FEATHERBEDDING: A labor union practice of artificially increasing the number of workers employed even though the specific job or task can be completed with fewer workers. This can be done mandating that specific jobs be performed only by workers with specific skill levels or be mandating that a certain number of workers are needed to perform a job or task. By increasing the demand for workers, featherbedding also keeps wages higher.

  • What are the consequences of the move to the market? What is the price and quantity at the new market equilibrium?
  • Is the market move good or bad? How does the new equilibrium compare with the old? Is the price higher or lower? Is the quantity greater or less? Three Questions
