The authors review the history of job satisfaction research as it relates to truck drivers and truck driver turnover. Job satisfaction, particularly the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire, has played a major role in driver turnover research over the past 25 years. But the relationship between truck drivers as subjects and job satisfaction as a concept goes much deeper than that and has a much longer history. This article addresses that history and puts that aspect of driver research into historical context.
