    Solution Summary

    According to Herzberg's Two-Factor Theory of motivation, an employee may be dissatisfied on the job if he does not receive an adequate salary. Receiving an adequate salary won't necessarily make him motivated or satisfied with his job. Some aspects of this job may lead to job satisfaction, such as his interest in personal growth, recognition, responsibility and having interesting work.
