The past 20 years have been a period of broad policy changes in Taiwan with the most drastic changes occurring sin the social and industrial environment. The changes also have had considerable impacts on the work content, working characteristics, social status, and work consciousness of workers in different professions. This study aimed to explore the differences and changes in social status, job satisfaction, turnover intention, and other important work consciousness of elementary and secondary school teachers from other professional workers under these changes in the policy and social environments over the past 20 years. A large sample of questionnaire data (1997 and 2015) from two issues of the Taiwan Social Change Survey was used for analysis. The results first showed that the subjective social status of teachers in primary and secondary schools has recently declined, mainly because they reduced the advantage of job stability and job autonomy. Second, although the job satisfaction of primary and secondary school teachers is still not low, there is no big advantage compared to other workers. Finally, under the circumstances of low salary and poor employment conditions, the turnover intention of all workers is generally high. However, because the working characteristics of primary and secondary school teachers are still relatively good, the turnover intention of primary and secondary school teachers is significantly lower than that of other occupations.
