Substance abuse and job attitude among hotel workers: Social labeling perspectives

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

17 Scopus citations


Results from a survey (n = 458) held in Eilat indicate that hospitality workers use substances much more than average rate in the general Israeli population. Based on a series of independent t-test samples utilized to examine the relationship between respondents' attitude toward their job and their recent substance use habits, we suggest that the correlation between these two variables should be examined in light of the social legitimacy associated with the substances in the environment surrounding the workers.
