The employees at Warren Manufacturing Company are unionized. As minimum requirements, the union members insist on keeping a work force of at least 300 workers, and accepting an hourly wage rate of no less than $8. Beyond those minimum requirements, however, they are considering some different economic goals. Calculated on an hourly basis, the employees' marginal revenue product schedule is:
