The study explores the worker’s perception with respect to their compensation structure. The current study tries to explore the various dimensions associated with the compensation structure and other job related variables and personal variables. This empirical study tries to probe the relationship between pay satisfaction and the level of motivation exhibited by workmen in manufacturing industries. Similarly the role played by personal variables such as age, tenure on the job, and their association with pay satisfaction is also undertaken. The study is carried out in North Karnataka in cities like Belgaum, Hubli, Dharwad, Bijapur, Bagalkot, Gadag & Gulbarga. 384 contractual workmen across different manufacturing organizations were surveyed to find out the relationship between the various dimensions. The collected data was subjected to chi-square analysis and independent t test. The analysis revealed that there is a strong association between workmen age, nature of employment, motivational levels and their compensation structure. But, it was found out that there was no relationship between tenure on the job and pay satisfaction.
