  • [Title] Caring labour, intersectionality and worker satisfaction: an analysis of the National Nursing Assistant Study (NNAS).
  • Caring labour in long-term care settings is increasingly important as the US population ages.
  • Ethnographic research on nursing assistants (NAs) portrays nursing home care as routine and fast paced in facilities that emphasise life maintenance more than care.
  • Recent interview-based and small quantitative studies describe a mix of positive and negative aspects of NA work, including the rewards of caring, despite shortcomings in working conditions and pay.
  • The current study continues this research but, for the first time, using national data.
  • The 2004 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Nursing Assistant Study (NNAS) provides survey data from 3,017 NAs working in long-term care facilities across the US.
  • The NNAS results confirm the importance and centrality of caring to NAs' work.
  • NAs motivated by caring for others were significantly more satisfied with their jobs than those motivated by other reasons, such as convenience or salary.
  • Overall, NAs report surprisingly high job satisfaction, particularly with learning new skills, doing challenging work, and organisational support for caring labour.
  • Areas of dissatisfaction were salary, time for reproductive labour, and turnover.
  • Intersectional analysis revealed race and citizenship played a stronger role than gender in worker satisfaction.
