This paper reports a set of simulation experiments with a service system . Finally, we discuss the implications of this work and future work that can be done in this area. Employment and Training in New Service Industries: The Case of Retailing.
This paper reports a set of simulation experiments with a service system model in which labor interchange is possible between service centers. It explores design and control aspects of labor and machine limited systems. A simple model with two service centers and two laborers is employed to explore the relationships among three experimental variables. The variables are the efficiency of labor.

A flexible and efficient labour market implies higher employment, and so an economy that is fairer (reducing. social exclusion for disadvantaged groups), as well as more competitive and more productive.
NBER Working Paper No. 4509 Issued in October 1993 NBER Program(s):Labor Studies Program. Our empirical findings challenge the prediction that a rise in the minimum reduces employment. To evaluate the impact of the law we surveyed 410 fast food restaurants in New Jersey and Pennsylvania before and after the rise in the minimum. Relative to stores in Pennsylvania, fast food restaurants in New Jersey increased employment by 13 percent. w4509. We also compare employment growth at stores in New Jersey that were initially paying high wages (and were unaffected by the new law) to employment changes at lower-wage stores
NBER Working Paper No. 57 Pages Posted: 24 Jul 2000. See all articles by David Card. We also compare employment growth at stores in New Jersey that were initially paying high wages (and were unaffected by the new law) to employment changes at lower-wage stores. Stores that were unaffected by the minimum wage had the same employment growth as stores in Pennsylvania, while stores that had to increase their wages increased their employment.
The employment numbers are also consistent with the other Institute of Supply Management survey, focused on service industries. It remained comfortably in growth territory in December even as its manufacturing counterpart took a dive. All of this raises the obvious question of where it leaves American workers in an election year. The United States has been at or below a 4 percent unemployment rate since March 2018, nearly two full years. If you are a manufacturing worker losing your job, you probably have more options than when the same thing happens in a recession.
Flexible labour markets create greater job insecurity and stress. Job security is often as important to workers as the level of wages. This insecurity could lead to lower morale and lower productivity for the firm in the long-run. Non-unionised part-time workers get smaller pay increases. Arguably flexible labour markets have created a bigger gap between those ‘insiders’ with secure job contracts, and those ‘outsiders’ without job contracts. Also, firms may have higher replacement costs for hiring more workers.

Differently, this paper belongs to the strand of the empirical literature that applies flexible functional forms to characterized productive behavior (Morrison, Berndt, 1981; Morrison, 1986, 1993; Atella, Quin-tieri, 1998a, b; Pierani, Rizzi, 2003). Precisely, our contribution builds upon Morrison (1988) in specifying a restricted cost model that accommodates multiple quasi-fixed inputs and maintains the consistency of the estimated function with microeconomic theory and approximation properties.
