    The theory assumes that labor is a commodity and an equilibrium wage exist at the value where the downward sloping demand for labor curve intersect the upward sloping supply of labor curve, and that labor markets clear because participants have perfect information so employees and employers find each other

    The labor market, if allowed to adjust freely to market conditions, will mean that the number of workers demanded will equal the number of workers supplied. That number will be the number that is actually hired. Do to the price allocation, all other workers would have taken themselves out of the market voluntarily. They would not be part of the supply curve at that price. If they take themselves out of the market voluntarily, they cannot be considered unemployed. Only those who want jobs are considered unemployed.

    There are two reasons

    1. the nominal wage can be adjusted freely.

    2. the market entry will ensure the lowest cost in the market, not by exploiting the cheap wage rate.
