Abstract: Few researches on pay satisfaction in non-profit-making or public organizations have been conducted in the past. This is especially true in non-western countries. With particular interests of testing the validity of the commonly known relationships between four important cluster antecedents of pay satisfaction, namely salary level, perceived personal job inputs, perceived job characteristics, social comparison, and the two dimensions of pay satisfaction as defined by H. G. Heneman and D. P. Schwab (1985), namely pay level satisfaction and fringe benefits satisfaction, in a non-profit-making organization in a non-western society, based on Adam's (1963) equity theory and Lawler's (1971) discrepancy theory, a newly proposed theoretical model is introduced in the study. By conducting a survey with a sample of 423 administrative, managerial and professional staff in The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the results of the study provide a very contradictory picture to the previous literatures. It is therefore noted that factors like different nature and culture of the organizations and different socio-economic contexts will moderate and affect the relationships between pay satisfaction and its antecedents.
