What is wage rate, Cost Accounting

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:

                                                        Employees          MRP

                                                         100                  $20

                                                         200                    18

                                                         300                    16

                                                         400                    14

                                                         450                    13

                                                         500                    12

                                                         550                    11

                                                         600                    10

                                                         650                      9

                                                         700                      8

                                                         800                      6

                                                         900                      4
