Enter the surplus value of unpaid labor ($) and the total wages paid ($) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Exploitation Rate.

## Exploitation Rate Formula

EXR = SVUL / TW

Variables:

- EXR is the Exploitation Rate ($/$)
- SVUL is the surplus value of unpaid labor ($)
- TW is the total wages paid ($)

To calculate the Exploitation Rate, divide the surplus value of unpaid labor by the total value of wages paid.

## How to Calculate Exploitation Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Exploitation Rate.

- First, determine the surplus value of unpaid labor ($).
- Next, determine the total wages paid ($).
- Next, gather the formula from above = EXR = SVUL / TW.
- Finally, calculate the Exploitation Rate.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
