Non-regular employees account for more than one third of total employees in Japan. This study investigates how the financial burden of a household influences the work-related satisfaction of non-regular employees, using data collected from 9,790 working persons in the Tokyo metropolitan area. The results show that the effect of a head of a household factor on work-related satisfaction is different depending on gender. While this factor does not produce a significant difference between the satisfaction of regular and non-regular male employees, it is an influential factor for female employees. Analysis of married employees revealed that one’s own annual income has a significant effect on regular employees’ satisfaction, and that the annual income of one’s spouse significantly influences non-regular employees’ satisfaction.
