To that 178 workers participated in the state of Sao Paulo, of which most were also students, and the rest were workers of a metallurgical industry. The results showed significant positive correlations between the dimensions of ESUL with the factors of EST, with the increase in labor support responded to an increase in job satisfaction. It were also compared the extreme groups formed according to the EST, and observed that the dissatisfied people in all the factors of EST showed the lowest scores in labor support, compared to the group of subjects satisfied, and these differences were statistically significant.
