This introductory textbook on the economics of labor markets offers chapters on patterns of hours of work; labor force participation; the demand for labor in the short and long terms; the determination of wages; education, training, and earnings differentials; occupational wage differentials; discrimination in the labor market; the economics of human resource management; union membership and collective bargaining; the economic impact of unions; and unemployment. For the new edition, the authors (of Georgia State U.) have updated the applications and the "In-the-News" boxes and have completely rewritten the section on the evolution of labor market theory.
