoy working in the company owing to reported higher shift work and less influence on the situation at work, in general, they have a higher level of job satisfaction. This means that migrant workers can be 'satisfied', even if they are not working in their chosen profession and seem to have a positive attitude and adjustment toward their work.
