The Labor Market Status of Immigrants: Effects of the Unemployment Rate at Arrival and Duration of Residence.
Chiswick, Barry R.; And Others
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v50 n2 p289-303 Jan 1997
Examination of four Current Population Survey samples shows that schooling and work experience had smaller effects on the unemployment of immigrants than of native white men; despite initial difficulties in finding work, immigrants quickly attain comparable employment/unemployment rates; and immigrants are somewhat more vulnerable to economic cycles, but there is no evidence of long-term effects on those who arrive during a recession.
