Using the data from summary statistics related to rate of pay and length of employment, 95% confidence intervals were obtained.  Years of employment confidence interval is (4.5), (4.8) and the confidence interval for rate of pay is (21.69), (26.45).  Unfortunately hypothesis testing was not completed as the sample did not meet requirements for testing. 


In conclusion there is not sufficient data to indicate that rate of pay influences level of satisfaction.  As show in the below bar graph the mean rate of pay for those reporting that they are unsatisfied is 30 where as those reporting satisfaction is slightly lower at 28
