In this study the aim was to ascertain the effects of work values on pay satisfaction, organizational commitment, and turnover intention in a Chinese context. Pay satisfaction and work values were employed as determinants of organizational commitment and turnover intention. The mediating effect of pay satisfaction on work values and turnover intention was also examined. A total of 260 questionnaires were distributed to employees of selected multinational corporations in the semiconductor industry in Shanghai, in the People’s Republic of China. The results indicated that pay satisfaction led to greater organizational commitment and lower turnover intention. Participants also indicated that their work values significantly affect normative commitment and turnover intention through pay satisfaction.
