The statistically significant independent variables that justify the reason of job satisfaction are YEARS IN SHIFT WORK SCHEDULE, ANNUAL SALARY, AGE and YEARS OF EDUCATION. Said variables are identified through the calculation of the t-statistics that went beyond the critical values and the p-values that were calculated from that point to less than the significance level of 5%. The relationship between Job Satisfaction and Years in Shift Work Schedule is positive: the greater the job satisfaction, the higher the accumulation of years spent working on shift schedule.
