Labor Unions are another form of market power in factor markets. Like monopsony, where effective unions are present we can expect both wage and numbers hired to be different from what would be expected if factor markets were competitive.

    The goals of unions aren't always strictly clear and different unions may have different goals. We will consider how a union might behave if it wished to increase wages for current members.
