Direct manufacturing labour-related costs include pension contributions of $0.50 per hour, workers’ compensation insurance of $0.15 per hour, employee medical insurance of $0.40 per hour, and employment insurance, in addition to wages. Assume that as of January 1, 2013, the employment insurance rates are 7.5% of wages for employers and 7.5% of wages for employees.
