Abstract

There are lots of studies conducted in Karabuk province, one of the most important iron-steel manufacturing center in Turkey, and the developing iron-steel sector in this province. However, the privatization of the national iron-steel factory, KARDEMIR, the establishment of Karabuk University and the like, have been causing rapid mental transformations which activate the transformations in iron-steel sector. Especially, the training programs for workers which have been practiced in Karabuk University and The Institute of Iron and Steel founded in Karabuk University indicate that this ongoing transforming process would continue rapidly and favorably. As a result, renewing the studies about the iron-steel sector in Karabuk periodically is a must. In this article, the socio-economic conditions of workers employed in iron-steel sector, their work satisfactions, their visions about iron-steel sector and the like varieties are examined empirically.
