LSK.
Draw a point at the Korean equilibrium real wage rate and employment level.
Draw the U.S demand for labor curve and label it
LDUS.
Draw the U.S. supply of labor curve and label it
LSUS.
Draw a point at the U.S. equilibrium real wage rate and employment level.
Step 1

Korean market

The given information:

Real GDP per hour of labor is \$22

The real wage rate is \$15 per hour

People work and average of 46 hours per week.

Step 2

Figure -1 shows the Korean labor market:

Step 3
