equilibrium wage?
Initially the market has
Ld = 100000 - w and Ls = 10000 + 2w
This gives
100000 - w = 10000 + 2w
w* = 90000/3 = $30000
It is given that the equilibrium wage will remain unchanged in both cases. Select the first option, wage = $30,000.

Consider the following labor market Labor dernand: LD ap- w Labor supply: LS = as+ 2w where w is the wage, L is the number of workers, ap and as are constants Now suppose that business owners predict low sales next year so they reduce hiring and as a result, ap 70,000 and ag 10,000. But in this scenario wages are totally rigid and cannot adjust this year from its original level (i.e. when ap=100,000 and as10,000): find the equilibrium...
demand and supply Question 7 1 points Save Answer Consider the following labor market Labor demand: LD = ad-w Labor supply: LS = as - 2w where w is the wage, L is the number of workers, ap and as are constants Now suppose that business owners predict low sales next year so they reduce hiring and as a result, ap=70,000 and as=10,000. But in this scenario wages are totally rigid and cannot adjust this year from its original level...

What is the equilibrium employment level? Question 2 Consider the following labor market Labor demand: L ap- w Labor supply: LS = as 2w where w is the wage, Lis the number of workers, ap and as are constants a) Suppose that ap 100,000 and as10,000: find the equilibrium employment level L*30,000 L*35,000 L60,000 L70,000
where w is the wage, L is the number of workers, aD and aS are constants Suppose business owners predict low sales next year, so they reduce hiring. As a result, aD=70,000 and aS=10,000. Using the diagram for the labor market, answer what would happen to the demand and supply curves: Question 3 Consider the following labor market Labor demand: LD - ad-w Labor supply: LS = 35 + 2w where w is the wage, L is the number of...
Problem #4: Own-price elasticity Suppose the market labor demand curve is given by LD 20- (1/2)W and the market labor supply curve is given by LS-2W 1. Graph the labor demand curve and the labor supply curve on the same graph (with L on the horizontal axis and W on the vertical axis, as we have done in class). 2. Determine the equilibrium employment (L") and wage (W") in this market. Now suppose the government implements a minimum wage (WM)...
