The Role of Occupational Attainment, Labor Market Structure, and Earnings Inequality on the Relative Earnings of Mexican Americans: 1986-1992.
Pagan, Jose A.; Cardenas, Gilberto
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v19 n3 p243-67 Aug 1997
Relative earnings of young Mexican American workers declined during 1986-92, influenced by recession-induced changes in the U.S. earnings structure and new immigration laws. Although Mexican American females experienced significantly greater occupational segregation than males, structural changes in labor demand worked to reduce the gender earnings gap by 67%.
