Choose question tag  Suppose that the market for gourmet deli sandwiches is perfectly competitive and that the supply of workers in this industry is upward-sloping, so that wages increase as industry output increases. Delis in this market face the following total cost: where Q is the number of sandwiches and W is the daily wage paid to workers. The wage, which depends on total industry output, equals , where N is the number of firms. Market demand is ) In the long-run equilibrium, the market price is $____. Multiple Choice Answer: Tags Choose question tag  In a perfectly competitive industry, the equilibrium price is$56 and the minimum average total cost of the industry's firms is $40. If this is a constant-cost industry, we can expect that in the long run, firms will _____ the market, shifting the industry's short-run supply curve _____.
