Abstract
The birth of Mobile internet is not only promoting the technological process, but also changing everyone’s life. The most important of these changes is that mobile internet can bring more Guanxi to people that love social network. This study first investigates determinants of job satisfaction and then examines if mobile internet is connected with better job satisfaction. Unlike previous studies that focus on traditional factors, this paper pays more attention to mobile internet. We put usage time and content of social media as proxy for mobile internet. Based on the Surveys of 686 migrant workers, we find that mobile internet can promote migrant workers’ job satisfaction through information and social capital. Regress result shows that mobile internet can improve job satisfaction within a certain value range. Particularly, to the female of new generation in migrant workers this impact is greater. The results of this paper thus urge people to care for new factors of job satisfaction in migrant workers.
