Can someone explain to me the pecuniary and non-pecuniary factors? Thank you
Pecuniary factors are the financial related reasons which would affect the supply of labour, such as the wage rate, the opportunity to work overtime, bonuses and commissions.
Non-pecuniary are the non financial reasons, there are many but some include of status, flexibility of work hours, location of job, job security, pleasantness of a job etc

It has a low concentration ratio, as it it is a competitive market structure (plenty of firms) therefore no one firm has a dominant market share. In uncompetitive market structures such as an oligopoly or monopoly the market concentration ratio would he high

MRP = MP*MR, the theory states that the quantity of labour demanded is determined where the MCL (marginal cost of labour) meets the MRP curve, this is also the point where wages are demanded. As firms employ where MC=MR and they are profit maximisers.

unit labour costs are calculated by (wages/productivity)

so one reason is a change in the wage rate. a second reason is a change in productivity. then just explain those two.

First reason is if there is a change in wages
Second reason is if there is a change in productivity

To answer you'd probably just say what happens to unit labour costs if wage costs/ productivity goes up and then what happens if they go down and then say why i.e. increased productivity means workers can produce more output at the same price

Hi guys, could anyone please tell me what the three east topics are?

That is, I know there is always a part a and b that are related, and these are divided into the three main topics- leisure markets, labour markets and another one?

Unless I am completely wrong, in which case is there no set pattern?

Thank you. I knew they were the key influences but I didn't know how to elaborate on it lol

Do you mind telling me what diagram should I use to answer this question "Discuss the extent to which the ease of factor of substitution may influence the price elasticity of demand of labour" 20

Pretty sure it's low... There are a lot of firms and there's no firms that dominate that market

Thanks! So the workers aren't paid the extra revenue they bring to the firm?

I'm not sure about that, maybe just a supply and demand diagram showing different elasticities of demand- more elastic when factor substitution is easy etc. Don't take my word on that one though
