Details: Product Description Market leading, "Labour Market Economics" balances the right theoretical coverage with Canadian policy issues. The pedagogy focuses on worked examples, extensive problem material, clear figure captions and a glossary. The text provides students with the tools they need for critical thinking about labour market problems. Canadian labour issues are discussed within the context of a more general theoretical and empirical framework applicable to the labour problems of most developed countries. Thomas Lemieux from the University of British Columbia joins the author team for the sixth edition of the text.
