This article undertakes to delineate the main types of labor market structures in the United States, using as its differentiating criterion the "established practices" in employment, characteristic of each segment of the market. Some sectors of the labor market arc found to be marked by unilateral rule-making by employers, others are primarily government regulated, while the largest and most important parts are governed by union-management agreements. The nature and extent of formal employment rules and employee rights vary widely in the different segments of the market.
