a retailer experiences a seasonal demand pattern for its services. labor requirements over a typical six-month period follow.

costs associated with operations are as follows:
wages = $2,000 per worker per month
hiring cost = $1,000 per worker
layoff cost = $1,500 per worker
the current workforce level is 10 workers. use the spreadsheet approach and the preceding data to answer the following questions:
a. what is the total cost of the staffing plan, including the cost of regular wages, hiring, and layoffs using a chase strategy with hiring and layoffs, but no overtime?
b. what is the total cost of the staffing plan, using a level strategy in which no overtime is allowed, and the undertime paid for?
c. suppose that overtime is allowed up to 25% of the regular-time capacity, and that overtime wages are 150% of the regular-time rate. what is the total cost of the level strategy with overtime and undertime, which also minimizes undertime?
