For example, unemployment workers from the closed-out typewriter company do not have skill sets demanded by computer industry Figure #1: 20 30 40 26. Refer to Figure 1. Without any of imposition of a minimum wage law by government, the equilibrium wage and employment in this market is and 60 workers b. 55 and 30 workers c. $5 and 500 workers d. S8 and 200 workers Hint: This question wants you to determine the equilibrium of the labor market.

Your task is to interpret the intersection point of the two lines: labor supply and labor demand. 27. Refer to Figure 1. If the government instituted a minimum wage of S6, in this market, unemployment would a increase by 20. b. fall by 20. c. increase by 40. d. full by 40. Hint: At minimum real wage (W/P) $6, the horizontal line at this real wage hits labor demand curve at Qº 20, and it also hits the labor supply at Q 40. This question wants you to determine what the market labor experiences with shortage or surplus employment at this minimum wage as follows: 0-00 >0 Surpluus = increase unemployment O-O O Shortage decrease unemployment 05-0=0 at Equilibrium No change unemployment 28.
