Abstract

This study adopts an identity strain perspective to understand migrant workers' turnover. We found that migrant workers' identity strain had a positive impact on turnover, and supervisory support climate, serving as a type of job resource, buffered this effect. The interacting effects of identity strain and supervisory support climate on turnover was mediated by adjustment.
