If TruLite's basic production employee receives an hourly wage of Comp = \$5.00 + .10 Q in which Q is the number of light switches installed per hour, then: Answer
 \$5.00 is the basic incentive to produce. Q is completely dependent on random elements in the production system. \$0.10 is the incentive to increase effort. effort is unimportant in this production system.

\$0.10 is the incentive to increase effort.

the first option is not the incentive, it is the base pay (\$5.00)

Q is not dependent - it is the independent variable and is the number that is produced

effort is important in this system - the effort determines the pay amount for each employee

So, \$0.10 is the incentive to increase effort. is the correct answer.

 the employee can remain completely risk-averse. the employee must accept risk of production variability. output becomes a subjective measure of performance. there are no compensating differentials.
