Each question should be answered in one well written paragraph of 50-200 words (so you will write 4 paragraphs total). You may need to do a little additional research. Papers will be checked for plagiarism so write answers in your own words. Answer every question asked and follow directions to receive maximum points.
Submit your answer as a WORD or PDF document here in eCampus (click “attach files”). FAILURE TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS WILL RESULT IN POINTS TAKEN OFF OR WORK NOT ACCEPTED. (Google docs can easily be converted into pdf files – you can figure out how).

Basic economics tells us price floors will have what result on a market? Draw a market graph for labor showing this outcome (DO NOT COPY AND PASTE AN IMAGE FROM THE INTERNET). You can embed your image in the document, or simply submit it as a second file (eCampus will allow more than one file to be submitted for the assigment). Write a paragraph explaining this your graph/this result. Remember – in a labor market, the workers supply labor, businesses demand our labor, and the price of labor is called a wage. Quantity supplied and quantity demanded at the price control should be labeled. (50 points)

What are some reasons why the real world outcome didn’t match what economists were expecting with regard to employment? (20 points)
