Another Look at the Enclave Economy Thesis: Chinese Immigrants in the Ethnic Labor Market.
Mar, Don
Amerasia Journal, v17 n3 p5-21 1991
Experiences of 165 Chinese immigrants to San Francisco (California) who arrived between 1965 and 1975 suggest that workers employed in the ethnic labor market (enclave economy) have lower wages, higher turnover, and less promotional opportunities than workers in other labor markets. Positive aspects of the enclave economy are discussed. (SLD)
