Another assumption is that women often took jobs for the wrong reasons (Gunn and Gullickson, 2007). That statement suggests that Karen’s gender may have been the reason she did not recognize her motivator instead of the fact that she may have just never thought about it. If a person obtains a job that will not gratify their main motivator then that person will be unsatisfied with their job. By making this assumption the article also implies that most women are not satisfied at work .Even though assumptions are drawn from this article, there are a few hypotheses made by the Pursuit of Unhappiness. Hypotheses, Variable, and Operational Definitions One hypothesis
The employees may feel a certain way about the layoff of the co-workers and also it may effect how they work. Also another thing is the loss of valuable and knowledgeable employees may affect others too. The new hire people will have no one to ask if they do not understand or know how to perform a task asked of them. This can cause serious problems for productivity and for the patients at the clinic. The last disadvantage I think will be a problem to the Dodge Clinic is employees seeking employment elsewhere because they do not feel there job is secure.
Though John had sympathy for the family pressures she was facing, but her unpleasant behavior was affecting the efficiency of the entire team and the organization. On the other hand, Andy another employee with CES and a team member for the waste management committee, made it worse by creating negativity in the mind of Vincent on the very first day of his office. Vincent resigned his earlier job because of the internal politics and did not want the same issues again. Vincent tough tried in altering Gwen’s job description but knew she won’t be satisfied with that too. John’s inability to anticipate issues and take up steps to resolve the conflict arising due to the Vincent’s presence is harming the output of the organization.
She was unable to take clients to lunch because of how it would be perceived. A woman taking a man to lunch that may be married, would look unfavorable for the company.

The new team of managers did not recognise Jillian's special talents and seeing her as a new recruit and a recent graduate they treated her differently and regularly complained about her work results. Jillian became quite depressed but she continued on in her work and tried to accept this change in her life. When the economy took a downturn and despite all her past efforts and achievements, the company chose her for retrenchment. Jillian was devastated. For the first time in her life she found herself without a plan and she found it difficult to accept that even though she was hard working and a high achiever and despite having put a lot of effort and energy in her work, that she would be discarded easily by her new managers.
Where are the papers at that I told you to do about our financial issues? You looking dumb saying to yourself, I should have paid attention at the meeting yesterday. Now I am at risk of losing my job all because I did not pay attention in the meeting. The funny part is your boss fires you because you did not pay attention in the meeting.

Many women probably did not even know how to write because their were neglected from their studies or were probably always to busy doing what ever their husbands wanted them to do. Rich's life was different she knew something had to change and that is the main reason why she decided to write about it. I would consider her as a model to all the other women at the time, her essay should have been a way to encourage other women to get off their buts, stop washing dishes, stop having kids, get their life together and start studying! The sad part of this is that till this day not many women are being recognized for their hard studies, and it has been almost thirty four years since this has come out to the public. This failure to consider what women need from their college experience in order to succeed is, as Rich says, part of the old belief that women's primary goal is or should be marriage--and that "[t]oo much intelligence or intensity may make [them] unmarriageable" (215).
