IMMIGRATION AND THE EARNINGS OF YOUNG NATIVE WORKERS

Show Summary Details

Preview

This paper studies the impact of increased immigration in Austria on the wages of young native blue collar workers. We find that in regions, industries, or firms with a larger foreign share, Austrians earn higher wages. With respect to the impact of changes in the immigrant share on wage growth, the results are mixed. We develop a simple bargaining model which is consistent with these surprising results.
