Abstract

The conjunction of the post-modern condition, globalization, a fluid society, information technologies, and competitive pressures may influence political trust, job precariousness, and employee and organizational outcomes. An important question is whether events and changes at the macro level (e.g., events that shape political trust) spill over to the micro level (e.g., events that affect supervisor trustworthiness, job satisfaction). This study examines a set of relationships among political trust, job precariousness, supervisor trustworthiness, job satisfaction, and organizational citizenship behaviors in China, Germany, Mexico, and the United States. Findings show effects of political trust and job precariousness on supervisor trustworthiness, job satisfaction, and organizational citizenship behaviors. Results are discussed, and suggestions for future research are presented.
