Chris CurryHost: I have taught Economics for the last 27 years, since completing my PGCSE in Business Education at Sheffield Hallam University. I have been a heard of department for the last 20 years and have worked as an examiner for AQA.

The supply curve for labour shows how much labour a worker will supply at different wage rates. In this lesson, students will learn how the supply curve for labour is created and how it can be affected by both monetary and non-monetary factors. Students will also learn why the supply curve for labour slopes upwards from left to right as well as what the substitution and income effects are. This class is aimed at students in Years 12-13 who want to gain a better understanding of economics!
