Since under flexible wages the profit-maximizing level of non-production resources mi is equal to M* In, it is desirable for firms to expand mi as long as the wage rigidity constraint does not distort the outcome at stage 2. The next step is to show that firms do not expand beyond M. To see this suppose that mi > MIn. 25) employment in production at stage 2 stops at LX = ~ < Lx (M).
