WILDCAT STRIKE: An unofficial and usually spontaneous strike or work stoppage by union members. A wildcat strike is not authorized by the labor union representing the workers. Such strikes generally occur because (1) labor has specific problems or concerns that have not been satisfactorily addressed by employers or (2) workers feel that union leaders are not acting in the best interest of the union members. This is also termed an outlaw strike.

BID-RENT CURVE: A line or curve that shows the relation between the rent economic activities are willing to pay for land (bid-rent) and the distance of the land from the point of attraction (such as the cent of a city). The bid-rent curve has a negative slope because the activities balance the bid-rent with the cost of transportation to the point of attraction. Farther distances require greater transportation cost and thus reduce the amount of rent that can be paid. The bid-rent curve indicates why rents, and by inference land values, tend to be higher near central locations.
