Write a 4- to 5-page paper that addresses the following questions:
- Discuss two factors that would increase demand for labor.
- If the market price of the good or service that a firm produces increases, what happen to the demand of labor? Explain.
- Suppose that some government-sanctioned licensing requirements are lifted (removed) in a particular industry. What would happen to the wage in this market? Explain.
