In 2011, the state of Minnesota faced a difficult budgetary decision. At the time of this writing, the state HHS budget had been vetoed by the Governor and State Employees were preparing for a government shutdown. Disagreement between the Republican majority and the Democratic Governor on how to balance the state budget had serious implications for Community Action Agencies that received, on average, 10% of their annual funding from the State of Minnesota in 2010 (MNCAP, 2010). Considering the fact that budget cuts would be imminent, and raises and bonuses unlikely, the researcher wanted to provide CAAs of MN with information that might assist with recruitment and retention of its workforce based on what current employees identify as being satisfied or dissatisfied with in their current place of employment. Research Question: What do employees of Minnesota Community Action Agencies report as factors associated with their job satisfaction?
