Marginal revenue product of labour (MRPL) is the extra revenue generated when an additional worker is employed.

Marginal Revenue Product of Labour

The formula for MRPL = marginal product of labour x marginal revenue.

The demand curve for labour tells us how many workers a business will employ at a given wage rate in a given time period

In the theory of competitive labour markets, the demand curve for labour comes from the estimated marginal revenue product of labour (MRPL)
