Amount of labor , Managerial Economics

One lumber producer may locate a plant in the same area.  If it does, there will be more competition for labor and the labor supply function facing Northern will shift to
            w = 50 + 0.04L dan ME = 50 + 0.08L

Because of increased competition in the market for lumber, Northern demand function will become more elastic with the price elasticity of demand decreasing to -4.0.
