The current analysis was structured to identify the impact of socioeconomic factors (age, education, employment status, head of household income and no. of dependents) on work satisfaction and earning of women in D.G. Khan, the city of southern Punjab of an underdeveloped area of Pakistan. Primary data was collected via distributing 450 questionnaires, 320 useable responses were available for analyses. Simple descriptive analysis, OLS method and logit model was used to analyze the data. Result revealed that age, education level, employment status and head of household or husband’s monthly income level have significant impact on women’s work satisfaction, while number of dependents negatively manipulated on work satisfaction. This study contributes to reveal the socioeconomic determinants for job satisfaction of women working in underdeveloped areas of Pakistan while identifying main constraints facing by such women to participate in labor market. There is food for thought for government and non-government organizations to define the policies for development of such working women who are working in deprived areas of Pakistan.
