Workers turnover has been studied in Jordan to find out the main reasons causing this problem. A questionnaire was designed and distributed over twenty eight factories in Jordan, seven factories in each of the three main industrial cities there, and seven factories outside these industrial cities. Five main categories for workers turnover were studied and investigated. The salary, the working environment, the helpfulness and corporation of the management, the worker psychological state and relationships with surrounding environment, and the services provided by the employer to the employee. Analysis of the results showed that the main reason for turnover in industrial cities is the salary. which affects workers in industrial cities located closer to big cities more. One the other hand workers in factories located outside industrial cities suffer mainly from working conditions and environment, which force them to leave. These two reasons are the main issues of workers in industrial sector in Jordan as just an example of Middle Eastern countries.
