Since 1993, European countries have kept deepening their economic integration process through establishing the monetary union in 1999 and expanding their members to Eastern European countries. In this study it is analyzed to find out the new multinational economic framework, its mechanism and the effects of the economic integration. In this paper we focus on the labor market. Through the European economic integration including the unification of labor market, gradually citizens obtained the right of free mobility among member countries. In fact, labor mobility has been limited in Europe, even though mobility of goods and capital were increased evidently. We try to clarify the effects at labor market through the economic integration with previous works as Bonin et al. (2008), Zimmennann (2009) and statistic data from EUROSTAT. We are also interested in industrial labor share at the member countries. It is possible that the economic integration affects industrial structures of each member. Especially we focus on the new members in the Eastern European countries, because their industrial structures have not been rnatured yet. We employ here the Petty Clark's Law, to find out the effects at the time series data of industrial structures.
