    The model delivers substantial volatility of unemployment through a mechanism similar to the one in Hall ()?unemployment is high in periods when the wage bargain is unfavorable to employers. In times of low productivity, the wage falls only partly in response; . With no union, the equilibrium wage rate would be $18 per hour and there would be 8, bus drivers. If the union has enough negotiating power to raise the wage to $4 per hour higher than under the original equilibrium, the new wage would be $22 per hour.

    The Limited Influence of Unemployment on the Wage Bargain The model of the wage-setting process at the heart of our analysis is a non-cooperative alter- the sensitivity of unemployment to productivity is lower. The success of our explanation of unemployment volatility depends on the realism of our inputs. Macroeconomics and Microeconomics Differences. Macroeconomicsis a study that deals with the factors that are impacting the local, regional, national, or overall economy and it takes the averages and aggregates of the overall economy whereas Microeconomics is a narrower concept and it is concerned with the decision making of single economic variables and it only interprets the tiny components. Minimum wage laws set legal minimums for the hourly wages paid to certain groups of workers. In the United States, amendments to the Fair Labor Standards Act have increased the federal minimum wage from $ per hour in to $ in Minimum wage laws were invented in Australia and New Zealand with the [ ].

    Suppose the government introduces a minimum wage that exceeds the market wage (figure 3). The wage-setting curve then has a vertical portion at the minimum wage. As higher wages cut into their profits, firms open fewer vacancies, and the unemployment rate increases (from U* to U with a line over it in the figure). So in this scenario, a binding Cited by: 6.

"Shimer (a) argues that the Mortensen-Pissarides equilibrium search model of unemployment explains only about 10% of the response in the job-finding rate to an aggregate productivity shock. Some of the recent papers inspired by his critique are reviewed and commented on here.
