Abstract:     
The impact of wage increases on job satisfaction are explored. First, it is empirically established that current job satisfaction rises with absolute wage level as well as with wage increases. Second, a basic job satisfaction function is constructed based on the empirical results, and theoretical implications are analyzed. It is shown that the myopic maximization of such a function directly implies increasing and concave shaped age-earnings profiles.
